Thanks Bone. I really enjoy buying the used ones, cleaning them up, replacing bearings, rings, gaskets, etc., and getting them up and running again. There'll be more to come.

Hi Dave, Ran my Super Tigre S.29 today. Mine is the version that came after yours with the square head. It also has the less restrictive muffler that was used before the silent muffler. On Omega 5% with some castor added I saw 15,200 rpm using a MA 9X5 prop. I have been impressed with all my Super Tigre/Como engines I have. Your ST .40 Bluehead in the other thread looks great.

Best regards, Bill

Great numbers Bill! I'm watching out for a G.34 Silent muffler. But, I doubt it will add 1,000 rpm! The more ST's I buy the more I like them.

I installed a new G.34 Silent muffler on the S.29 and ran it some more. These ST mufflers are impressive. I gained 991rpms and the sound level was considerably lower. Amazing.
