    Fox .15 BB engine converted to diesel???

    Hi Gang:

    Has anybody converted the Fox BB .15 engine to diesel via a Davis head? If so, what were your results/

    I have heard from Bob Davis that this is a very good conversion. I have other Diesels that are no longer made that I am running now but I am looking for a good .15 for sport flying that I can get spare parts if I need them.

    I am now using a ST G-20/15 that has been chromed and fitted, a MVVS D7 that is very good and a MARZ that is also quite good.


    Any suggestions or comments about the Fox?

    TIA,

    Franchi

    Someone reported about a year ago that they were very happy with their Fox .15 conversion.

    Additionally, you might try a PAW. It is a current brand and comes in sizes from an .03 to a .60. They can also be purchased from Carlson, or from Eric Clutton (Dr. Diesel).

    Franchi,

    A Fox .15 with a Davis Diesel conversion is: crude looking, heavy and monster strong for it's size. It just may be the "Best" engine for a Davis head. Mine turned a black MAS 9x4 at 13,000+ RPM

    Thanks
    Francis
