O&R engine nitro converted

Recommended Posts

Engine with Octura nitro-carb & gearbox with main-shaft for the Du Bro Hughes-300 or the Shark, this assembly has been in storage & very good condition [maybe not used, was a spare], the top of the piston is clean aluminum color, excellent compression

I did see that one last week and knew what it came off too, the seller stated that "WE PULLED THE PULL CORD BUT IT DOES NOT MOVE" was there anything wrong or was it just stuck with dried out oil from long term storage?

The starter mechanism has definitely been repaired at some point in the past (a common problem), only three of the screws are fitted & they aren't original.

Took off the complete cover with the pull-start [looks very good inside, the housing has 4 bolts, 1 original & 3 aftermarket ones], put a little nitro fuel into the cylinder to loosen up the piston & rings, then put some oil into the jug & carb too [for the bearings], hand turned the flywheel  & everything works, very strong compression, no sign of usage, the exhaust doesn't have any residue, the gearbox/clutch shows no wear, the glow plug is clean [as original], this assembly is for vintage r/c helicopter
