Yeah stock muffler. I also didn't touch a screw on the carb. I'll run it for awhile then I'll mess with adjusting the mixure. What can did you buy?

Re: New DL-55 and DL-111

Quick question:

Does the DL55 and the DL111 have "DL55" and "DL111" cast onto the head or the crankcase?

Or did they bore out the DL50 heads without changing the casting?

In other words; what external differences are there between the DL100 and the DL111 if you don't want to take the heads off to measure the bore/stroke?

Thanks,

The castings are completely new. The jugs have DLE cast into them, the crankcases have DLE 55 and 111 cast into them and the crankcases are also serial numbered. The DL 50 and 100 were not numbered.

Re: New DL-55 and DL-111

I have an old old ZDZ60RV on a CA model extra 31%, it weighs around 18 lbs, its spinning a 24x10 prop at 6200RPMs, by the numbers I have read from people who posted here, I assume I can safely remove the ZDZ60 and put a DLE55, loose a pound of weight and gain more power than what I have now, do I have it right??
Thanks in advance.

Re: New DL-55 and DL-111

17 lb. plane would be fodder for the DLE55 but the 24x10 is to much for either engine.

I thought maybe that's where you got it. I talked to Ron about it the other day. Sounds like I better get one of those cridders. As soon as I hear how he's doing with my 50HP.................

Re: New DL-55 and DL-111

I just want to confirm that the DLE 55 has the same mounting dimensions as the DA 50 and DL 50. Sorry if this has already been asked.

Thanks!

I thought the DA 50 and the DL 50 had the exact same mounting dimensions? Guess not. How different are they?
