Trevor Bright (Sydney, AU)
First HM-01

This is my first model engine. It is easy to be critical, that's not my intention. Slightly disappointed, several issues... 1. The high-tension spark plug lead was too short for the sled. I needed to cut and join a section in the middle, under the sled. 2. The auto centering shim on the governor flywheel did not grip the crankshaft. I needed to pack the shim to gain enough pressure to finally grip the shaft. 3. The glass oil cup for the piston leaks at the joint to the block. It needs a seal. I fixed it with thread tape. 4. The crankshaft counterbalance weights were poorly finish. They needed fine filing to remove excess metal from the edge. It is running and a joy to watch. As I say this is my first model engine, maybe these issues are normal...? Trevor.

Very nice Base and Fuel Tank!!

Engine base is made of very hard wood.
Looks great.
Box lid closes well.
Fuel tank looks good and I believe the fuel lid is made of lost wax.

Well Made, Worth the Money!!

Very nicely constructed Skid, Battery Box and Fuel Tank, all three are quality items, they were packed well and arrived safely! Definitely worth purchasing if you purchase the HM-01. 100% worth the money!!

Beautiful addition to HM-01! I might get some for other engines too!

Beautifully made skid, ignition box, and fuel tank. This tank is bigger than the ones on some of my other engines and looks wonderful with the HM-01. Easy to assemble the engine and route the wiring for a clean look!
