Hello... the Paul Landels (Just Engines) well-traveled shoe box has arrived again.! The contents are an M.V.V.S 40 and 49 with quiet silencer and Davis Diesel Conversions. M.V.V.S. have been producing quality engines since the early fifties. Both these motors can be converted to side or rear exhaust by simply removing the head and liner cylinder assembly and re-locating them to their respective new positions. Not advisable to do with a used motor however.

Both engines have had about 1 1/2 hours running time each, so I would expect a slight increase in performance after about 3 hours. These motors even managed to impress the hardened single minded Glow users in my clubs, with their ease of use, quietness and high power output.
