Fuji, not a popular line of engines, but this one is interesting.

One piece head and cylinder, 360 degree spaced intake ports, one piece case, and domed piston with no rings. Looks to be about .35 size but no displacement indicator anywhere on the engine.

It was pretty clean when I got it, no wear on the crankshaft or piston. Low time engine. But one corner of the left bearer is broken off exposing one of the securing holes and the brass spray bar was bent. I could not get the needle valve out and was wondering why. Heat and penetrating oil was no help, so I used the method of last resort to get it out.

I inserted a same size drift to straighten the spray bar and used opposite pressure and got it straight, but it was still tight so I used a little bore paste with the needle inserted and worked it in. It was more the external threads than the internal opening. Smooth as silk now.

I hope to run it some day. Sure would look nice on a vintage bi-plane.

If anyone can help me fill in the history of this engine, I sure would appreciate it.

Nice looking mill Bob. You can sift through this
until someone chimes in.

Thanks for that link Bob. Your search engine must be better than mine (google chrome) didn't find that. Maybe my limited computer skills were a factor.

The very first picture shows this one. I thought it must have come with an attached fuel tank as there is a fixing boss there for it.

I bookmarked it for later enjoyment.

Thanks again - Bob

Bob, I searched Yahoo, and clicked "images" on the header,
then clicked "page" next to a photo that looked similar to your engine.
That's where I found the Model Engine News site.
More blind searching, than anything. Glad to help.

Ron was a great guy (& fellow Aussie) and is sadly missed. His wife wasn't interested in the site continuing, but Ron somehow arranged for it to continue for years to come, even when no-one would take it on. He took subscriptions and must have payed in advance for the site to continue for a long time. There is a huge amount of info there and I hope that there is someone in the wings who can take over & keep it updated.
When you want to find info on an engine, go to "Engine Finder" on the site and it lists everything on there alphabetically. Some have stories and some just pictures, but a real handy reference.

Rod.

Looks like they mainly had .099 engines with the exception of a .29 which looked similar.  Maybe that's what you have if you thought .35.

Thanks for the links guys.

Yes, a .29 as ID'd in the first picture on that link. Lot's of 09999999's though too. Smile

First picture is a comparo of an Enya .29, second of a .19 both from the same Fuji era. In overall size the Fuji seems to fit right inbetween. Checkout that Enya .19 carburetor, first TV that they offered. No idle stop or air bleed. Control arm is original Enya.

Yes, thanks for that link. I just spent some time looking it over. By it's size and interest potential I could spend most of a day there. Seems like the Aussies have the corner on model engine experts, Rod, Ron RIP, Bob Allan and all. From what I have read, Germany, Australia, and the US were primary users of these little marvels.
