    MECOA bought up all of the old Webra parts and stuff. They were stating you could order parts from them. You may be able to get a new piston and sleeve from MECOA. Of course I am not sure if it is...

    Yes some of the voild could be filled in by screwing in a stud farther. But for normal usage, the void isn't a problem. It doesn't affect RPMs that much for everyday flying. But if you are going for...

    If I remember correctly the threaded crankshaft end is a removable threaded stud on these engines. Handy for if you manage to bend one somehow.

    I have used the car fuel before. You add more oil to bring up the oil content to 15% to 20%. With 1/2a engines it works great just like that. With bigger engines you may need to dilute it some to...

    Well, that might be a personal thing with the CD and SP engines. They would tend to sound the same in either case. But the SP would have a slightly different sound due to the larger slower turning...

    I didn't drill anything, two holes lined up just right. I like the mount, as it fits a lot of engines. You have to use screws and nuts as they didn't thread any of the holes. But other than that it...

    You could also use the Thunder Tiger RC carbs from their .10 and .15 engines too. I put a .10 carb on a Russian MK-17 2.5cc diesel a while back and it worked OK for me.

    Yes I forgot to mention the magnet on the end of a stick works really well to find those little parts that fall on the floor and bounce or roll off to disappear on you. I use it myself too.
