    I would just copy some existing plane for sizes and airfoil. Hey wasn't I just talking to you a minute ago?

    It looks quite interesting. The motor could be attached to a mount made from angle aluminum. Looks like the needle will stick up into the prop, and the pipe straightened out, and the exit hole...

    So the Siriro has an integral slide carb. I like the bottom mount. It would be quite simple to mount, even with a cowl. Much better than the regular beam mounts. I wonder who makes them, if it is...

    I think the K&B one did not work so well. The water cooled one had better machining and a closer tolerance and then would seize up from heat. But ya, a gimmick for sure, and heavy.

    Some other brand will likely fit, or be close. Maybe a used one from ebay or whatever. The Supertiger ones always break there, I have got a few used .40s like that. Some even have the back casting...

    I had/have one for an inboard 3.5 K&B. I think I used a water cooled one on a Picco a long time ago. Boats are kind of an on off button. I should run one again, it's been almost 30 years.

    Looks like something to try on a bigger motor. The Norvels have a kind of wonky seal on the exhaust. There would be less suction in the carb, as the hole stays the same diameter, but then I guess...

    Yep. I don't see a problem with it. Years ago the mufflers were pretty bad, and they would overheat likely because of undersized holes in the muffler. I know they sucked power, but don't have...

    Sometimes you can use a backplate from something else that is the same diameter, like an ASP or whatever, and then make a step nut for the front. A counterbore on the prop is needed. I think Toki...

    The back landing gear could just be put at the leading edge of the wing location. That would make a tail dragger. I have done that many times. Real men don't use a landing gear.

    Your Sportster .20 sounds about the same as an LA .25, maybe a bit less, likely because of the size. We have to use 10% nitro and a MA 8-6 for racing them. Mine does about 15,500 rpm like that, and...

    The very narrow cylinders were early. About the 1960s. I bought new ones that were slightly smaller around the port in the early to late 1970s, and the newer ones were solid all the way up, and...

    The F2A motors only need to be timed for 1 KM, and that is over in 9 laps or maybe 13 seconds. A few laps to get going and then there is a shutoff to kill it. If it is too lean, then the shutoff...

    I have one with an iron piston too. They will vibrate a bit more than an ABC or aluminum ringed one if revved high. That is just the nature of the beast. The old Fox .35s were nasty for vibrating, I...

    Maybe the carb was opened up which makes it more sensitive. 1/8" is about the max that I found to work. Maybe the tank is back too far. Maybe the clunk line is leaky, detached or pushed forward...

    I just have one used one. It does not seem to go well, or hold a setting. They were a direct copy of the Norvel pretty much. I think the casting looks a bit nicer really, just maybe material...
