MUSA FV1A KW-OHV 7cc Vertical Single-cylinder Four-stroke Air-cooled Gasoline Engine Model for Water Plane and Tethered Boat Models
.Introduction: At the end of 2021, we teamed up with MUSA factory to launch and manufacture a brand new flathead single-cylinder gasoline engine model based on the “Whippet” engine designed by Edgar T. Westbury (ETW) in the 1960s. Many model engine enthusiasts and players praised it for its high-quality machining and excellent performance, making a lasting impression on many. In response to the strong demand from the players, in March 2023, we brought you an evolved version of ETW’s earlier work, based on the “Kittiwake” engine from the 1940s, redefined as the “RED DOG” engine.
.A Tribute to the Classic: The FV1A engine will evoke a retro nostalgia and resonance among more engine model enthusiasts and players, and attract widespread attention and discussion.
.Exquisite Appearance: This miniature vertical single-cylinder four-stroke engine features a unique and beautiful appearance, green + black color scheme, OHV valve train and compact structure. .Ingenious Design: The engine parts have original and very delicate geometric shapes. For the pushrod-operated overhead valve, it has a very fine V-shaped arrangement.
.Strong Power: With a long-stroke design and high torque output, the engine provides excellent power for water planes and rope boats.
.Cooling Method: The large area of cooling fins ensures good and sufficient air-cooling effect. An external water pump can be added later to work with the engine.
.Lubrication Method: Built-in oil pump, wet oil sump, independent lubrication system enables the engine to get better lubrication effect and extend service life.
.Ignition Method: Adopts the unique anti-overflow oiler and ignition breaker assembly (mechanical external ignition).
.Material Selection: The engine is made of high-quality metal materials, mainly aluminum alloy, brass, and steel.
.Processing Technology: The body is manufactured using CNC technology, while the cylinder head and middle cylinder may be cast. The crankshaft is made from one piece of material and subjected to hardening treatment. The custom-made metal steel piston ring has a surface that is anodized or electrophoretically colored, giving the engine a vintage industrial mechanical feel.
.Excellent Collection: The FV1A engine model is not only a highly collectible and visually appealing engine but also a perfect addition to any model exhibition. It also makes an excellent personalized gift for mechanical enthusiasts.
.Notes: Please note that the engine comes pre-assembled and tested and does not include a spark plug, ignition start accessories, or a fixed base. Please refer to the instruction manual for proper use to avoid damaging the machine. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

ENJOMOR Flathead Engine
What is flathead engine?
A flathead engine, also known as a sidevalve engine or valve-in-block engine is an internal combustion engine with its poppet valves contained within the engine block, instead of in the cylinder head, as in an overhead valve engine.
Flatheads were widely used internationally by automobile manufactures from the late 1890s until the mid-1950s but were replaced by more efficient overhead valve and overhead camshaft engines. They are currently experiencing a revival in low-revving aero-engines such as the D-Motor.
Tribute to the classics:
Taking the Whippet engine designed by Edgar T. Westbury (ETW) in 1963 as the prototype, combined with our design philosophy, we launched this brand-new flat-head engine (L-head engine). It is the simplest small engine in power equipment, but people will praise it for its good working condition.
Keep the height of the engine at the lowest level. Aesthetically, this gives the four-stroke engine a unique compact appearance. Side valve design, simple structure and not too heavy. The water circulation is cooled, and there is an independent lubrication system, so that the engine can run for a long time without paying attention.
Made of aluminum CNC finishing, the integrated crankshaft is hardened, and the surface is electrophoresed paint treatment, which will not fade for a long time, showing the retro industrial green texture of the engine. The characteristic design of carburetor and exhaust pipe, the performance will not be inferior to that of ohc/ohv engine.
This will be a very pleasant engine, with greater potential for upgrades, and easier to apply on RC scale model ships. Of course, it is also an ornamental desktop engine, one of the indispensable engine types in model exhibitions.
I believe its quality and performance will be impressive, this is an interesting experience. It is a perfect supplement for engine model enthusiasts and collectors, and it is also an excellent personalized gift for mechanical enthusiasts.
The engine comes with a spark plug, not including the engine base and igniter. Any questions about the engine, please feel free to contact us. Improper operation with the instructions helps avoid damage to the machine.
