    Default Hamilcar Mk. X

    I was wondering if anybody had any information on the Hamilcar Mk X. I have a copy of
    AP4111A Volume 1 Power Plant for Hamilcar Mk. X, and until I found this I had always thought the Hamilcar was always a glider.

    I have found notes about the Mk.X on wikipedia but wondered if anybody else knew anything about it.

    Thanks for that.

    The notes are quite interesting with the usual information on removing and installing the engine, along with servicing and description.

    The notes came with notes for the Cheetah XV, the Perseus XIIc, Twin Wasp C3 &C4 (accessory manual), and various other aircraft/engine manuals.
