Zenoah Engine Questions
I am getting into the gasser thing. I have an older Xcell 1005 with Bergan frames and a Kalt KG22 engine. Is this basically a Zenoah G23? What are the major differences? What is the difference between a G23 and a 231? Would a Zenoah 270RC fit in this machine? Are there any mods that the KG22 engine would benefit from? Also wondering about carbs. Mine has a Walbro WA 197 on it. Will this carb be ok or is there a better choice? Hope someone can clear things up for me.

Thanks a million.

Why do I feel like deja vu? Didn't we already answer this somewhere?
In any case, you can get either a G231 motor for your 1005, or a G26 or larger, but you cannot use the RC format motors, whether that being the 240, 270 or the 290.

The G231 and G26 series motors come with 643 carbs, larger motors are upgraded by swapping cylinders and pistons. The 643 carb is a bigger bore than the 197 and will make about 10% more power (but that doesn't equate to head speed, as you need 30% more power to spin the rotor 10% faster).

Hope that helps,

Thanks Raja,

I searched all over on here with no luck. I think I am just going to opt for a 231 since the g23 engines have a great track record of overheating. I talked with Toxic Al and he is going to help me get things going in the right dirrection. Thanks for the help.

No worries Bohnhead
I just did a search on my posts and realized where I saw this before:

In any case, I'm sure Al will take great care of you and you'll have a much more powerful engine than that Kalt motor.

Enjoy!
