    I use Silvo, Brasso works too. Not sure of the grit. I would get something pretty fine like swirl mark remover or something similar.

    http://texastimers.com/ they have the .049 fine thread needle valves. The carb you may need to hunt a bit harder for. The .049 carb is 1/4" - 32, so a burned glow plug may work in a pinch with some...

    The VA is AAC, right? Tighter when hot means the piston could maybe grow with heat. Not like the ABC which goes looser. Some are so tight when cold that they seize in frigid weather like my NV .074.

    My Norvel .15 BB didn't respond well to the head, just a thousand. I wrote some #s. No muffler 16,900 rpm. .202" control line carb 18,900. Turbo plug give me 20,400. So the carb is the biggest...

    My unpiped CS was no better than a TD. I made a Nelson head many years ago, and it didn't help at all from the stock button one. Lately I copied the Picco P0 head with the turbo plug, and it goes...

    You got to have your health first. Maybe happiness is better, because you would have your health and wealth to be that way? I played a bit with my LA .15's. I used a 7-5 M Airscrew for the tests....

    Is that header totally blocking off the front exh port? If it isn't being used for exh, it may as well be used for a bypass. Maybe something to try on an old cylinder. There are no shortages of...

    Well we have to paint the basement tomorrow, and then I can bring my model stuff over. The best part is I can go down in the back yard and go over a breakwall, and there is a big lake (Erie) to play...

    I think the 1100 series of aluminum are the best/softest, but 5052, 3003 and even 6061 seem to be used as well. I would guess that the threading would be difficult, as it would be quite thin at the...

    Just looking at some metal spinning videos. This one is stretched pretty far. It may work better than starting with tubing. www.youtube.com/watch?v=bXu_16eZKnw

    I don't think it would matter much, maybe the carbon may stick a bit easier. I have an AP .15 with chatter marks and grooves on the piston, but it seals well, and fits well and runs great. The...

    Pond Skipper, I would rub the top of the AP piston on some 600 sandpaper first to get rid of the nasty machining marks. Isn't it an .06 or .09? I didn't know that they made an .049. I lap my...

    I think the 5 is for a 5 port? Some of the car motors are even seven, or sometimes three. I had been thinking of the .28 for a piped B speed control line plane for a record attempt. I need to find...

    We used to break them in with no pipe so it would not get too hot. I think that nowadays the plan is to break them in at the operating temps, but well on the rich side. That CS was nasty tight. Not...

    Yes, when I got my CS .049, it would barely turn over. That is the reason the gentleman sold it to me. He could not get it to run at all because it was so tight. I had to lap it a fair bit to get...

    We can still get the tub and tile epoxy paint. The shelf life of the part A colored part has a shorter shelf life than the hardener. It is not in a spray can though. The brand we have around here is...

    The Cub, ya if it would run. I got six and sold off a few. Most of them did not even run. Maybe with a bladder.

    Dave, aren't you flying the .25 scale combat any more? That should use up some planes quickly. I just bought a smaller house, so I may have to thin out the herd a bit too. Seem to have collected a...

    Lately the A speed planes are just an F2A FAI plane with monoline on 65 ft. lines and 10% nitro. Pretty much the same guys running them too. There really isn't much happening in the speed circles.

    Just wonder if $150 an hour sounds reasonable to you. With a good print, someone may be able to make the tooling much cheaper. Maybe even freeish. My one lathe will not cut tapers, and the other...

    I hope I can remember that rule of thumb. It sounds about right. I kind of figured one up and one down on diameter and pitch, but it didn't seem that accurate after a while, like going 6" to 8"...

    I ran up a few .25 sized motors just to see. I used an 8-6 Master Airscrew prop and 10% on all test with no muffler. The LA .25 was 15,500 with the control line carb, a different one with the rc...

    I have had no luck getting my MVVS .15 up to any speed. Wouldn't even do 14,000 with or without pipe. All the other stuff that size was around 17,000 up to 20,000, on the 7-5 MA prop. even the LA. ...
