    Older 'Top' brand and picco nitro engines

    Not sure if the right place, but I was given 3 nitro engines the other day.

    One has top brand stickers on it, came with a 4wd chassis and centre diff. 3.5cc, has made in Italy cast into the crank case.

    The other looks like the exact same block (missing stickers) but smaller square head and different carb.

    The third is a water cooled head picco. Said to be an outboard...?

    That's about as much info as I have.

    I couldn't find any info on either brands, so they must be quite old.

    Can I just measure the piston and bearings dimensions and match up one that way? Or do they have to be brand specific?


    I'll put up some pics when I can.
