    This ET1 engine is excellent! I received my order in just 3 weeks (France), and it was perfectly packed. I am completely satisfied with this engine. The machining of the parts is really very good considering the selling price of this engine! Of course, you have to make a few small adjustments to make the engine work well, but nothing very nasty for a little handyman! I rotate it with petrol 98 + 2% oil 2T for karting , and I oil the various bearings and axes with a drop of MECARUN P18 (anti-friction additive). The critical points of this engine are the too important play of the 2 bearing bearings of the crankshaft (easily replaceable by smooth rings machined in bronze), and the wooden support (school plumier style) which is crappy! Otherwise the rest is really of very good quality and this engine is really worth buying by enthusiasts of small precision mechanics! Regis

    ET1 arrived @ home very fast ( after 2 weeks ) ,nicely packaged , no outside transport damage , but when testing no highvoltage ( spark ) the battery holder has a problem of holding the batteries in good positition ( see pic. ), I replaced it with one I had in spare from another project and now the ignition is ok, test run is for later time, but I think it should work , keep u all posted .

    日本から頼みましたが、しっかり包装されて届きました。 追加で、手回しスターターが装備されてました。 あと、フラグの接続はされてなかったので、工夫して接続してみたいと思います。 なので、まだ、始動は出来ていません。

    Excellent model. Well constructed and precision engineering. 15 days from China to New Zealand. My expectations have been rewarded. Well packaged with sturdy carton and foam moulded to suit the engine. Runs well. Supplied with starter cord, but starts easy by spinning the flywheel with an open palm hand.😃

    I have always wanted a hit and miss model engine. But the casting kits cost many hundreds of dollars and you must be a qualified machinist with a lathe and mill to build one. This engine is beautifully made and runs like a Swiss watch. It is a bargain price compared to the DIY kits. It is the most fun engine I have run in a long time!

    少し点火時期の調整が必要だったが、非常に良くできたエンジン。スプリングで回転数の調整も簡単。 カスタムも手軽に出来る。

    Nice engine, easy to use, fast shipping, I made a steampunk tank with it, you could see it at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4l4UVwXZitM

    I love this little machine. You need to buy the upgrade, the others are for display but the upgrade is very nicely engineered. You need sewing machine oil, lubrication is done by you so don't forget. Fill the little brass fuel tank with two stroke mix, the engine has no circulating oil so a little in the fuel will keep the cylinder sweet. Open the fuel needle valve about two thirds of a turn, switch on the coil, and spin the wheel away from the cylinder. Mine usually goes on the second flick, experiment with fuel settings, you'll soon find out what works. You want the leanest setting that's compatible with the engine firing slow and steady. When correctly tuned the engine makes little smell or noise. I'm getting old and my workshop seems a long way from my bedroom, it's great to have an engine to run whilst I wait for the billy to boil.

    Nice model, it can be not so expensive, governor spring can be softer in order to down rpm, main bearings with too much clearance. Exhaust can be a straight pipe. BR VP
