WOW

Strengths: 
The Torque was found to be very high with very little change with size and Pitch of Prop. Good tick over down to 2,000RPM with an APC 11" x 6" up front. Very clean oil that is exhausted after running in. .
Weaknesses: 
Strange feeling when first turned over by hand starting until run in then it's a matter of a couple flicks after a nice wet prime. A little oil comes from the front bearing but so what it shows that oil is getting through. . .
Overall: 
Having started using model motors from the 50s up to today’s marvels both 2 and 4 stroke I was somewhat taken back with my very first RCV 58 CD motor. It had this strange feel to it when the shaft was turned and not much compression as you would normally get with a motor of similar size 4 stroke and I could see why then that RCV recommend the use of an electric starter to get these motor fired up. The motor was mounted in the bearers and plumbed up with the pressure nipple on the muffler feeding the tank and a 11” x 6 “ APC prop up front. On turning the prop over to give her a prime it took no effort to turn it over with the Chicken Stick to get the fuel up to the Carbie and into the workings but still very little resistance to compression.
