Irvine 61 MkI

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I picked up a used Irivine 61 MkI.

(At least I'm assuming it's a MkI, because it's not a MkII. It is not red, and has a bolt on muffler, not bolt through.)

I can't find much info about these engines.

Is it considered a good engine?

How it is different from the MkII other than the muffler?

How does it like to run?

When were they last built?

... I'm just curious. I'm thinking it will work well on a BTE Venture 60...

Irvine make some very nice motors and their web pages are located at where you might find more information or at least an email address for inquiries.

I have had two .40's and one .60. They all ran excellent. I used OS #8 plug and Omega casterol 10% and 15% fuel. They required little adjustments once running. I ran them on the leaner side and they didn't miss a beat.

I recommend them.
