  Too late tonight to check, but when I get home from work tomorrow, I think I have several, and will check up on it. Stay tuned!
  They say Stallion right on the side of the crank case, don't they?

Yes, they do. I have a bunch of them.

Great sport engines, but don't push them too hard or you'll be hunting for a new crankshaft.

Also, if you find one missing the thrust washer, the K&B sportster 20/28  washer fits it perfectly.

Thanks for the info. I fly sport so I normally don't run my engines hard. I use extra castor in my fuel also.

One is marked "Stallion" and the other "Torpedo"...but I have no clue what other changes may be.

Looking at it from the prop side, the Stallion exhaust on the right side.
Don't know about the Torpedo.

     No, when looking at it from the prop side (front) the Stallion is on the left side, and the Torpedo, especially if it's a green head, is on the right side.  Whenever discussing left or right of any vehicle,( airplane, car,motor scooter, etc.) always make the reference as if you are seated in or on the vehicle in the operators position! That helps avoid confusion as long as everyone is thinking along the same line.

Well I guess memory fades with age. I could have swore that was a stallion I had mounted on a Nemesis 2 style combat plane with a huge suction tank inside the wingwhen I was in Jr high.
The exhaust spit straight up into me and my brothers faces.
Makes me wonder what else I am remembering wrong.

Maybe my memory is just fine. Tomorrow I'm going to be at my Dad's house and I'm going to find that engine and take a picture of it and post it and we will see. I know we also had a greenhead at that time and maybe we had both on that plane. Maybe the Old man remembers more than me.

   I have an old combat model hanging in my garage, and it has a Torpedo .35 in it with a big, bell shaped venturi and a bigger prop drive washer, and the exhaust is pointing up (left side exhaust.) It is not a Stallion nor a green head. I'll bet those were fun to start at the beginning of a match or to refuel and hot start during a match!

You see some torps with the needle on the exhaust side.  Better way is to reverse the nva so your hand isn't in the exhaust. A bit awkward on profiles but nice on full fuse planes. My 29s greenhead was purchased for an inverted mount and to point the exhaust to the outside of the circle.

   Hi Bob;
  Yes it does. If you still have the email and photos I sent you a couple of weeks ago, check those out.

The Stallion was a cheaper version of the K&B Torpedo engines. It was so they could compete with the much cheaper McCoy engines.  You got what you paid for.  D>K

I may be wrong, but I  think the Stallions had a black head. I do remember them being very cheap, like a McCoy, compared to a Torpedo or a green head. H^^

I gree, the Stallion .35 was produced to compete in the Fox .35 vs McCoy Redhead battles of the late 60s/early 70,.
Mine had a shiny case, Dad said it was tumble polished in a big batch before final machining.
Tolerances for production were loosened up so fewer parts got rejected, and engines tended to be loose instead of tight.
Good castor fuel helped with piston /cyl just like Fox and McCoy. Flew the cap out of mine- but my Dad knew not to wind it up like a Cox .049. That killed a lot of engines, move up from 1/2A and run the loop scavenged .35s...
