    As I mentioned in another forum? My .25 had a G clip failure and it scored the piston cyl. I guess that is a problem with them. I got it for $15 at a swap meet thinking I could use it for parts on...

    Funny that you mention the Brat .25 with a missing G clip. I have one on the junk shelf (the drawer is reserved for the better ones) with a scored piston/liner where the G clip came off. We used to...

    Just a thought on broken crankpins. I have had a few go on me, and believe it is because of too little clearance on the rod to crank fit. When it gets hot, it seizes and snaps it off. I believe...

    I don't think it makes any difference what country it comes from. The machines that make them are the same. It is likely something simple like a hole in the pickup line inside the tank, or a leaky O...

    I found all the plastic props in my drawer were balanced very well from the factory. (hundred or so) It is an inconvenience at the field if you don't have a prop prepared though.

    I have not tried it in a crockpot. May be an idea. Maybe an ultrasonic cleaner would be better. I just spray it on, leave it for a bit, and scrub with a toothbrush. A brass toothbrush on the...

    I have used this method before, and still use it on mufflers. Since then, I just use the LA Totally Awesome spray from the Dollar Tree. It is just a concentrated cleaner. It works just as well, and...

    I don't know, but am wondering about getting some cheap replacement for an old X .15 Supertiger as well. Have you thought about pressing in a new bushing if that is the issue?

    I like the block of hardwood idea, maybe with a nose gear style coiled wire for some torsion give. If you are going to scrap it, combat is always a fun goodbye, then you don't need no stinking...

    Left hand drill in a lathe, then an EZ out. Regular drill is ok too. Sometimes you can chase it out with an ice pick too.

    I don't think backplate pressure will work at all with a throttle unless you use a regulator which is a bit hard on a little guy. Any throttle will be more of a shutoff than anything. We used a...

    I think a Fora or Profi might be a bit quicker and lighter, but not by much. They are still pretty good after all these years. Really the Conquest is the only Cox I really would ever want. The...

    I heated and banged on wood until I was blue in the face. This tool grabbed between the chamfers in the bearing and the case. It was really stuck in good in that case. The carbon hardened on the...

    Only way to check the DeSaxe effect (new word for me, although I knew about the practice.) on different compressions would be to take off the backplate and check the compression again both ways. I...

    Maybe the base compression is more when going backwards, and that pushes out the rings a bit? Maybe this is not plausible. The intake port window is closed a bit longer when going backwards.

    If it seems tight, maybe it just needs more break in time? I had/have an old worn out .19 that did that too. It would just cut out at full throttle. Never did figure that one out. I was going to...

    You are correct that aluminum expands faster than brass. That is why high silicon aluminum is used for pistons, often over 22%. It provides better wear resistance than steel too because of that,...

    Brass expands faster than aluminum, and it gets looser as it heats up as in an ABC. That is the great part of the ABC. A few lean runs on a steel set can ruin them. An ABC has a better chance of...
