    Try finding Chris Selph on Facebook. I am not sure if the plans are freely distributable or not - some of us have the plans.

    Yeah, it seems these wire circlips have a tendency to remove themselves from the piston (had a Fox .40 do this numerous times) or break the little "tail" off and cause problems. On my brat, I did...

    Setting the idle gap to 1/8" as the above tutorial indicates is way too big. You'll never get that tuned right. A proper idle gap for starting out is .5-.7mm. The low speed needle controls fuel...

    The .60FSR I got at the same time as this engine has no marking on the piston either... Both engines are late 70s vintage - the .60 looks like it ran about a dozen tanks, crashed, and got...

    Here's a decent video of this boat with an Enya .60 four stroke engine on it with wet rudder and I think 12x6 prop. I've never been able to get it to not hop in the turns. The porpoising can be...

    Greetings Dave H!

    This engine didn't have a factory marking on the piston - it was a marking from the previous owner. The previous owner said he either marks the piston for the exhaust port or...

    It will flip over by 45mph with this engine. I'd need to go back to a 2-stroke on a smaller prop to lower the CG and get more rpm. But really - this is not a speed machine. It's fun the way it...

    It's pretty fast with the big 20cc 4-stroke on it - so much power it's been hard to get it to balance perfect and not porpoise at speed. It runs dead flat with a 10-15cc 2-stroke though. I use a...

    I don't have a problem with it - just wasn't familiar with Irvines, so I didn't know if maybe it had the wrong crank or something. I'll have to get a big reamer from the hobby shop.

    I got this engine from a friend - two head screws were stripped. So I drilled/tapped them deeper to repair that. Then another friend sent me a donor parts engine of the same Mk - only real...

    LA Totally Awesome from the dollar store does the same thing and won't get gummy or turn anything yellow. It's also heaps cheaper and less messy than linseed oil.

    It's been awhile since this baby has been run, so I felt like a good day to go out and run some fuel through it. The carb was a little sticky, but once freed up, she ran like she always does. ...

    They use Linseed oil in certain hardwood floor oils. The stuff gets hard as nails once it dries and cures. They used to put linseed oil in paint many years ago also.

    I'm curious how it...

    If using 15% nitro, that likely is the issue. Those big cats don't like much nitro. I venture to guess dropping to 0-5% nitro will cure the trouble.

    The other option would be to cut a Walbro carburetor apart and just use the regulator. Personally, if I needed a regulator, I'd just order the Cline. I believe it even uses Walbro parts inside.

    Richening the needle way out and not getting the engine to run any richer tells me there's a fuel restriction or there's a lot of air bubbles getting through to the engine. I would be ensuring the...
