Default HP 4-strokes

HP makes a .21 and a .49 4 stroke. I think there are two types of each one available. It seems there is a BB and plain bushing valve option. RJL/ Mecoa has production rights. They are older designs, very quite, but down in the power dept.( by todays standards). HP is a high quality 2 stroke and I' sure the 4c follow suit.

Default HP .49

The .49 has substantially more power than it did originally, Mr. RJL tightened up the tolerances, raised the compression and I think opened up the intake port a little. Turbo was right about the rotary valve, you can get it with a bronze bushing or bearing, don't know if it is ball or tapered roller.
