Should work good! You'll need a flex coupler if you run a flex cable instead of a solid shaft.

I like the Octura flex couplers. Dan's may even have one or try.... Not sure the threads on a OPS. Roger might know.

Rick,
I strongly suggest you join the IntlWaters.com forum. They can help quite a bit with nitro. You also find motors for sale there from reputable folks. OPS parts are going more difficult to find if you need them. US importer is no longer there. Tom Galdys (from Elmira club) had many OPS engines and parts for sale and it would be wise to hook up with him. Just a hit on the larger motors: newer motors use needle roller bearings on the conrod and not bushings.

I have spare .67 Picco's 4 of em. I can let one go CHEAP .Going to big nitro, costs $. My .67 CMB cat uses 18 OZ per heat. Craig had a 90 OS and he found out about nitro costs. He runs gas in the hull now. The .45 size engine isn't too bad. That Vee hull I showed you will run a .45
A guy had 2 .45 CMB used for sale $150 for both. On the IW just last week.

Neil,
Great point about fuel consumption. My MAC67 cat used 20+ ounces. Quick but expensive.

The bigger nitro motors work well with lower nitro %, so that is an option to save money. But a .45 should not be too bad with fuel consumption. My .90 was rediculous.... The O.S. 46 vx-m is a good motor too, but it needs a 180 degree header. I have this engine in my Speedmaster mono and it will run 52 mph all day long with a stock X450/3 prop.

Yes, go on Intlwater Waters for nitro parts. The best bang for your buck is a $215 Novarossi .21 5-port from Glenn Quarles on IW and then install it in a Zippkit .21 rigger and you'll have a ton of fun!!

Ricky...OPS 45 uses 1/4-28 thread flex coupler...Octura part no: OCFHO4518 for .187 shaft; part no: OCFHO4525 for .250 shaft. Here is a pdf of the Octura catalog: http://www.offshoreelectrics.com/dow...%20Catalog.pdf I may have a .187 one if you need one. Roger

Roger I think I'm close to 20 oz full on my cat. I still love semi big nitro. I gotta go pic tomatoes ,were canning. Pickles are done. I help my brother out. I'm the skinner & picker. I wasn't happy with pipe length on the .45 rigger. So here I go chopping pipes. Glenn's new .45 header is nice as they get.
Tom the water cooled .21 header was on E-bay

thanks guys... lots of helpful info...
neil, i am interested in the .67... but will have to get bigger platform...
craig, i was on zippkits site last night... the 21 rigger would probably be a good fit for my K&B .21.. but i want a tuned pipe for it also... after seeing and hearing the pipes on sunday, i need one!!!
roger, the info will be helpful,thanks for the pdf alot of good info, i got the ops &pipe for the rigger i already have,just need to get it painted and set up. the rigger has a short tube so i dont think i can run a flex shaft without ripping it out of hull..?? assume i have to run a straight shaft... p.s. i perfer to be called rick... thanks... enough talk i want my boats in the water...

We got to see the new guys in action last night!! Charlie's big Aeromarine mono ran really well. It was pretty well 'aired out' for a large hull!! Rick dusted off (literally!!) a 45 Outboard mono. After a few needle adjustments (mucho richer!!) it was making laps around the buoys. Great looking hull. My son Tom wheeled our Thunderboat and Gas Sport Hydro's for a few tankfuls (Tom only collected one buoy. That's a low count for him!!). He did a great job driving the Gas Sport Hydro and had it cook'in. He did have one spin trying to keep it from blowing off down the back straight. The '360' rivaled Neils Rigger spin a few weeks ago!! We threw in the Cobra2 with OS power for a few runs too. It just seems a lot slower that the VS1 and TS3 efforts earlier. I noticed that it is spraying quite a bit of water off the right sponson from mid ship back. That might be an indication that the prop torque is rolling the hull bit to the right. We were using an X437/3. I think we need a weekend day to use the setup board and test a series of props to see if we can free it up. Roger

Rick are you running Sunday? I'll bring a box of goodies. I have the original box for the Vee hull. All stamped out.So one can build another hull. I also have 2 Dumas Hawks .21 riggers. But I see your a Zip man already. The hawk was a good rigger until the JAE came along. Free to you if you want em. Joe Petro has some plywood sheets that are 2nds .They may have a plug in the ply. You need to talk to him.

My 3 boats are ready. I'm not running them until the Ottawa race. I don't want to break anything. I ran my Speedmaster 45 today and that boat is always fun to run. The engine started right up and ran on the same plug as I used last year.
