I have built a unique type of Tether Model Car and need the most powerful Oliver Tiger 2.5cc engine possible to power it and opted for a Tom Ridley GT15. I ordered one from our late friend Tom in February 2016, but unfortunately Tom did not complete my order. So if any one can let me have one in as new condition, I will pay a sensible price. I have some rare original Oliver which I might P/Exchange? Revised 15th May 2017.
Thank you John Goodall.
The Tiny Tiger has sold very well and we have just a few left now. This engine is superbly made with twin ball race main shaft and precise fits in all areas. It replaces the equally superb Schlosser 0.25cc engine which is no longer available and if you are lucky to find one new as the TT is, it will cost you circa £200?? The TT is just as easy to start when you have the technique because of the TBR, it is more powerful and slightly smaller in overall size. Why delay until they are all sold? We will accept suitable Part Exchanges.
The Mini Eta of 0.35cc is nearing completion and supplies should be available 6-8 weeks from today 15th May 2017. This good news was received this morning. It is the first Eta 15 miniature to be made and has die cast case with twin ball race supported crank shaft as for the TT. It will have the benefit of modern materials and manufacturing techniques.
Order either engine now to avoid disappointment.
I have been slowly disposing of some engines from my collection over recent years, mostly foreign so far. However if you are looking for a special, or difficult to find motor please check with me. I do have a few unique engines available, how about a pair of very rare MK twins from Japan? One is diesel the other glow and made by M. Kamikazi and based on Enya cylinder assemblies. A pair recently were sold on ebay for over £700!! I also have a rare and lovely little 0.040 cu ins Tee Pee Twin made by J.A. Thompson of Tee Pee Line in Arizona, USA. Based on Cox 0.020 engines geared and with RC throttle, NIB with instructions. Please enquire. Regards, John.
