    Dean, I thought I was out of the picture; the several new O.S. AX Chinese-made engines I've seen (both .55AX and .65AX) have been crap. So I figured I'd never find a good, NEW older O.S. Engine I...

    Okay, good info. That means the 91 Surpass muffler stack will screw into the exhaust port of the 95V. Two questions:

    Does anyone still MAKE Pitts mufflers for four strokes? I did a lot of looking on the internet, didn't find anything for a Saito 100; or an OS four stroke, for that matter.

    Ran across one today (NIB) in the LHS, at a very nice price, so I bought it. I also bought a NIB Saito 72.

    After looking at it later, that 72 seems like a bit more engine than this model needs. So...
