Default Super Tigre G20

I bought an used plane yesterday. The guy gave me also an used engine. It is big and said is it Super Tigre G20.
I looked it up in the website and cant find it.
It is obviously for giant scale due to the size.
How much is it worth?
Are they making it?
What size airplane is it for?
Thanks for any help

Maybe it is a 2000 or 20 cc does it look a little like the one in this brochure for the 2300?

G20 is a model number used by zenoah. http://www.horizonhobby.com/Products...rodId=ZENE20EI its a gas engine not a glow.
is it possible that he got the model number correct but the manufacture wrong?

Yes, the G20 is a Zenoah designation, but it is a failrly new engine design and not likely given away? ST uses the "G" designation for smaller glow engines, but not for the larger 2000/2300/3000/3500 glow engines. I am interested in what he has, waiting for his reply.

Another pic, maybe he gave it to me without knowing. He told me it is a glow engine but I am not so sure.
It came with a Pitts style muffler

That's identical to the marking on my Super Tigre 2300.

It is glow, and could be a 2000 or 20cc or it could be the 2300 or 23cc. Since he said G20, maybe it is the 2000/20cc. I don't know if it is the stroke or bore or both that increased it from a 20cc to the 23cc. Some one else likely does.

Let me know if you want to sell it.

Sincerely, Richard

Super tiger g2300 all the way! i have had 5 myself and sold / tuned hundreds of those buggers.
Tip#1 keep it close to the tank as possible
tip#2 low nitro fuel
and #3 use an O.S. type f plug

I love those big tigers. Sounds like an old 2 stroke dirt bike when you get it right.

Powerful but heavy. enjoy

As jmalone1982 says plus use ST fuel, which is 10% nitro and 10-12% oil, I think, but check me on that, Also here is a good site for info. http://members.cox.net/moorman1/Bigtigre.htm

The manual that comes with this engine specifically states "do not run this 2300 on less than 18% oil". It should not be treated as a big Super Tigre.

Thank you. As I said check me on the 10-12% oil as I was not that familiar with the small ST.

The SuperTigre 20 cc engine was the S-2000, then the 25 cc was the S-2500.  They also made an S-3000 and S-4500.  The 2300 is the G-2300, along with the G-3250.  The G-2300 has the "20" inside the stylized letter "G".

You must use a fuel with no less than 18% oil content when running the G-2300.  0%-10% nitro is OK, but you'll find that 5% is likely the best to use for handling and good power.

The other large 'Tigre engines can use fuel with 10%-12% oil content once they're fully broken-in.  The oil package in those engines should be 100% castor oil because that's how they were designed.
