Default gas engines

Hi everyone, I have a question and need some help. I have a extra 260 plane and it calls for a 1.60 2 stroke or a 1.80 4 stroke. Can I put a gas engine on this plane? I am thinking about a dle 30 cc and would it like to know what all I would have to mod. on the plane. Thanks for all your help.

A DLE30 is an excellent replacement for glo 150-180 engines. In many cases and depending on the exact model, no modifications are needed at all.

DLE30 is a nice running engine, but the muffler that comes with it is a POS. Get a good pitts muffler from JTEC.

I agree, the stock muffler is hardly a good paperweight. Pretty much as loud as no muffler at all. Darn good engine though. Both of my DLE30s have Pitts wrap around mufflers on them and they even run smoother than with the stock muffler.

Hi Tazz05,
I have a seagull extra 260 and it has a pte36r in her http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJn9qHQFjL8

A dle30 would be great too.
I have been using my dle 30's with stock muffler with no problems, pitts do look cool but they can rob a bit of power.

Hi! Everybody,
I need a little help. I have a Morton M-5 that I bought in 1959. The man I bought it from did not give me any papers, ie; instructions, maintenance tips, etc. If anybody has papers on the M-5, I sure would appreciate a copy of them if you don't mind.
Thanks in advance.
