If you went to the link in first post...the last Holt photos (after Grey Caterpillar) in the show is a Holt engine my friend made...not from castings. He done it the hard way??? He gives me very good tips on what how to do set-up ect. A very good machinist he is! Capt,n

You should finish the engine as an airplane engine instead of a flywheel like a WW1 Mercedes with a radiator like a Fokker D7.

I'll take the Ryobi. The one you were trying to run on Gas, Glow.

We talked about it a few months ago, before your vacation.

I'm trying to wrap my brain around this...

You seem to be baiting a forum populated with bargain hunters,and motorheads with a promise of "free engines" that they cannot have quite yet.

In order to obtain said engine(s)they must "stay tuned" for three or four days,for you to get around to completing post #1 by adding the pictures.
ONLY at that time, can the member(s) "lucky enough" to be sitting around at the computer take one (or more?) of your engines/parts for the cost of shipping.


Do I have the gist of this game?

If I have it all wrong,please correct,and accept my apologies.

Seems like posting a notice that the day before I post photo I could set a time like 4pm....and see what happens the next day at 4? Its something like that or???? Golly I sure do not want to toss them[:-] Capt,n

For whomever sets this up, I am interested in a 15-18-20-22 cc weedeater engine for conversion. I have 23 and 25 and 32 cc ones, but would like to put a CDI on a small one for 60 size sport plane. I would even pay for one of the small ones, I can't seem to find one around here. Thanks.

Sincerely,

Dick Smith
