irvine 15 diesel??
 
Ok group just punched up irvine engines on google up pops Quick Tech Hobbies they show Irvine Engines says UK made lists them pretty pricy. It gets more interesting
under parts they show just about every engine except the 20 They have a parts listing for an Irvine 15 , Glow head, diesel head, piston and liner sets for GLOW and DIESEL
carbs reg for U/C, RC airplane, and RC trucks maybe a very old listing??. martin

There was a diesel version in the rear exhaust XR.15 Irvine crankcase. I'm not sure what it was timed for, but I don't think it was an F2C engine. Some of the past discussions mentioned it being used in F2A years ago, and was quickly obsoleted. Yes it would be quite old.

Read the thread on user experience with this retailer on the gl*w forum.

I have no doubt these listings are very, very out of date.

I HAVE ONE Most certainly looks like a car engine has the car carb. rear exhaust source Just Engines 3/1994 I got it with a diesel head (not factory made by AJC)
It ran nicely on the bench do not recall the RPM numbers seemed ok good transitions, with my planes however sport type, rear exhaust an issue I do have a 90 degree stack
so it can be done with mods to a plane if your planes set up for a rear exhaust no issues martin

I recall there may have been issues with these guys (quick tech)

There are plenty of post about quicktech, they list lots of stuff that logically is not available any-more and they do not have the parts either...

The Irvine diesel range from "back in the day". All are long out of production.
