G231H Question
Will this engine fit in most gassers such as the Vario, and Predator? I was going to buy it from a friend, but he said it used to be in a JR Gasser, so I am not sure if it will fit in any other helis.. Any thoughts?

Ok Tom,

What is the difference in the G230 RC that the others will not run in the Vario?

I don't understand why the PUH engine wouldn't use a full circle crank if it is smoother. That doesn't make any sense to me. Can some explain this to me.

Maybe because it is lighter?

Curious about this full circle crank
Tom:

Was not able to see the full circle crank in your pictures. Guess its in the case and hard to see. However, that 230 RC is certainly heavier with the big fan on it and black case,.etc. I looked it up on the Zenoah website and its 0.3kg heavier than a G231 which is 10.5oz more.

Sort of explains why the Vario benzin machines are the heaviest gassers in the neighborhood of 14 to 15 lbs or so (that's what vario owners told me).

New pictures
Can you retake those pictures, maybe push in the close range button on the camera (flower symbol on mine) so it focuses up close better and maybe from the top down so I can see inside the case what you mean? Just to use a bright light an no flash so it doesn't bounce back into the pictures.

Thanks Tom!

Here is a pic of the RC style crank..

Clearly one can see the extra mass that is in a full circle crank.. NOt to mention how much better it stuffs the crank case(Added performance)

That isn't a stock crank, is it? That is aftermarket.

Wait a minute
Is this crank swappable with the stock crank in the 260? If it has a heavier counterweight, maybe we could just put this puppy in and make it all work better with the heavier piston? If so why didn't the engine manufacturers already think of that like the Hansons and Toxic Als?
