    S75 Needle Valve availability

    Hello:
    I am trying to locate a source for a needle valve for an S75 engine that has never been run.
    All of the online parts lists that I have found only support the newer G versions, save for a few select parts for this older engine.
    Engine is pictured below.
    Any help in locating a source is appreciated.
    Regards,
    JR

    HELP also. Need an Idle needle valve for my ST 75. Was ripped out during crash. My engines is exactly like yours. Hope we can locate someone that stocks parts for old model ST engines.

    The needle valve assembly shown in the picture has been long, long discontinued. You'll only be able to find one via an online search, or through some retailer who sells parts and engines for the collectors' market.

    RE: S75 Needle Valve availability

    Harry Higley used to sell those replacement needle valves. Try contacting him - he still might have some.

    Gosh, model airplanes are not a matter of life and death - they are more important than that!

    RE: S75 Needle Valve availability

    Thanks for your responses. Yesterday I checked with my local hobby shop and he had one of the needles in the original packet and sold it to me for the original price of .99 cents! Sometimes you just get lucky. He did mention that in the day a lot of folks would go with the Higley needle because it was longer and easier to reach. I will check to see if I can find contact information for him and see if he has any of the long needles left.
