    I was wondering about that myself, hsukaria. I would rather get the engine back to its original status, but I will look for a backplate in parallel with this.

    Also, if anyone out there knows, I...

    Do you have any idea why those rocker arms loosened up on you like that? Factory assembly, perhaps? I have a bunch of Saito's too. I've been lucky so far.....

    When I fly a plane that uses rubber bands, I cut them off with a knife. That way, they will never be used again. I've found that the fuel can deteriorate them in only a week, and they become dried...

    Acdii, yeah, I think you're right. Strike my last, um, suggestion if you're going to be painting. Perhaps it is a bad idea all over, in afterthought.

    QwkSport,

    On those Bowman rings, do you notice a difference in power when you use them, or is it just that you can get a replacement for a ring that isn't stocked any more???

    Thanks,
