    Perhaps you are using a Pitts style muffler? Many of these do not provide enough pressure to the tank for proper fuel flow. I don't think I have ever seen a pressurized system need over 4 turns on...

    Gene, On mine, the fixed ring (the one on the fuse) was a little too large for the cowl to easily slip over it. I sanded it down a bit until the cowl was an easy fit. You might try that.

    Mine is my first biplane bigger than a .15, so I was a little nervous the first time I flew it. However, the WACO flies very predictably. I don't know your history, but you have been on RCU for...

    A heat gun, like for shrinking covering, is maybe a better source of heat. Hopefully that will work.

    Gene, you have to figure that GP meant for customers to use any or all of the plates. I wouldn't worry one bit about it. BTW, I have 2 120 AX's, and they are great engines. Your plane will have a...

    Not sure which screw you are speaking of. The two phillips-headed screws that fasten many OS carbs to the engine can be difficult to remove. If that is the one giving you problems, you need to have...

    I have one of those engines that also needed a carb. I removed the carb from a junk OS SF-46 and it fit and worked perfectly. I think that you could use the carb off a lot of older...

    I was afraid you were going to say that. I had thought of drilling the heads off, but since the bolts are only available with a new rod, that would certainly be a last (expensive) resort.

    I re-read your original post more carefully. In my experience, the air bleed carbs on the small OS 4-strokes run too rich. If it speeds up before it dies, probably it is going lean, then runs out...

    Dan, two things. First, I would suggest you try a little less prop, maybe a 10x6. The other consideration is what airframe you are using. If it is a tail dragger, then the angle of the fuse at...
