    Did CMB make 5 port .90 engines?

    Well its more than curiosity..... I inherited a swag of old engine bits and noticed something strange..... One engine was an original CMB 90 EVO (first of the black cases with gold head and carb part of the engine backplate)... I just peeked into the exhaust port and thought the liner didnt...

    Carb Bore

    Well guess who just took delivery of a nice new MAC 3.5 outboard :) So I noticed the carb bore is way smaller than a normal 3.5.... Now I would assume a slightly smaller carb would help in being able to throttle the engine but how much smaller is ideal? I am not second guessing Andy and I am...

    K&B - Any update on production?

    Well as the topic says..... Does anyone know how committed K&B are to making outboard engines??? Maybe some timelines and quantities may help. I dont think any of that first batch of 21s made it to OZ and I heard 45s were on the way but thats about it.....

    disc vs drum

    For those who didnt go into the CMB 80 needle thread the topic sorta strayed to induction issues with the CMB especially relating to disc clearances. Now the way I was taught was that the disc engines SHOULD be better for lots of reasons. Firstly the area inside the drum is added to the...

    MAC 67 and OS drum possible????

    Yes it seems a crazy idea but it would solve a problem for me. I am building a Chisel nose 1/8 scale and I positioned the engine last night and found to my dismay the carb sits above the deck line and out in the open. I am wondering if it is possible to fit the OS drum rotor to the MAC? I do...
