Default Engine test reports

In another forum there were topics started on vintage glow and diesel engines and many test reports got scattered through them, although they both morphed into just about any engine right up to some modern ones. I've gone through both topics and collected all the tests and have now got them all in one place on [link=http://sceptreflight.net/Model%20Engine%20Tests/Index.html]this[/link] web site. It's a work in progress because sooner or later more tests will get added but for now it's all up to date. Have fun browsing .

Excellent! I found a report on an engine I have which I had little idea how it should be run.

This was a lot of work to do. Thank you for this. I already got to relive a few memories reading a few of them. Again Thank you.

Thanks guys, there's still a few hiccups I have to sort out, for instance my daughter informed me that there's a program for joining seperate .pdf files together, but I'll get there. I've started the next phase which is adding photos of actual engines, whenever I can find them, below each test.
