There's nothing like iron in your pistons to stir the blood of a RC true warrior!

(Plus she doesn't look bad either - the singer, that is).

Enya .45 SS, .50CXTN, .46MKII fourstroke, .53TN fourstroke, a 1.55 and a new .25 Diesel soon to be two. It's a shame they are so poorly marketed because they are buy it and run it without issues engines. And, for a long time too.

I have a 20 year old R120 4-stroke that has sat for a long time and needs going thru.
Is there anyone that goes thru these engines?
Thanks!

Really like my new 50SS. Light, powerful, great throttle response. Perfect engine for a 3D profile.

Hello; I have two 46 four strokes that I really like, I have had a few 53's and a 120R, and a 15II. All good, as well as this little 40 with open rockers. I would like one of those 15 diesels.

I think I'll join this club too.
Have lots of them, all good runners, always dependable.
49X- 2 each, 35SS, 40XTV, Several 60 two strokes, 45, 46 four stroke, two or three 91 four strokes, three or four small block 120 four strokes, two 120R's, and a 155R.
Used to have the 45, a couple 15's and a 19. All good engines.
Does anybody have the 180 two stroke, or even seen one????

....and by the way, I'm looking for: an 80 four stroke complete with muffler and a pipe, and a used muffler & pipe for the 91 four stroke (OS and magnuim will fit).

Brian, I have examined the 1.80 at the Toledo, it exhibits high quality.

Two R155's, one 240VT, one 120-4c, one 90-4c and one 60XF-III GM10 S AL-Chrome rear exhaust.

I really like the 155's, they are very fuel efficient and powerful. You need to do a few things to make them reliable for aerobatics and quiet them down. The 60 has the best cylinder/piston fit of any engine I have ever seen. Without the glow plug installed the engine can be rotated smoothly and easily thru TDC, with the plug installed the engine can't be turned over without a prop.

I would like a get a .53 for a small biplane.

I don't think they are being imported to the US anymore, The .53 is the only four stroke listed on the website and the two stroke count is down also.

du, dieseldan and I each bought Enya .25 Ds a few months ago, I'm about to buy another. They finally added Enya to their engine links, you had to do a search to find them before.

I have Enya: 11CXTV, 15TV, 19XTV, SS25BB, 40XTV, 45TV, 45CXTV, 2-GP60XLF-4(geared pump, rear exhaust), 60XF-4, 80XF Ring. Four Stroke Enyas: 35(open rockers), 40(open rockers), 53.

I would like to find a 49XTV, and a 41-four stroke.

I like my Enyas. The 45TV was my 1st throttled engine. I bought it cause it was cheaper than OS. Didn't kmow I would like them better!

My first Enya, .09IV I bought off the bay for only 26 dollars! People say they don't have great power but I would disagree. Plus I never had a smoother transitioning engine with such a low idle. Proud to have joined the club!!!

Has anyone else had a problem with the needle valve stop springs not having spring to them? My needle settings have been changing in flight on one of my R155s, always goes lean. I think I will try replacing them with the old part from Supertigre carbs.


The reason the setting was creaping was one ear is missing from the spring, dough!

I checked the needle valve springs from the ST carbs, the detent is at the end of the spring steel and will not contact the Enya needle valve splines.

I would prefer the ST spring, it seems to be better spring steel. I think I could make a die from a piece of 1/4" thick steel with a saw kerf on both sides and then ca a couple pieces of 1/32" piano wire to the face of my vise and mash the works to extend the detent.

Me to! .09, (4) .19's, SS.40, SS.50 ring, SS.50CX, .80 4 stroke.
I just wish someone in the US would pick up the distributorship that would (1) stock parts and (2) import the entire line. I would really like to have one of the .049 R/C engines from Enya.

Can I join too?

Enya 15III, 15IV, SS30BB, 90FS, 120R FS, and 155R FS (only one that hasn't yet seen fuel).

Trying to make up my mind if a Fox 25BB or the SS30 goes into my FF Taco.

4 strokers all! Good power, user friendly, and they last forever! I have a 90 (21 yrs old!)
an 80 ( 20 yrs old), 120R ( 20 yrs old), and a new 155R(a real sweetheart of an engine).
I run them all on Wildcat 20-20. 155R is in a new Rascal 110, a good combination. All are no tinkering, just fuel them up, fire up the Glo plug and FLY. Interestingly, 3 are mounted inverted and one is side mounted - all are happy!!!

Great engines.

Phil
