    I posted a response yesterday but I will again. I shouldn't think that simply removing the head and back plate would affect the warranty. I needed to see what the cause of the problem was. If the...

    I don't think that the spark plugs will clear the cowl. It may require cutting holes for the spark plugs and plug caps.

    I did check with Horizon Hobby and it appears the repair costs would be at least as much or more that purchasing a new DLE 55RA. It seems a shame to me that one can't purchase parts and repair these...
