Yes, Merry Christmas Bill.
Oh, nice strocker too.
Nice ..... I like the belt driven cam .... if you ever have one of those "moments" .... try fabricating a fake blower for it ..... that would probably turn a few heads .... :p :p :p

Nice piece Bill. Thanks for sharing it.

Here are the ones I have on hand. Funny you mention a blower Arn.....apparently they made an 87fs super charged version. If there is one I need to find it.
These others are all belt driven and range from a T-4 40, T-4 60 and the T-4 80
The 90 is the best of them all IMO.

I love the little motors and always enjoy looking at your collection.Must admit that i am
envious;).I have a question.Do you ever fire any of them up?.That would be a weakness for me, would have a hard time not trying them all out :)

What a beauty find Bill! Nice Christmas present indeed. My present will be a cabinet to show off all my beauties! Don't really want IKEA fake wood white, need real wood.

Townboy... I do run and fly many antique engines but if they are NIB I just leave them that way.
Many engines I have double or triple of so I know how most of them sound and it's always a thrill.
It's a tough part of the hobby to be in as many engine collectors have not even flown a model airplane, they devote all thier time and money to stricktly collecting. I'm trying to do both and it can be tough.... but lotsa fun.;)
ps. thanks for the nice comments gentleman!
