Many thanks i'm quite unsure what to do as i said initially i was really oriented to EME but after hearing of rod and bearing problems... As i said i don't have much gas engine experience since i'm still with my first one which is a DLE-55.

What attract me of EME 60 is the price and performance over the DLE-61 but if i have to spent 100 less now and after regret it because i will spend them to repair the engine or to buy a new plane for a engine failure...

The new ones are fine. Don't let old news ruin your day. BTW, be ready to take your new DLE apart to replace the reeds, and re surface the Reed block!

The DLE 61 runs great out of the box, no need to do any mods.

funboy, you just made a great statement about old news then you contradicted yourself when referencing a DLE. None of my newer DLE engines have required any reed work and this includes a 35, 55, 61 and 85. They were all disassembled, inspected and looked just fine out of the box. Heck, my older DLE's required very little if any work and two of those engines just completed their 6th season.

Ok, in was thinking 120 and 222. My bad. I've got a couple 55's. One is fine, one not so much.

I am still running my EME 60, one of the first batch of engines that Milehigh got in.
No problems at all been one of the most reliable engines I have.But I run Redline at 32:1 and a Xora 23-8 laminate too.I can't say that about the other three china engines I have or the two that are made in Tiwan.
