K&B .61 Prototype

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I picked up this K&B .61 engine off of ebay, it was advertised as a prototype. The serial number is 9B. It looks like it has not been run. It has a two ring piston, remote needle with no mount, No throttle stop in either direction, no idle mixture adjustment. Does anyone have one of these and what does it run like.

Re: K&B .61 Prototype

This is known as the K&B Twister .61 It is an ABC engine with two oil retention grooves in the upper part of the piston. Quite a performer but requires a special wrench to remove the gold cooling jacket on the cylinder. It is not a rare engine, I hope you got a fair price for it.
