Engine mounting in the Sabre 44

Post  GWILLIEFOX on Wed Mar 25, 2015 7:03 am


The engine in the Sabre 44 looks to be mounted at about a 45 degree angle.  I presume it used beam mounting, but what did the mounts look like?  I know how the later beam mounts work, but don't know how the 45 degree would work with a vertical split.

I had one of the older ones back in the mid fifties but darned if I remember how it was mounted. I THINK it was beam mounted. It had an OK Cub .049B mounted at 45 degrees and used a string wrapped around a pulley for starting. I soon found that the engine started easier by hand flipping. The plane had a black fuselage with yellow wings.

Later models had the OK Cub .049B with pull starter.

Mine never really flew, it was too heavy or perhaps I needed more nitro. I used about 8' - 10' lines and would swing it around with the engine running.

It was a .049B beam mounted with a hole in the firewall for the tank to stick thru, I'll post photos tonite.
