In many circles of modeling, there is a shortage of good compression motors a working volume of 2.5 cm3. The only satisfactory engine KMD-2,5 for the last time so decreased that the head is forced to look for ways of providing the club good motors.
Alteration of good glow engines compression is associated not only with unjustified costs. This work is laborious and requires special skills. And if it fails, fails so hard produced, scarce and costly “Kalinka”. Therefore, we propose to go the way of alteration of the well-known “Rhythm”, a massive and cheap, using parts of the province. The result is a Microdrive, a displacement of slightly more than 3 cm3, which can be used in training and in competition models of aircraft, ships and vehicles of those classes, where the limitation of the cubic capacity exceed 2.5 cm3. In addition, this alteration is also interesting because it allows you to use a separate qualitative parts and units of engines, the use of which the production version is impossible or difficult. So, motors that “Rhythm” in most circles are not in working condition due to wear and pairs, and the quality of carters, and especially landing them the shaft on engines MARZ is not possible to operate these motors on purpose, but only in the form of blanks for rework.
For modifying to fit the “Rhythms” of any releases. The most important operation is the boring of the crankcase under the cylinder liner from the Regions. If you do not possess a boring machine, we recommend you to make a device that is described in the book by E. Gusev and M. Osipov, “a Manual for avtomodelistov”. At the same time with the boring butt seat for the flange of the sleeve. The rest of the Carter “Rhythm” without any changes, as all the details of the crankshaft and Zolotnik wall. Still need only counterbore the cooling jacket to the dimension of the sleeve from Marz. Here you can do the usual lathe. However, the operation must be performed very accurately — completely bored shirt sleeve needs to be pressed into or under heating the jacket to 90-100°.
