MP Jet .060 cc Classic Diesel Retro

The MP Jet .040 is a modern retro design of a long stroke side valve diesel manufactured in the Czech Republic. It is designed to be similar by specifications and appearance to small model diesels of the early to late 1940's. Thanks to these features the engine is easy starting, smooth running, quiet and user friendly with loads of low end torque.

The future plans for this little gem is to fit it with a good RC throttle and fly it in a vintage air-frame such as the Tomboy.

Observations visual material by YouTube Channel valic000:
Here we have a replica of a well known Letmo 2,5 diesel made by the famous Czech model engine designer Josef Pfeffer. He made so many lovely and quality engines in the past in my home country. I can only say about MP Jet engine...very well made and with perfect finish and fits. I got a filled in guarantee card when I bought some years ago a 2,5 cc diesel from E-bay and that was a very nice runner. I must quit collecting as, I have all ready too many engines at this moment.... but this one was not expensive and free shipping and with extra tank and also prop...so I give myself a "green light"... for just this one last time....somewhere I will find a small space for him. I can highly recommend MP jet diesels. Great engines! Thanks for watching.
