    Default WHAT ENGINE IS IT?

    Hi, I'm new to hovercrafting. Just acquired this eagle hull to repair and renovate but I have no idea what engine this is, nor did the guy I bought it from. Can anyone help with identification please and any other info to get me up and started.

    Thanks

    John

    It's a Hirth flat 4. http://www.hirth-engines.de/english/

    We had a bit of a discussion about it a couple of weeks ago when it appeared on ebay- http://hovercraft.org.uk/FUDforum2/i...hp?t=msg&th=24 10&start=0&S=a84577683b13bc0fd0f344f36896ef2f

    Dan Newton my be able to help a bit as Tony Conner isn't on this board- come to that Baz or John Rees may have some info- I'm sure someone from the Lynx lot will be along soon.



    Nice to have another taff on board!

    It's a Lynx hull isn't it?



    The OP probably thought it was an Eagle hull because it has got K&M Products stickers on it.



    Question to the OP. Did you get a lift engine with it?

    Quick question. We now have 2 taffs on the board and neither actually live in Wales. Is it that bad in your homeland??
