Take the carb off and hit the head with a torch for a minute of so, then the bolts should come right out.

A torch is possibly too much, try a heat gun first. Aluminum expands more than steel so the screws should come out easily when hot. When castor is bubbling out of the gaps it should be hot enough.

The carb screws are probably glued in too, so heat is needed there as well.

Just warm it up in an oven or with a heat gun. Most of the time you don't even need to take them appart.

Not sure which model you have there, is it loop scavanged?

These are quite nice engines, lightweight and farily powerful for their weight. The one I have (loop scavanged, steel/iron construction) will do around 14000rpm on a 8x4 prop.

FYI only, a torch is fast and works great, won't hurt anything. Been using one for this for many years.

These are nice little engines, basically a knock-off of a O.S. .15

I don't know, which OS engine would that be?
It looks more like an Enya to me...?

I would still like to know which OS engine that would be...?

I can't remember seeing any OS .15 engine with a crank-case like that?
It was Enya (and Fuji, HB etc.) which had the removable, and rotatable, front and no removable backplate.

After googling a bit it seems this is perhaps the first version of the .15 engine from TT. The one I have is possibly slightly younger, but still with the the baffle on the piston.

Sorry, i typed faster than i thought...i think Kris is correct, it looks like the design was swiped from Enya, not O.S., but still a decent engine.

When TT started out they were copying Enyas. During that phase quality was hit and miss because the makers were learning. I saw one that had broken when someone flipped it in the hobby shop. Others were great. I would clean it up and try it. Since it has been run I would guess that it is one of the good ones.
TT quality grew by leaps and bounds. The ones I have are similar to the OS FP with some exceptions like the venturi (yes, CL) uses a sprinkler similar to a COX TD. All of my TT's (.10 to .25) are excellent runners. Here is the TT .10.
