    I really don't think it matters Captain John. You "pays your money and takes your chances". All the engines from China are a "crap shoot" as far as I'm concerned. At least DLE seems to try to...

    Yes, their price is reasonable compared to other offerings without the EFI. However, I fly all conversion engines that I get for free or nearly so. I have a fleet of 10 airplanes flying, and only...

    I would inquire of Valley View whether they use left hand threads on the backwards turning prop hub. I imagine they do.

    Yes, I would have to say at least parts of the muffler consistently get over 750 degrees when the engine is run at full throttle.

    Well, the exhaust gases run around 1200 degrees Farenheit on a properly tuned engine. The muffler itself won't reach that, but close on a long, high throttle run especially at low airspeeds.

    It's not hard to take that screen out and clean or replace it, what's hard is not losing it in the process. A hobby, or Exacto knife can be used to gently pry it out of it's home, then you can clean...
