    RE: Ohlsson & Rice Antique Airplane Engine

    Hi Jim, The only engine I have now is a Herb Wahl reproduction of the 1938 Gold Seal new in the box with the papers signed by your grand-dads partner Erwin Ohlsson . I am not a collector I just like to restore the O&R's . I just sold several on eBay the last few days & now restoring a O&R .049 race car for a collector . Good luck in your search . Max Hansen

    The guy who was selling the O&R's in W8YE's Market Place link is a buddy of mine...
    I sent him an e-mail and gave him a link to this thread.
    I don't know if the engines are still available though? (he should reply soon )

    RE: Ohlsson & Rice Antique Airplane Engine

    I stumbled onto this site because I was looking for information on an old Ohlsson engine that was used on a small outboard motor called an Aqua Bug. I read the above entries and thought about the Ohlsson and Rice .23 that was my first model airplane engine. It came in a blister pack that myDad brought home one evening, and we had to assemble it from scratch. I learned a lot about internal combustion engines with it. I used that engine until the front bearing was so worn that it wouldn't start. I think it was purchased at the old ABC Model Shop on South Main in Houston, Texas. This brings back a lot of fond memories over the years of Fox .35s, Spitfire .045s, Herkimer .049 and .074s, and after I got in the military in Japan, Enya and O.S.

    You must be joking!

    Without a list, it is hard to put a value on what you have but you will be lucky to get 250 bucks for what I see in the photo.

    RE: Ohlsson & Rice Antique Airplane Engine

    ebay may be a good place to look for a o&r engine... but some sellers may make a false listing and have the actual product but a false photo, so if you use ebay be weary
    take care of your plane and it will take care of you

    RE: Ohlsson & Rice Antique Airplane Engine

    Just purchasedan old balsa, gas powered airplane to hang in my garage and found this website while researching it.The plane is aparasol design of the prewar style, though I suspect the kitswere available for many years.I know it is hard to tell but the wings are red, white , & blue with early war AAF stars. The number on the wing appears to be AMA15808. There have never been any radio control servos, or line controls, I guess you just hand launched it and gave chase?The engine is an Ohlsson 60, s/n 5779, could someone tell me when this thingwas built?Maybe the name of the kit? Would it be considered a crime against humanity to re-cover the wing?

    RE: Ohlsson & Rice Antique Airplane Engine

    A second check will be interesting, is the number correct? Ohlsson 60, s/n 5779?
    If the number is correct it can be between 1941/42.

    1941 1228 to 4675
    1942 5998 to 10654

    RE: Ohlsson & Rice Antique Airplane Engine

    By the way I would not take the engine apart as it has a bunch of loose needle bearings in the front housing for the crank. Should be a hatch on the side for the batteries & maybe timer . Free flight , set the timer ,let it go & hope you can find it again. Max

    RE: Ohlsson & Rice Antique Airplane Engine

    Thank you so much for the information on my recent acquisition. The serial number is correct 5779. What is your opnion on restoring the Goldberg Sailplane? Would that be a mistake?
