Anybody remember DC model aero engines

Anybody remember Davis Charlton Diesel model aero engines made in IOM with their compression screws, and quick start spring. Oh many memories of hurt fingers!!! :) Pocket money and bob-a-job money saved for many months if not years to be able to buy one of these and put it on a control line model, or 'free flight' with burning timer fuse - remember those? :) The noise from these DC engines was astronomical

Try starting this with your finger Noel;-


I kept all the engines I bought from the time of about 9 years old, I still have some of the tools from back then- used to work on trains now, sadly never kept some of the earlier planes, still have a few Spitfires, a Tucan and a Bobcat, which this engine is from. The plane has hung from the ceiling of the workshop for the last 20 years!!
