    RE: OS 60 FP Needle Valve

    How about contacting OS directly? They may have a needle from one of their other engines that will fit. There's always eBay. I just bought two C/L venturis and needle valves/spray bars for my old Enya R/C .19 VI 4006s on eBay. How about a Perry carb?

    Good luck.

    Yes and it will fit the 60FP perfectly.

    RE: OS 60 FP Needle Valve

    Is this a rear needle engine like the 46FX?

    The .60fp was available in both versions.

    RE: OS 60 FP Needle Valve

    I don't know what you can do, the carbs and spare parts for them have been DISCONTINUED[:@] that really stinks because I have some .60fp's also.

    I do know that any carbs from the 40-46 FX, SF, and probably the AX 46 will bolt right on to your engine, and they are better two-needle designs.

    You can also use this spraybar in your carb and convert to rear needle. Almost any needle valve assy will work then.

    RE: OS 60 FP Needle Valve

    I sent an e-mail to petes RC and here what he sent back.


    Hi Verne,

    There are no replacements available at this time, and nothing that will interchange.
    I am working on a conversion assembly but it won't be ready for a while yet.
    If you are interested I will place you into the parts wanted file and let you know when it is available.
    The only other alternative is I do have some complete carbs at 38.00 ea.

    Let me know
    Thanks
    Pete

    RC dude 7.

    I'm going to give the Spraybar a try.

    thank you

    RE: OS 60 FP Needle Valve

    Parts for the FP-series of engines have been out of stock for quite a while. The engines have been out of production for well over a decade. O.S. typically has parts available for five years after an engine has been discontinued. The don't keep them longer than that because parts demand becomes so low that it's not even economical to take a year's worth of orders and then make parts to fill those orders. Even very-popular engines wind up with about zero demand for parts when the they've been discontinued for five or more years.
