I got a .40 from a buddy that was attched to a 'hanger queen' (Lincoln Standard) bipe, never ran, bolted it to my favorite R/C plane and flew the crap out of it for a summer, took it off and eBayed it before it got damaged. Ran ok, had Perry carb, which i never had issues, no Rossi, but no slug either.

opps, HP!

There was a gold and black HP .40 that was pretty hot, other then that not much differance then, say a Irvine, kinda cool if you want something different for a power plant...and if the price is right, why not.

I had no idea House of Parliament Sauce was sold over there Ron
Just about mandatory for bacon sarnies.
Very Happy

Back to the Motas....
The one above Mark has got made in Germany on the box.
Which as well as the groovy black carb I'd say marks it as
Later version.
The one's I'm looking at are made in Austria and the carbs look
Much more utilitarian....
Very Happy

Mark, your PDP engraving is in red. I own the .40 in black. I like the engine personally. My engine is made in W.Germany. I know there's another company that always seem to be confused with HB engines. It may be HP engine company. I'm just not an r/c guy. I had someone else fly and trim my plane for me. Every now and then I take it out and have someone fly the plane. The Perry carb works quite well. The idle is fantastic as well as the transition to full power. I believe the engine has a Dyke's ring. Very well made. I know the engine is quite heavy. I'm not sure if that's a factor with the r/c crowd. I obtained my engine in the late eighties. I believe the demise of the company was not far after that. Mecoa does has some parts as I needed some screws for the carb and a muffler that got damaged. The ones that I've seen on Ebay seem to retain a pretty good value. Ken

HP where made in Austria, parts are sold by Meccoa, including the four stroke VT engine.

HB is/was German. Nice old-school engines, I have a few of the .12 and .15 engines and a .21. Some spare parts for these are available from Meccoa too.

FYI...PDP, Perry Direct Porting, kind of a Schnuerle porting design. I've always had good luck with Perry carbs., alot of people used to bee-itch about them.

The Perry carbs are nice, they were the "thing" to have the time. The Veco .19 with a Perry is still a very competitive engine on larger props.
