We have incorporated many features of the full sized engine into this engine; to name a few: hemi head, large valves, with steel seats and bronze guides, special chrome-plated cylinders, 2 ring pistons, roller lifters, ball bearings throughout, oil pump, up draft carburetor with booster fan, and a 4130 steel tube motor mount with rubber dampers. All this to bring you the look, the sound, and the power of a true model airplane radial engine.
