    The Brodak 15 is a plain bearing engine, and quite good.

    Modern 15's are probably more power than the kits call for, but you don't have to use all the power.

    Leroy,

    It's best not to totally dismantle your engines - unless it is essential to do so.

    Hi Davey,

    Yes the overflow can go through the top, but there is very little to support it. There are external braces that can be fitted, but look rubbish, or you can turn the overflow through 90...

    Steve,

    Like you the idea of an Aussie design really appeals. The Stiletto at 34" is about what I'd use for a 1.5, in fact mine has a Tyro in it. I'd increase it to 125% making it 42.5" and...
