I now have two R3M's - one better than the one, but both needing parts. The cost of these seems out of all proportion to the value of the engine - a reconditioned Magneto £160! So simple question, before I do the easy option of selling them on ebay - once restored and working, is it worth the effort? Are they good reliable engines, or just a nostalgia trip to a bye-gone age age of unreliability, and inefficiency. Just for the magneto - that over a £100 per horsepower! So scrap them or restore them?
