Default Irvine .40 RC Sport Engine-What Have I Got?

I just picked up a collection of stuff from someone who got out of the hobby in the 80's. Most of it was junk, but included is a "new-in-box" Irvine .40 RC Sport motor.

I'm familiar with OS, Tower, Magnum, API, and Super Tiger motors, but not Irvine. I'm considering installing this motor into a Great Planes "Old Timer", rather than using my OS .40 FP, but if it doesn't have the power of an FP, I'll skip it.

Anyone familiar with this motor?

(Also got a "Goldberg Eagle 63" kit , half built, in the package.)

Thanks!

Irvings are great motors! They are built in England, and we can get them cheaper that the OS's over here. I have a .40 that I have run a ton a fuel through, and a .71 that pulls my venture 60 like no tomorrow. The profile boys call the .53 a stump puller. One thing about it, they are very reliable, easy to tune in, and start.

Bolt it on and let her rip!

The Irvine will run very well on 0% nitro ! It is an excellent engine.
