You may like to write to Weston UK. They would know for sure

Apparently there were several changes to the engine design over the years... Might even try contacting the person who used to represent RCV engines on this site as they may still get emails and or PM's.

RCV 60 SP sat unrun for many years - what to do before running

Oh my goodness RCV really did a number on these engines. I needed two RCV 60SP engines. I purchase a RCV 60 and it was one version, three point mount, which I could not use. Turned around and purchased another which is what I needed. Then received my what I thought was the same as my second one. Well, it is another version of the RCV 60 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️. So I have three different versions of the RCV 60. So back to finding a RCV 60 of that is the same as the second one.

Excited to find planes for the other ones 😂, wife is going to be mad…😂😂😂.

Next on the flight line…H9 Ultra Stick 40 with a series 01 RCV 60SP! Had an OS 55AX on it but the RCV is only .04 oz heavier! It sticks out the about a 1/2 less than the OS 55. Hopefully balance is still good 🙂. Going to put on a little bit bigger tires, because prop clearance is not too great.
