I need some help to ID a pair of never run Mac engines, all indications are MC 101 with straight output shafts and compression release's, the tag has a mod. # of 400171B on both engines, I would like to figure out a fair value and find a proper home for these , I have owners books, and a letter from Windways in Ca. signed Mike Turchen
I have several pictures available
Thanks, Mike Bruns Email brunsmspts@aol.com

Mike - when you say straight shaft are your talking a 3/4" crankshaft? Does it have a 3/16 keyway? and last question are the cranks drill and tapped? Pictures would be nice. What is the overall length of the crankshaft?

400171B .. I believe that is the McCulloch MC101 M/C engine that was used for paragliders and such. Sloper manifold and gas single pumper carb. Looks like the images below?? Can be used for karting by swapping out the crankshaft, and by adding carb/manifold of choice.... you will want to removed and plug the compression release, and removed the recoil starter too. With those changes, it should run will the other stock MC101, no problem.
