Default Name This Engine Please

Someone has engraved a "B" on the side, not sure why though.
Thanks for the help.

Since it has a "B" engraved on it, I vote we name it Beauregard.

The question is, did you just buy it?

Yes I do believe it is a Nelson FAI .40. Upping the ante from the .46 VX-DF are we?

I thought the "B" ment Beuford? What ever it is I know it's a classic and it looks fantastic. I love the classic old engines. I have a 1983 O.S. FS-1.20 (Before Surpass) that runs like a champ. That's the one that looks like a Saito.

Does your engine run? If you need parts I know someone who collects those old engines and he might have the parts for it once you figure out what you have there.

Yep, good deal on it I think, needs new P/L set though, can you still get parts for thesE?

Is it a FAI or F-1 Nelson?

Here, send him a Email and he'll let you know if he has your parts. But first we have to know exactly what it is. LOL!

It has a 2" spinner that seems to be part of the engine if this helps at all.

Most likely it is a F1 engine with the 2" spinner. Kind of looks like one of these. What is the exhaust timing in degrees? 165-170 is F1, higher is FAI

I think the first place to go is here http://www.pspec.com/default.asp If Dave Shadel cannot help, then you may have to start begging any other old pylon racers to see if they have part available. Nelsons are no longer made, let alone the older F1 and FAI engines. All good things must come to an end. The Nelson engines will be badly missed when they are all gone. They are something very special.

F-1 is it? Cool - better stock up on 60%! [>:]

And don't ask me to launch it if it's on a delta, I don't want to dissolve my eyeballs..

I'll get the degree wheel and check that out.

Nelsons are no longer made,
Not true VG, Mike Langlois is making them now. Check out the April NMPRA newsletter.

Stay with lower nitro content sport fuel (30% or less) and it will last for a very long time.

Noise? Only about 115 dB give or take and is music. Four of them on the line singing at 22.5 is a concert. The great thing about these engines on clean airplanes is the way they unload. In the air they pick up another 5K.

And then there was the smell of 65% nitro with these engines gulping down 3 oz/min. I broke mine in on 15% which cost about a thousand rpm off the top but also lowered fuel consumption to only 2 oz/min and didn't kill the plug every flight.

Usually you dig them out of the ground. But I have seen them dug out of other things too, including one guys upper thigh.
