Owen Mate 2cc diesel

Ran my Mate 2cc yesterday just for some diesel fun. Master Airscrew 8x4 prop. Much better than the Zinger 9x4 I ran previously.

Re: Owen Mate 2cc diesel

Nice running little engine, what's your fuel mix if you don't mind me asking? I came accross a Taplin Twin MK III 8cc last summer and looking to get it running.

My usual mix is home brew 1/3 equal parts Sig castor oil, Canadian tire kerosene and ether from quick start cans (I use them to get my tractor running in the winter). I use MEKP about 1% to 2% by volume for ignition improver.

I also have tried 25 % oil and more kero in ball raced engines.

I had one of those taplin twins years ago. mine was easy to start and tune - if you are familiar with diesels. If you are not, you might want to practice on a single cylinder engine first.
