    RE: ASP/MAGNUM FS400AR Rebuild/Overhaul

    And what would you do for the flange at the end of the tube?
    Use a tapered cone to start a small flare, then slip it into the nut and head and just start working it till it flanges out enough.

    Tom, what drawing is that? I don't know of an exploded view with red on it?
    PDF attached.

    Olivier, that is a great idea and I am going to do that when I open up my engine.

    Well I can say that if the case hardening is too hard I have a bottle of this good cleaner that will erase the hardness.
    What was the stuff you used on your radial??

    jaav, hope i dont sound stupid but did you thin it with water? I tried putting one of your old link pins in my phosphoric acid w/o thinning it. same thing happened... lots of holes and craters in the surface. I guess either way, the acid concentration was too high. does it say any % on the bottle?

    Thanks jaav.

    Well, it certainly does not sound like it is dangerous stuff. They claim it is biodegradable and environmentally safe. Perhaps as Rev said, the dilution ratio with water is critical.

    http://www.ictproducts.net/product_i...dissolver.html

    I have used and highly recommend Evapo-Rust. No mixing is necessary, use it straight out of the bottle. I have left engine parts in it overnight and nothing bad has ever happened.

    Life is funny, I have a "natural" metal finish on mine, but would prefer a grey paint one (like a Corsair engine) too late to swap with you now )))

    See, I have the best of both worlds. A natural finished one (Planet Hobby) and a jaavs ASP one that I am completely overhauling.

    Currently thinking a a nice Logo to put on the front. @Tom How did you fix it to the case? Cut in small threads or rivet it?

    I threaded the holes and use screws. I can change back to the ASP badge when I want too.

    I can't remember right now which I used, either 0-80 or 00-90 threads.

    I love the laminated prop Jim! Hope it is salvageable?

    Your new 'radial' sounds amazingly similar to the chainsaws the tree trimmers use around my area.

    And what was that big bug scurrying across the screen? [X(]

    RE: ASP/MAGNUM FS400AR Rebuild/Overhaul

    I has a haul!

    Got my bearings from a seller in Germany, and spare ASP parts from Just Engines in England.



    I thought all the bearings were going to be German made, but they are not.

    One has no ID at all.

    One has the part number but no country ID.

    One is made in Germany.

    One is made in Italy.

    One is made in Portugal.

    Hey Patxipt, do I have to worry about the bearing made in Portugal?

    Tom, I've been following your re-build for a while now. Good work! But with all the investment you made, wouldn't you have $ for an EVO or similar ? I'm NOT putting down this engine as I have one also, but if I had the money, would of bought a better quality brand. Just a thought V.

    Hi vasek,

    I would love to have an Evo radial. However I am retired due to disability and on a small fixed pension so hobby dollars are few and far between.

    RE: ASP/MAGNUM FS400AR Rebuild/Overhaul

    This brings up something else. I get my memories confused sometimes. I think I posted in here recently that my engine was a 1996 model. Can't be, as I did not buy this in 1996. I believe I got it in 2006, as that is when my first run video is from. I have only had it for six years, not sixteen. I apologize for any confusion I may have caused (besides my own!).

    Hi Tom, sorry if my post came across this way, I didn't mean it like that! I am in the same boat, just wishing I had money to get a better built radial. Just seeing you ordering parts from all over the world seems pricey... maybe it's not as bad as I've imagined and I can see you're enjoying your re-build and that's the important part. Enjoy! V.

    RE: ASP/MAGNUM FS400AR Rebuild/Overhaul

    Working for an engine mfr its clear to us that people all over are struggling a bit. Fortunately the current exhange rates make our engines quite favourable on price against the japanese engines. Also our engines are used in larger scale models and so we are less effected by electric conversions. Still, times are tough for everyone at the moment i think. Its a shame as there are new engines i would love to produce but at the moment we cant justify the R&D

    Ok guys..Have a look at our flying field. Perfect! Once the clouds cleared it was unbearable heat and humidity. And how I removed the UC from my Decathalon.
