This engine is a conundrum - I was surprised that a "modern" silencer fitted it so that I could run it up.

It needs a good clean because the previous owner had left blackened polish all over it but the fins are a mess.

I can't decide if they have been turned down or the cylinder head is too big. Some are broken but that is an easy repair.

Anyway, after a bit of a kefuffle with a blocked NVA - it is a runner and a good one at that.

Looks turned down to me. Probably why it has a few broken fins. Cool old Enya!

Either that's not the correct head Ian, or the cylinder fins have been turned down (doubtful or maybe).  I keep a pretty good watch on these and have never seen another like it.  I have several including a couple NIB.

I have only cleaned up one of mine, tending to leave them "as received".  The stock mufflers are well integrated and look rather cool.

Comparing the pictures between Bob's and Ian's you can see how the fins extend further out over the exhaust flange on Bob's engine.

I don't know what happened to the cooling fins on the cylinder/crank-case part, they do look a bit short and damaged, but the head looks odd to me as well...

It looks a bit more like a Webra engine head somehow? The screw are further in from the edge than what Enya engines usually have. On Enyas they are usually right at the edge.

Have you taken the head off, it might not be a very good fit at all...?

There shouldn't be any bolt-through muffler attachments on those engines, as a far as I know. Seems to be a bit of a "Franken" engine...?

This motor is still on my "to do list" but it is a runner and an easy starter.

The fins are easily repairable but they will have to wait until I have a few more crankcases to repair. (and the time!) The fins have definitely been turned down and thinned and the engine modded to take a more modern silencer.

It will be rejuvenated!
