I keep finding these fantastic sorta old Enya engines for under 20 dollars.

ABC Schnurle ported, ball bearing engine with standard carburetor.  Pretty well gummed up on the inside, could hardly see the crankshaft for all the gunk.  It took an eight hour AF boil to free it up.  Lots of plier marks on the thrust washer, chucked it up in the drill press and using a fine jewelers file removed most of the scores, polished with used 400 grit.

I couldn't get the cylinder liner out, got it half way then it stopped.  I think a ring of gunk is at the bottom end stopping it.  I didn't want to force it so just put it back together.  Maybe later after I run it a time or two.  The bearings are smooth and there is plenty of compression.  

I have new gaskets on the way and I'm looking for a prop washer and nut, then I'll run it.

I may have to look for an .40 Enya on eBay.  I have a Hobbico Super Star 40 in the box that needs an engine.  After my old Super Tigre (which I stupidly gave away), I loved my Enyas the most.  More than any O.S I ever owned.

Thanks guys, it was a labor of love.  Smile

I picked up this .40 SS too.  More power (1.10 hp vs. 1.00 hp) in a smaller lighter package than the CX.  The SS features the upgraded carb without the air bleed and different porting.  Same displacement but everything including the crank shaft size is smaller.  These are 1980's vintage Enyas.

The SS required very little cleanup, just some warm Simple Green and a tooth brush.

Yes, I'm going to run them both, got some SIG 5% all castor coming.  I have a vintage .60 size Sterling P-51 kit and an ARay that I haven't built yet.

Got my old Fledging running yesterday after replacing the batteries.  The old Enya .29 started right off after I cleaned out the fuel tank and uncrossed the fuel lines....My mistake.  Sad

Taxied it around for a while on the driveway.  Son and I have got to find a field to fly it in, no clubs around here.
