Default Enya .60x Engine

Hey guys,
I just got this engine and do not know anything about it. It is Enya 60x. I read that it is a pretty good engine. It has darn good compression; it has been sitting unused for years now, but its all oiled.
What do you think about this engine and how much is it worth?

Thank you everyone.

On The auction site, I would say between 100.00 and 150.00 if it is mint NIB. I can't tell the condition from your photo.

It has been used, but still in good shape. Is it reliable and good engine?

Enya has a fine reputation for good running motors that last a LONG time given reasonable care.

Enjoy your motor.

I have seen them run and own a rear exhaust NIB. They are very good running engines timed for about 12,000 to 14,500 rpm.

I've got one the same as that except not pumped as that one seems to be. A brilliant engine, AAC construction (not ABC) and simply never seems to wear out. I use zero nitro in mine and get easy one flick starts. According to a chart I've got covering nearly all Enya models it's rated at 1.8HP (at unspecified revs) with a rev range of 2500-17,000.

Downunder,

What size prop do you run and do you have a tuned pipe?

I didn't look at the paperwork, I was going from memory, bad memory. [

I use a 12x6 black MA wide blade prop purely because I only fly for sport and it happened to work very well. With this prop and my standard 20% all castor it was turning 11,700 but after I raised the compression to 13.5:1 it then turned 12,500 (a 22% increase in HP) and exactly matched my 80X. I've never used a pipe on it because I don't have the need for one.

Dave,

Does that engine have any pinch at the top or does it turn over smooth and silky without a plug?

I'll check it out, I haven't run it yet. I bought it on Sept. 27, 2005, that's a long time to have an engine and not run it.

Dave,

You don't have to run it, just turn it over without the glow plug installed to feel for the pinch.

No really, I have some that are over 15 years old and have never been run.

Brian, it has no pinch at all, and rolls over as smooth as my Fitzpatricks, they are the bench mark for smoothness.
Dennis, I only have a few unrun engines, a couple of MDS 2.18s, 3 MDS 1.48s, a black and gold Irvine .53 and the Enya. I adapted a Super Tigre Swing muffler to the Enya, I have a box of about 40 mufflers and none would fit, not even Enya mufflers.

That's just how my rear exhaust is, no pinch but install a plug and the compression is impressive!

I ran it for 25 minutes on Fox 5% nitro fuel with 20% castor lube and a Fox standard GoldPost plug, it peaked at 11,400 with a ProZinger 12x7 but after 30 seconds it began to sag a little so I immediately richened it to 11,000. The prop range in the instructions is rather strange, 11 to 13 inches dia. and 12 to 8 inches of pitch which I take to mean an 11x12 to a 13x8. That makes the 12x7 too small. It sure runs nice. It barks pretty loud even with the .61/.90 SuperTigre Quiet Muffler. I accidently put a Fox #8 plug in it and it was a little rattly in the midrange so I changed to the Fox Standard, no more rattle.

IMO a 11-7 would not be too small. A chart would have been better.

If it was not an Enya chart it would not be correct.

I have the same engine and a OS .61 fsr muffler (#744) is a perfect fit on the enya .60X
My engine was new when I got it and has no pinch at TDC either. I thought my engine may have been poorly fitted, but it runs great. It is the AAC model. I expected it to be fitted similar to a ABC but it's not.

Here is a better solution for the Enya .60 muffler problem. I received these mufflers from Dar Zeelon today and they fit the Enya perfectly, the opening heighth in the muffler is higher than the engine opening but does not gap open. These mufflers are light and quiet.
