    os 55 ax carburetor

    Had a mid air a couple of weeks ago, and realized that the carburetor neck was cracked and the retaining screws had fallen off. A small crack is also seen in the crank, where the carb is attached.
    Is there any way to fix this or should I replace the engine ? What size / type are the retaining screws ? Size mentioned on carb specs is 3.5 x 5 mm. Could not find any such screws on Tower hobbies OS parts list.

    Thanks

    RE: os 55 ax carburetor

    If the carb has the crack, replace the carb body.  If the engine is cracked, you may need to replace the crankcase.

    This screw will work:

    OSMG3840   25081700 CARB SCREW #4D4C2H    US$2.29

    These parts can be ordered through any hobby retailer who sells O.S. Max engines and accessories.
