    I own (3) Brison 2.4 which are very similar to the above listed engines. I did not recommend those engines as only the FPE is still available new. The others would have to be sourced on the used...

    If you do some checking around, you'll find that some guys modify the converted 4 strokes so the oil residue circulates through the cam housing, up the push rod covers to the rockers. This lubes all...

    Yes the Syssa is available and I owned one when they first came out. A very nice engine but overall I was disappointed with the whole purchase and ownership experience. I sold it and went with the...

    If we're talking about the older ignitions, all the ones I have owned that had the advance curve built in were engraved "SS" for SynchroSpark on the covers.

    Regarding the residue on the piston skirts, many times this accumulates during the initial break in process. Push an engine too hard too early and add a bit of extra heat and you will get this. It...

    Speedracer, nothing in your photos looks that bad. The wristpin spacers in the pistons will control any side movement of the rods. The skirt staining happened over time and not just on one run. I'm...

    Carlos, sounds like you're on track. I'd certainly replace any loose servo or power cables. I prefer to keep my plug ground leads as short as possible and attach them to a bolt on top of the cylinder...

    As you say, neither prop is ideal for the airframe or the engine. I've had that engine for some time and though not flown a lot, I find a 22-8 to be about the limit of its ability and that would be...

    The 1000w rating is probably input power. Your calculations are based on output power. The device is not 100% efficient and the remaining power is heat loss which is common.

    That would eliminate the airflow problem! He could still be having a cowl pressure issue but I certainly agree with your earlier post, could just be needle settings. Then it would just be an issue of...

    I've had similar problems with twins when the bottom mounted carb has the regulator diaphragm facing forward into the airstream. As airspeed increases the increasing pressure on the diaphragm causes...

    Regardless of chemistry, in my shop any battery used as a flight pack gets a capacity check at least once a year. As Pamster said, there is really no other way to check the true capacity of a...

    +1 on TnT Landing gear. I think I have used them 4 or 5 times now for custom gear and they do good work at a fair price. Fairly quick service too. Go to their website for a form you can complete for...

    Not sure how to respond to that. First, there is no rubber gasket associated with the head. The 160 uses a brass head gasket / shim but no rubber parts. A loose head can cause serious damage to an...

    I agree. While I'm almost all gas these days, the OS 160 was one of my favorite glo engines.

    Ditto on the DLE30 or similar engines. Excellent replacement for the 2 stroke OS160 or 4 stroke engines such as the Saito 180. In many cases you will actually have less weight and increased...

    For piston engines big or small the positive stop method is the only true way to find TDC. No other method accounts for the stack up of bearing lash. You can make a stop from an old sparkplug. For...

    The engine that has the tube from the carb to the reed valve assembly requires that to provide crankcase pressure pulses to operate the fuel pump in the carb. The one that doesn't have that tube has...

    Spend $10 to $15 and buy the Rcexl sensor tester. Great little multi-purpose device and comes with a protractor to set timing.

    Agree .... I would run the engine first and see if any corrective measures are needed. Many engines run just fine without venting the carb to the fuselage. Some will require the mod.

    That Q65 is a lot more engine than the 3mm 53!

    FYI, I have a Z Skyraider with a Q75. Good combination though I'm thinking of trying a more modern engine in an attempt to reduce the vibration level.

    I've never seen reeds used on a piston ported engine. The piston skirt takes care of the intake valving function.

    I'd keep the spacer as thick as possible as it performs a very important heat...
