RE: Moki Engines Thread

If the low speed adjustment o-ring is broken, it will effect your carb at any speed.

RE: Moki Engines Thread

Have you inspected the rotary low speed adjustment dial on the carb? They sometimes have problems when the O-ring perishes. This means that the dial won't stay put and also causes leaks. Mine had...

RE: Moki Engines Thread

Just out of interest, what size hole did you drill in your Moki's backplates, and what size did you tap the threads? Could you post links to the pressure nipple you used? Or any details on how...

RE: Moki Engines Thread

I use a 3 line system with ASP fuel dots. I find the the filler line has worked fine with a second clunk. When I referred to filler, I really mean the 3rd line.

The perry pump, under some...

RE: Moki Engines Thread

A header tank is a smaller second tank that helps even-out fuel supply. Because the header is smaller, it can be plumbed in to a more suitable, higher position. The header tank should have it's own...

RE: Moki Engines Thread

@ Luv Bipes

How do you find the Moki compares to the OS 1.60 in terms of power output cc for cc? OS engines are always used as a bench mark. Moki engines seem to have a very high compression...

RE: Moki Engines Thread

I'm a firm believer of belt and braces. I think a pump will most likely cure it, providing there is nothing nasty lurking in your carb or lines or air leaks. At the same time, using 1/8th" lines...

@ LuvBipes

Well, it's interesting that 2 suppliers give such conflicting advice, but just as you say - whilst they are credible, they will only offer their advice or written instruction based on...

RE: Moki Engines Thread

@Bunsen

I love your Bipe as well. It looks 'Proper'. I think I'm going to have to build one soon, so long as it's aerobatic and has a stupidly powerful engine - like the Moki 1.80 or 2.10.

RE: Moki Engines Thread

It's interesting what you say about the fuel tubing. My Moki 1.35 was supplied with instructions that specifically point out that 3/32 fuel lines should not be used. I used the recommended 1/8th"...

RE: Moki 135 vs YS 120

I put a Moki 135 into my Funtana S90 - it's approximately a 25% size model. The Funtana S90 is perfect for the Moki and the CoG works out just right! As a bonus, the tank can be mounted near the...

RE: Moki Engines Thread

Good job, like the builds you have there. Always fancied a bipe, but seem to be swayed at the last minute to low/mid wingers. One day though! Hovering on 1/3 - that's just showing off that is!

RE: Moki Engines Thread

Nice! If I get around to building anything bigger, large Mokis look like the way to go. By all accounts, they're just like my 1.35 only bigger.[8D]

RE: Moki Engines Thread

Cheers Captinjohn!

It's difficult not to like the Moki 1.35, from the moment you open the box. It has a very solid feel about it and the parts have a 'machined from billet' look about them. ...

Here's the engine, with the carb related problems.

And now afterwards with the low speed dial cleaned and an extra O-ring on the carb intake.

The high compression ratio is very noticeable when starting! I've seen people starting 1.20 size O.S. engines using their finger and thumb to flick the spinner. You couldn't possibly do that on a...

RE: Moki Engines Thread

Not much, but it's my understanding that it's very similar to the Moki 135, just with a different bore/piston.

RE: Moki Engines Thread

That's a nice clean looking engine. That would go nice in my 55" Cessna! How old was it when you sold it? And what did you fly it in?
