Acquired and won the bidding war on a Enya .10 engine.
Was run a lot, so I tore it down and sonic cleaned it.
I had replacement gaskets for the engine.

One down side on taking it apart.
The previous owner didn't have the copper gasket between the head, that I could see,
(where the glow plug screws in) and the cylinder.

I used heat from my Top Flite heat gun to warm the engine up to get the pieces apart.
When it came time for removing the head from the cylinder, it was tough going?

I used so much heat the wrenches I was using were very hot, but I finally got the head broken loose.
I was able to screw the head out and what I found on the threads was JB Weld (Epoxy!).
And of course no copper head gasket between the head and cylinder.
If you don't use either the aluminum or copper gasket the head will unscrew.

Anyway,  I removed the JB Weld off the threads (popped off) and placed the dismantled engine into the sonic cleaner.
Take a look at the before and after. It looks like a different engine?

That's the score of the month. That's one cool looking engine. Have you found any archival info on it? Are you going to tell us what the "good price" was?

The Enya .10 was originally purchased in the mid 1970's. The early additions had the carburetor straight up/down, close to the cylinder head. Later additions had the carburetor angled forward to accept a muffler around the cylinder head. See the difference of in the photos of the Enya .049-II TV and the older Enya .10 TV, where the carburetor is slanted forward for the muffler.

Talked to "Paul" the son of the original owner who was selling dad's engine collection. I asked Paul if he had the jeweled plastic case, wrenches, and instructions which was the way it would have been originally sold.
Paul just found this engine in a box, inside a plastic bag and nothing else.
I asked Paul how his dad was able to acquire this engine and he said his dad flew for an airlines and flew from California to Japan and other Asian countries and would come back with modeling stuff.

These small Enya engines (Enya .049 / Enya .06 / Enya .08 / and Enya .10 ) were not shipped to the USA.
They were for the home market.

Here is the history of Enya engines:
http://www.svensktmodellflyg.se/users/5466/ENYA_Model_Engine_Compendium.pdf

Page #58 and page #59, from the pdf file above will give you a little history of these little engines.

So, I won the Enya .10 engine at a bid of $94.56 (with shipping and sales tax included).

I just won on another auction (British *bay) on a Enya .049-II (lightly used) for $89.53 (with shipping and sales tax included).
It's missing the prop washer, but has the box, wrench, and muffler (no instructions - catalog).

Very nice little engines you have aquired. Thanks for posting them. Very interesting set up with the carburetors.

At the risk of poking my neck out-that photo of the Enya 049 does not show the correct muffler-the one in the photo beside the box is a G-Mark 061 muffler if I'm not mistaken....

That was a "good price" for the sellers I'd say.  I love my Enyas, but that seems an awful lot of money.  I know these are pretty rare in western countries, but that would be well above my limit.  I guess if you want 'em, get 'em if you have money to burn. Burning Cash
