Default OS 46 VX-DF & Gleichauf pusher fan ?

Hello,

I have the new OS 46 VX-DF engine and Gleichauf Mini fan,
and I would like to use them in one of my DF model if that is
possible.

It there any problem to use OS 46 VX-DF engine with the pusher
fan (Byron type) ?

Does somebody already tried this combination ?

Regards,
Kristijan

I would imagine that cooling could be a problem, the OS 46 VX-DF was designed for a tractor fan set-up. For a pusher set-up you would need some kind of heat-sink head.

Hello Stuart,

Thanks for the reply.

I found out at the http://www.osengines.com/engines/osmg1847.html
that the OS-46 VX-DF can be used for both tractors and pusher fans.

Also it seems that the VX-DF version have already little larger head than
VR-DF type engine had.

Now I am little confused, are the datas at the website above correct,
or is there any danger to destroy the engine with the pusher fan ?

Regards,
Kristijan
