Default O.F 25 F

I recently bought a bunch of RC parts from a guy who was selling out and found a brand new in the box O.S. 25F ABC. I was wondering about the type of fuel to use and how it would compare power wise to the modern 25s'. The only instructions that I have with it are for the 2b, 2ca,2cb,2cb-d,etc. "automatic carburettors"

It's equal to most modern .25's, the design is very much the same. The engine is an ABN design though, don't be fooled by the ABC designation and use 22% CASTOR OIL

What is abn? And I usually use Bryons 15 % nitro and 18% oil but I think they use a synthetic/castor blend.

ABN = High silicon Aluminum piston running in a Nickle plated brass liner. Not as durable as a high silicon aluminum piston running in a chromed brass liner.

Will the 15/18 Bryons be O.K.? I ran it today on my Combat and she runs great. Better than any of my newer 25s'. Swings a 9-5 great. I never lean it out all the way and I probably won't. My combat plane pulls alot of Gs' and will cut most of my engines back if leaned out to the max. I run them all rich and deal with the clean up. I got a kick out of the carb instructions when they called the carb an "automatic" because it wasn't an air bleed.

18% oil content would the the minimum. You should also have a significant part of the oil mix be castor oil. Non-ringed engines like castor as a major part of the oil mix.
