RE: Stihl 56CC gas/glow conversion - need feedback

Thanks for the props guys (no pun intended) :D I could not have done it without your research and contributions.

I ran it this weekend and it was swinging an MA 18x6 @ 10,200 rpm. I think my...

RE: speed record brushless AIRBOAT 75.2mph

Tether airboats? Are you seriously comparing an airboat to a tethered airboat? I want to see one of those tethered boats run at those speeds without a tether, let alone float. And good luck...

RE: A favor....

av8tor

Considering the mill work and balancing of the flywheel, prop hub, FB ring, carb rebuild and free shipping...the Stihl 27cc is a great deal!
I will go post this over at the airboat...

RE: gas fuel with glo plug no ignition

I am using HEET to cut my glow fuel, but I would not cut it 50/50 using the 15/16 glow. I would try 2/3 glow mixing in 1/3 HEET to stay closer to a final 10/10 mix before cutting it with the...

RE: MY SI3G - Nitro's Revenge

Video is a little shaky, but these were the best runs of the day after stripping a rudder linkage, dunking the motor, leaking from all three sponsons. Still had a good time. There is still some...

RE: crankcase sealing on gas/glow conversions

I put the spoiler on to prevent flipping at high speed. It did plow though...good call [:@] And the boat at 20lbs, did not need it. At least not yet :D I had 1/2" standoffs if needed, but did not...

RE: step boat finished

That twin is just the dopest rig I have seen in a long time [:@] Looks like the step hull is a great match with the motor too.

RE: crankcase sealing on gas/glow conversions

Butterfly is right, but I did not rebuild the carb per the strong recommendation. If I start to back off WOT it just dies, even with the glow igniter hooked up. I am pretty sure it is running real...

RE: crankcase sealing on gas/glow conversions

Thanks for the quick reply guys. Do you think the problems I had getting anything other than WOT would point to this crank leak? I am still gonna rebuild the carb, but just wonder if increasing...

RE: Stihl 56CC gas/glow conversion - need feedback

RE: Stihl 56CC gas/glow conversion - need feedback
