I just received the engine shown below from a modeller in Prague.
He claims it is a factory issue 6.5 ccm diesel (!) that was never sold commercially.
Is this correct? Items of note:
* The carb has a butterfly instead of a rotor. It looks like a heli carb. It appears to be MVVS manufacture but I have never seen an MVVS
carb like it.
* The diesel button appears well executed. It has a nice "clicker" ratchet, like the Soviet KMD 2.5 cc diesel, for positive compression setting.
Can you assist? I particularly wish to know if this engine truly is a factory conversion.
It appears in fairly good order, although the front muffler screw hole has stripped it's thread
