    Annette,
    I'm not sure if I told you but a few years ago I found your old defunct site using that magic machine :) and saved all your engine tests into the sceptreflight list. I thought they might...

    The Enya 6002 (both the 40 and 45) are baffled piston engines so the transfer and exhaust ports have multiple bridges to hold the ring in place as do all other non Schneurle engines. My OS 40SR...

    A tiny drop of MEKP in an eye and you'll be blind in a matter of seconds. Not sure if MEK works as a substitute for amyl nitrate but iso propyl nitrate (IPN) certainly can be used.

    Just to show you never can tell with ST carbs, this is the carb from my NIB ST S45 ringed. Same idle needle as mentioned but a similar style barrel type main needle.

    Now that we've seen photos of your engine it doesn't use the more familiar (later) ST wire needle but the old style brass body type that just about all engines from that era used. If the engine with...

    Holy cow, that's ancient and probably a bit of a collector item too :). As Mr Cox said, you'll have to turn the front housing to have the carb upright and that should fix your starting problem. Going...

    Ah yes, my bad, I'd forgotten the RC carbs had the thread in them for the retaining screws. I don't know what the venturi size is for the 50CX but the carb listed for the 60-IIIB has the same 13mm...

    Although possible to fit an RC carb it'd be messy. Big Enyas like the 60X use two screws either side of the carb to clamp it in place but with the 61CXL being designed as a CL engine it uses the...

    Agree on Frank Bowman for rings but check to see how many rings it needs. The 60-III has two rings while the 60-IIIB has a single ring. Both are model 7033.

    Any engine with a removeable front housing will run in reverse simply by rotating the housing 90 degrees towards the exhaust side. Typical engines are the Enya, Irvine, K&B and OS FSR to name some.
