Sorry I have no idea on the "T" but the 3.5 is likely the displacement in CC, cubic centimeters.

Questions like this remind me of when I worked in a gun shop. Good gunsmiths are usually pretty cranky guys who aren't good with people. Our guy was an outstanding gunsmith, which meant you never let him talk to customers if you could help it. But occasionally some moron would call on the phone wanting free info on what was wrong with his gun, and some other moron that I had to be a coworker to would give the phone to Dave. It was usually worthwhile to stand there and listen to the conversation, because usually at some point Dave would say, "You're gonna have to hold it up to the phone a little closer so I can see it."

I'm not the one who posted for help identifying an engine on an online forum and thought someone could figure it out with nearly no description and no pictures.

Another one of Dave's frequent hits was to get calls asking how much a gun was worth. Don't ever ask a gunsmith that question. Don't even ask a salesman that question. It's your item; if you don't know what it's worth and can't be bothered to do some research then just keep it. Anyway, that also often got the "hold it up a little closer" comment, but if the moron on the other end still didn't get it he'd say, "Tell me how much my car is worth? I think it's about 5 years old. It's a Ford, a blue one. How much should I try to sell it for?"

Ok guys, I've had to remove a couple of posts from this thread. Please remember this, it's ok to disagree with people on RCU but you can't resort to insults or attacks on those people that you don't agree with.

I will ask what may be a dumb question. Is it an electric motor, or is it a glow engine?
If it is an electric motor I am totally lost.
If it is a glow engine it is probably 3.5cc (.21 cubic inch) displacement, but the T has me puzzled.
Can you upload a picture or two?
