    RE: Who makes plain bearing engines

    Plain/Plane are two words that are pronounced to sound exactly the same in standard English.

    You're information is way out of date

    RE: Buy American R/C engines

    I wouldn't be too suprised if much of the current production of K&B engines wasn't made in Asian Rim Countries as well. Really as an Australian I can't think of one Americian Engine I'd buy these...

    RE: Options for castor oil?

    You can successfully use A747 and Benoil in diesels but mostly the AAC or ABC p/l types. They can also be used with conventional diesels with chromed liners and specially fitted cast iron pistons....

    RE: cox .010 control line airplane

    Clearly Skaliwag you're not gifted with any Cox 010 c/l experience.

    RE: cox .010 control line airplane

    It should fly just fine on 20' lines. You should be able to get some .008" diameter steel c/l line from SIG or Brodak. Steel fishing of the same size line should work as well. The picture shows blind...

    RE: newbie question McCoy 0.049

    The crank sure is busted!

    . This model McCoy was prone to crankshaft breakages. You can still get parts for 'em (including cranks) off a bloke called <a target="_blank"...
  8. RE: Thread size on OS 10 needle valve assembly

    Maybe that should be "where they need to have guns"

    You will find that McMasters etc do sell M4 x .5 taps and dies at reasonable prices.

    It's not good engineering practice to use similar but...

    [quote]ORIGINAL: jbirnsch

    I ran into this problem with a OS MAX 19 steel fin that was missing the NVA. I bought a OS10 NVA and could not find the thread size. I found that a 6-48 gun tap was a...

    RE: Irvine Engines

    Well OS aren't usually criticised for utterly basic failures in quality control like you described above.

    RE: Gilbert .11

    Actually I can't make any sense out of your argument. English isn't your first language is it?

    Have you ever even run a diesel?

    An integral Gilbert 11 glow head can very easily be tapped for a...

    RE: Irvine Engines

    More likely a ham fisted user problem!

    I have nine Irvines from 0.75cc and 1.3 cc diesels to the .25 ci red glows and certainly head leakage isn't a problem in any of them. One can't account for...

    The R320 is NOT a Olly Major replica. It's a development of the R250 with stretched bore and stroke. Oliver made several batches of .19's as well. They were also based on the 2.5cc Tiger. The Major...

    Stop the engine.
