Hi,
I have a magnum XLS 40 glow engine,
I havnt used it for around 2 years... I took it apart cleaned it, oiled it and once I gathered it together with fresh Nitro fuel its not starting...
can anyone help me please???
Glow plug is charged and the glow is working ive tested it.
ive put fresh fuel... still nothing
it tries to start but just wont kick in.
I tried heating the head to give some heat and still no luck...
I pimed it many times, and still no luck
I emptied the fuel from the engine once I over primed it and tried again and still no luck
it tries to start but it wont.
I tried turning it with a 12v starter but the only result I get is the spinner and prop flying off... so I am starting it by hand and since then ive had no problems of the prop flying off..
ive looked over it many times to see if there is a gap or leak and I have no gaps or leaks. not in the engine nor in the fuel lines
ive tried playing with he needle and had no luck too.
don't get me wrong, it wants to start but it wont. before you know it my glow plug dies of battery. so I have to charge it up again and wait 4 hours to do this all again.
ive spent almost 1.5L of nitro for nothing.
ive realized something... in regards to the cylinder head. if I unscrew it I can rotate the prop easily around the shaf. once I screw on the cylinder head there is a funny sound each time the Piston hit TDC and its quite hard to turn it again theres a funny sound - tick tick sound. I thought maybe that is the problem I don't have any solutions to it....
in regards to the carby ive cleaned it and put it back on properly.... the thing just wont start!!
can any one help me?
King regards
Joseph

Joseph, you need to move this question to the pertinent area of glow engines, not RC jets. Maybe you will get a better response there.

I would like the paint code, so I can go to my local car auto parts store, to mix up some touch up?

Ahh.. The actual paint code of the color. Sorry.

Email Dirk, he might be able to get that for you. Best thing though is to have it color matched at a auto paint shop.

Just received my Blue Angels scheme T-1 today. The packing job and out of box quality was awesome, exceeded my expectations. How do you remove the canopy. Mine is on pretty good and there are no visible latches?

No latch, Magnetic.. It slides forward, just pull it.

Hi Guys,

I am happy to hear we have more and more pilots enjoying their T-1's. Well, it has finally paid off with the factory moving to a larger facility as production has been improving. I temporarily opened the website to accept T-1 orders as the factory has given me a larger allocation for the next build cycle. I have made contact with everyone on the waiting list, so for those that snooze, they will lose their place, SO it is now free game for anyone to place an order. We are currently at a 6-8 week build, paint, polish, package and ship time frame. As soon as I fill the next allocation, I will turn off the website orders until this cycle is completed. Also check out the website as we added a complete Monster scheme of colors and they are off the hook!!

Keep the pictures and video's coming, they never get boring!!

Cheers,

Dirk

I got my RW scheme T1 today. The packing was excellent, no damage to any of the parts. Regarding the paint though, I've got bubble wrap markings all over the paint, it looks like they wrapped it before the paint completely dried. I tried buffing it out with a micro fiber cloth, but no luck. What a shame, the paint would have looked so awesome with out the bubble wrap markings. Has any one else had this happen, if so, are there any tricks to getting these marks off the paint? Thanks. -Tom

Hi Tom

The markings are not permanent. This happens on a lot of models due the coating on the bubble wrap. You can use a wax spray cleaner/polish and it should come off.

Agreed, I tried to polish them, but the more it's out and flying the more they disappear. Enjoy, it's a fantastic aircraft.

I'm installing a K140 and when dry fitting I noticed the bulk head that supports the rear of the turbine is too small to accommodate the 140's diameter, it looks like maybe by a 1/4 inch. For those of you who are running a K140 did you just grind down the bulk head? If so, did you reinforce it after grinding it down? Thanks for the help. -Tom
