Boiling a Taifun

Post  rsv1cox on Tue Jan 09, 2018 3:14 pm

I have discussed this engine before with Ian and other responding with pertinent information.  It's missing the nut that hold the NVA on, about an M7 or 8 I think, other than that it's complete.

Three step process - Boil, hot Simple Green, hot water rinse.  Boiling didn't completely free the super stuck prop drive washer, but the hot Simple Green while turning the prop washer did.  Blow out with compressed and a spray of Remoil finished the job.  I did not boil the anodized parts, just Simple Green and rinse.

Photography sure brings out the flaws.  Guess I will have to blacken the needle and compressor thingy.

Yes, very close.  Looks like a combination of the two.  I wonder if Taifun and Webra were affiliated in some way.  Both made in Germany.

There was a Webra 2.5 that came with it that has the same slot-less hex machine screws for the case as the RC Groups engine has.  Mine is missing one head screw and one case screw.  Hard to find the same style I would think.





Odd induction on both. Taifun (Diesel) is reed similar to the early Cox engines, and the Webra has a rear rotary that is driven by a pin on the crankshaft. Picture above.
