I've been flying a Bensen gyro since 1977 started with a 90 hp Drone engine,later went to the 532 rotax which I still have and fly. I have one of the last gyro kits that Bensen sold. I have started putting together. It is complete except for the rotor blades. I just completed rebuilding the 72 hp drone engine that I've had in my shop for years. I need a set of rotor blades that are in good shape. I have the hub already all I need is the blades. Can't wait to finish this baby so I can here that Mcculloch run. Thanks Tony

I have a 72 hp McCulloch Drone that ran before given to me 25 years ago -

Now I want to start it for display (will make a stand) -

But the donor kept the prop to make a clock !

So, anyone got a prop ?

I'm looking for a cylinder jug for a McCulloch 2-cyl. drone engine.
Also, a Tillotson carb, yc3a or yc1b.

Thanks!

I have a whole bunch of McCulloch 0-100-0 target drone 2 cycle engine parts left over from my gyro days (I went Bell 47) I have 3 or cases, about 15 to 20 cylinders, cranks, rods, mag parts - all just sitting in my back shed. Give me a call. I would like to see someone get some useage out of this stuff. Ray @ 661-209-0239 cell.

Does anyone know where I can get spare parts for a Mcculloch 2-stroke 4 cyl engine as fitted to a benson 8M gyro? I am based in the UK, and there doesn't appear to be any spares here.
Thanks.... Rik
