200 degree C is much too hot. It's quite near the critical heat treatment temperature for some Aluminium Alloys. If there's any plastic in the engine it may have been destroyed. 100 degrees C should...

Quite a normal thing to happen to diesels. Lots of ways to unstick them. I'm assuming that they're not ball bearing engines. Usually heat works best, but don't get them too hot. You could stick then...

It won't be rocket science. The fuel will be some variation of the traditional Oliver Tiger brew. 30% Ether, 20% Castor, 50% Kerosene with about 15 to 20 ml of Amsoil per litre of fuel. Modify...

OK sounds like you have the deal under control. Certainly too little Ether or lack of a DII will cause problems. I don't know if I'd consider the McCoy as a powerhouse. Diesels have moved on a lot...

Possibly not a good place to start a journey into the model diesel engine experience. A new PAW 09 would be my choice. The engine is likely to be at least +65 Y/O, and it has a rather vulnerable...

Well used older Eastern European F2C or F2F or F2CN 2.5cc Racing Diesel. Suggest that you try your question on the Barton Control Line Forum. More chance of someone there identifying it.

I can't talk for anything other than the half dozen containers of Amsoil Cetane Boost I bought a decade ago. I'd still only be 1/3 way through. These are a known quantity. If the MSDS is vague then...

Tony, I neglected to say that you add 10-20ml of Amsoil Cetane Boost to a Litre of mixed fuel. So you would add 5-10ml to half a Litre etc.

Good luck, Ray

I have a few ETA .29's including the Eastern European mk4 copy. What do you need to know?

No idea, but I vaguely remember a discussion on here years ago about the different blends. The forum search function might help. Otherwise ring Davis.

PAW advise to just scrape the stuff off the piston top with a hobby knife blade. There are chemicals available for cleaning but I'd be cautious risking your valuable piston fit by using them....

Yep! That's a bad 'en. I have a collection of PAW conrods that look like that. Interestingly the Oliver tigers, Cubs etc don't egg out their little ends.

He said that the engine had good compression. A loose contra piston isn't conducive to good compression.

No, not normal! Probably a worn conrod "little end" . Often a consequence of regularly running overcompressed, or using a fuel without ignition improver.

PAW can supply and fit a new one.
