Default MVVS 120 twin boxer

Can the cylinders exaust be turned upwards so they point the same way as the carb.

TP,


This is an MVVS...

All the .15-.91 displacement cylinders (this engine has .61 cylinders) can be rotated, to have the exhaust port pointing in any of four directions...
This is best done before the engine is ever run, so new wear-patterns are established on pristine surfaces of new piston and sleeves.

However, the carburettor probably cannot be turned 90ΒΊ, so I cannot see how you would allow it to work properly.

No, TP.


Just that an extension would probably need to be fabricated, to use the Walbro carburettor on your engine...

Its solid parts will otherwise clash with the exhaust...

Yes you can rotate the cylinders. I never got the carb you have installed to run properly. No mater how far I backed the needles out, I could not get it to run rich enough. Most of my problems with this engine were solved by replacing the carb. The new car does not interfere with the mufflers but the linkages is not as simple as I'd like. You will have to install the mufflers the other way around.

One cylinder ran considerably hotter on my engine. I did some work internally to direct the fuel/air and now they run withing 5 deg of each other.

I haven't flow this engine yet but I have run it a considerable amount on the bench. I would solicit other opinions and or run this engine on the test bench some before you build a plane around it. My engine is running very well now but it didn't come out of the box that way.

Hi!
It can be done ...but don't lay down too much work on the MVVS 1.20 as it doesn't work too well!
Both the 1.20 and 1.24 twin was something the MVVS would likely forget today( These engines are no longer in production).
The twin engines doesn't run well. Ok ! They run but they cannot be run rich, don't idle too well without battery glow and don't throttle too well. Can you live with that then go ahead! But please don't use them in a scale plane.

Abner,


According to MVVS, one can only determine the position of the exhaust BEFORE the engine is first run...

However, according to my own experience with MVVS, after two tanks it is still possible...

You will need to redo the break-in... Since the piston(s) will now be at either 90ΒΊ or 180ΒΊ to its previous orientation; so the wear patterns must be reestablished.

What carb did you end up using? And what internal mods did you do?

I have received assistance from a fellow owner of these engines, who kindly gave me some very helpful information.

Here is mine, wearing diesel heads

Once I sort out the gas flow into the reeds and put on a new carb (a replacment Walbro able to flow enough fuel) I will run it in with the glow heads on. If I succeed in obtaining reliable running, I will post my findings here.
