Default Need help identifying an airplane engine that has dual glow plugs.

Hello, I need help identifying an airplane engine that has dual glow plugs and appears to be vintage. The only identification is what looks to be a cat on the side of the engine, there are no other markings that I can see. Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks

I have a Saito 120 with dual plugs. One plug ignited will ignite both.

Default To glow plugs?

The most common vintage glow engine that had two glow plugs was the MERCO .60/.61 line of engines made in the late 1960's to early 1970's.., Would need a picture to verify.

Default Engine Identificaiton

No, I mean I would need a picture of Ridlon's engine to identify it. Back in 1970, I had the choice of buying a Merco .61 or an Enya .60III-TV engine for my pattern plane project. I held both of them in my hand at the local hobby shop and bought the Enya .60 for a whopping $42.50. It was the right choice. Nearly 53 years later, it is still in excellent condition and runs great.
