Vintage Model Boat Engine


Recommended Posts

I just found this for sale locally and collected it last night. I'm sure at least one of you would be interested in taking a look and besides, it's nice to share...:default_eusa_dance:

I don't know why the middle pic is upside down.




At 35cc it's too big for my model boat but let's not get picky about reasons to buy stuff. The guy is an amateur model boat builder; his workshop looks a bit like grendel's and his models look of equal standard! :default_smiley-angelic002: 

He bought this engine new in 1978 and has never started it. So far I have found out little about it. It's a KK35 two stroke which was imported from India as a small industrial engine and converted for model boat use. This one has the optional centrifugal clutch and 6v coil for generating power for lights, horn etc. There is an exhaust too.

Of course if anyone knows more I would be interested to hear about it.
