This is the FS-91II Surpass 4-Stroke Engine.|
This engine does not use a choke valve OR use a return fuel line to the tank.
THERE ARE NO TOOLS OR EXTRA NEEDLE VALVE AS STATED IN THE INSTRUCTIONS.
New rear-mounted, updraft 60P Carb, Intake Manifold, and Coverplate.
Helix gear-driven camshaft supported by ball bearings.
No longer utilizes a choke valve
Grease-packed twin-sealed corrosion-resistant rear ball bearing.
Two Year Warranty
One Assembled Engine w/Carburetor.
One type #F Glow Plug.
One Muffler w/Manifold.
One Set of Instructions and Decal.
(Wrenches, Choke Valve Extension, and Mounting Template Are No
Longer Included per O.S.)
Fuel: 5%-15% nitromethane with 18% lubricant. Synthetic, castor, or
a synthetic/castor blend may be used.
NOTE: Certain four-cycle fuels cannot be used due to low oil content.
However, SOME four-cycle fuels such as the Wildcat 4-Cycle 15%
(CATP9109) may be used because it has 18% oil content.
When choosing fuels for this engine, the modeler must be sure to
select a fuel with at least a 18% lubricant content.

Low Speed: 2.5 turns out from fully closed with the
throttle fully closed
A fuel tank of approximately 300cc capacity is suggested. This allows
up to 12-13 minutes flying time.
Some Differences Between 4-Stroke and 2-Stroke Engines;
4-Strokes are Quieter.
4-Strokes get Better Fuel Economy.
2-Strokes Generate More RPM (11,000-13,000 RPM with Prop
while 4-Strokes rev to around 9,500 RPM)
4-Strokes generate much more Torque and will Swing a larger Prop.
4-Strokes have a realistic Sound; like a Real Aircraft Engine.
OS no longer includes the gauges, tools, and choke valve extension.
The new Surpass engines (Version II and III) have more power than
their predecessors and also have more corrosion prevention
on the inside of the crankcases.
Although it is cost prohibitive, you can convert this to the pump
version using the following items:
