    Andy,
    Any idea what the rivet size in the cowl front reinforcement ring would be? I'm thinking of just using dome head rivets.. maybe 3/16 inch?

    Andy,
    My cowl wasn't grooved either. So I made one using a modified tool I got at harbor freight. It's a crimping/cutting tool with the cutter part cut off. The crimp part is in the aft of the...

    Cool stuff! Nice work Andy.. Does your cowl have a grove in it for the cowl cable to hold it on?
    Many don't.. Probably most don't. I was just wondering.

    California Air Tools sells a great compressor. Very quiet, twin aluminum tanks and easy to move about.
    You can order one at Home Depot and pick it up in the store with no shipping.

    Adrian,
    I think most of the planes are large enough to house the ignition with out a problem. Most WWI types are 1/4 scale. WWII Types would be around 1/5 scale. Same for civilian Air craft.

    On my 770 using a 24-8 I get around 5300. That's with straight exhaust and no pressure to the fuel tank.
    you would,be better off with a smaller diameter prop for more RPMs.

    Lots of planes for that engine. WWI planes would be any of the 1/3 Pups or DR1's or Camels.
    WWII would be P-47 Meister sized. Maybe a Large Waco 1/3 scale.

    James,
    Thank you.
    I know the manual recommends 87-91 Octane. The higher (100) octane fuel shouldn't matter to my way of thinking. The compression isn't high enough to take advantage of the higher...
