Hi Bob,

What Part/parts do you need....

I can check my local Hobby shops, two of them have boxes of OS parts.

They don't have a list it is the old look and see system.

I have also my own personal parts box that is used to keep my fleet of old
engines in the air.

Hey John,


Thanks for your help, in short all I really
need is a Push Rod tube.

However since I would have to tear down the
engine head to install. I was wanting also,

Screw set OS # 45913000

Lifters (2) #45564000

Push Rod tubes (2) #44066100

Push Rods (2) #44066000

How's that for a list

Bob

Hi Bob,

Check the website of this Canadian retailer:

http://hobbyhobby.com/store/category...ax/page77.html

Use the search feature, inputing the part number.

I know they have this one:

OS Max - OSMG7454
44066100 Pushrod Cover Assembly FS-70 Surpass
$13.99

You may have a good reason to avoid shopping at Tower, but they do have all of those part numbers in stock as of July 22.

I have a 1983 O.S. FS-120 ( before Surpass ) the engine that looks like a Saito, and I've talked to both these people.

http://peteshobbies.com/
http://www.paulsmodelsupply.com/


I talked to Paul over the phone and he taught me to make a brass bearing for my rocker arms because the my particular engine used teflon washers as a shim. The engine model I have is the only one that has it. It was impossible to find the correct stock replacement shims, so he explained to me how to find some small brass washers, hand sand and polish them down to .002-.001 of an inch thickness, install them and check that they don't bind and vala!

I ran the engine all last summer with no problems. Call them and see what they can do for you.

Hope it helps, Merry Christmas!

Pete

Anyone needing four stroke parts should conact Noel Jenson. He has many OS, Saito and Enya parts and he also does reasonably priced machine shop work. Have used Noel now for about 7 years and have never had a problem. His email is: nubs@mybluelight.com
