Default RCV 120 2003 vintage

I have found a used but never run Fall 2003 vintage RCV 120. The photo of the engine appears to have a flywheel where my RCV 90 has the starter hex socket. Has the RCV 120 design changed over the years? Is the 2003 vintage OK if the price is good.[sm=confused.gif]

By the way I have a 90" Eindecker that flies OK on the 90 but should come to life with the 120.

Hi

There shouldn't be any problems with the older 120SP, but I would only consider purchasing the engine if the price is good. The main reason for this is that you wouldn't be entitled to our comprehensive 2 year warranty if you did experience any problems.

Since this time we have also improved the oil seal arrangement as well as the fact that all engines are individually test run at our UK factory prior to despatch.

I hope this helps with your decision
Best regards

Enclosed is a picture of the used RCV 120. The top looks like it has a fly wheel. Has the design changed???

Perhaps that's a field modification to allow the use of a starter with a standard rubber spinner cup? If so, it's a cool idea.

Sorry for the delay in replying, but for some reason I didn't receive notification that there was a message on the forum.

The engine shown has an eccentric gear adjustment, which RCV used to use during the manufacturing process for adjusting the gear mesh. We now achieve gear adjustment through a different method.
You will also note this engine has a centrifugal oil cap which reduced oil leakage from the crankcase. This is now achieved by an internal lip seal.

I hope this helps
Best regards
