RE: XOAR 23X10 DA-50????????

It will run it but that really is too much prop. If you use it run the engine like you would a loaded truck climbing a hill. Back off on the throttle to keep the heat down. Don't do long power...

RE: Cleaning engines in plane

Start with ether/starting fluid. It will rinse oil spots off the engine and the firewall without attacking the paints or covering. Pretty good at lifting oil stains out of the bare wood also.

RE: Starter for 50cc??

Dewalt 14 or 18v rechargeable drill. And a large starter cone from tower. Works like a charm, and you need a good rechargeable drill anyway. If you do go this rout, get the Li-ion battery packs....

RE: What is best for 3d: 22x8, 23x8 or 22x10 on 50cc sd yak?

A stock 22x8 TF prop isn't enough for a 50cc engine. They are a thin prop and will flex. But a 24x8 TF cut down to 22.5x8 makes one heck of a prop. That way you get some serious wide blade prop...

RE: VESS prop tiny damage - how serious is it?

I do it similar, but I make up some balsa, or maple, or oak, sanding dust to pack the chip. Blends right in when done.

You are leaving out the tinkerers. Building and adjusting an exhaust system can and will lead to making deposits when exhaust gas flow isn't optimal. In cases where there is no way to get perfect...

KS-86 rear dump canns with a total header length, measured to the baffle inside the cann of 15.5 to 17" will give equal to stock power. Very quiet too.
