Note that a small lathe & mill are required to machine this engine. The Type B is a neatly styled inverted engine that was designed to look & be built like something that could have been made years ago. It uses an over-hung flywheel crankshaft that sits above a slanted finned, air-cooled cylinder. This engine can run as a hit & miss, (or by simply locking a governor screw), it can run as a throttler engine. It can also run in either direction.
This engine uses high tension spark ignition & runs off regular gasoline by using a simple RMC vapor carburetor. The engine can also be easily set up for other gas or liquid fuels.

Compared to other gas engine kits, this kit is fairly simple since the engine does not have any gears, cams, push rods, etc. Care should still be taken to machine the few parts this engine does have and a small lathe & mill & standard tools will be needed to machine the castings & make parts for this engine.Castings clean up easily with an air die grinder, carbide burr & files. Note that the base casting has mounting bosses placed conveniently on it, making it ideal for "free-lance" engine builders to make their own designs & engine creations out of if wanted.
