    What I often do is make a hole clear through the large diameter part of the prop hub, and then use a Phillips screwdriver through the hole to tighten the prop hub. And yes, knurling the face of the...

    Sorry, but I just don't understand. The part you are looking for costs $27.95 new plus shipping. I offered you a complete engine with the part you need for only 20 bucks. What gives?

    Standard right hand threads. I would probably remove the prop hub and check things out. You might have to heat it a bit to get it started unscrewing, but Don't get crazy with the heat as there is a...

    I think you are going to be disappointed with your project. The engine is just too small, and also, makes its meager horsepower at high rpms. It will need a very small prop because the engine only...

    You are absolutely correct. In the past I have been concerned when people wanted to modify the Gas/Glow mix because as created, it has about 33% methanol, which is enough to keep the glow plug lit...

    Well it should, as long as the carb will richen up enough for the Gas/Glow mix. The Gas/Glow mix provides for around 32:1 oil though, so you would need to add some oil to it because they say "Do not...
