Do you remember what kind of prop and fuel you used to get that rpm?

Thanks! This was back in 2011, and not long after I started using glowplugboy fuel.

Maybe Mark could start up "1/2A engine of the month" over on 049 collectors.  Then we could all stretch our legs a little.
lol!

I would have to run - British 1/2A specifies engines up to 1.5cc!

One and only bid.  Got it for $1 plus shipping (which is $15 total to Aus.)  Razz  Not that I need another one, but hey!  Probably flew under the radar because of the description.

Rod.

Back to my original subject, I had given up ever seeing the engine I bought. (see above).  My "Testors" engine disappeared for over a month in transit after the USPS tracking stated it went from the US to Poland, Back to the US, back to Poland and then the tracking info stopped.  A month and a bit later it showed up Thumbs Up here in Aus. Good deal.  Only paid $15 shipped originally, but the seller refunded me.  I offered to pay when it arrived but he kindly let it go, so I got a free "Testors" Surestart.  Looks and feels good too, including the starter, prop & spinner.  What a deal lol!

Sounds like someone who sold didn't know their engines. Perhaps a friend who knew pulled the person's leg by telling them it was a Testors? Laughing

My "new Testors engine'.
lol!

Seriously, congrats on your find, Rod, I imagine you'll find a nice home for it. Wink

Hey, nothing special about a Surstart, but the price was right. Smile
