Why RC Universe of course. Read read read. The search and ask questions. In turn, you will find links to other places.

Enjoy,

Jim

Asking this is of course the first step and why it is here but it is the breakdown of to how to that I seek... I am sure there are more than a few web sites that deal with it step by step and that is what I am hoping to find first...

Here's another place to start:

http://www.geocities.com/CapeCanaver...216/webww.html

It is talking about Ryobi engines, but the steps give you the general idea what needs to be done on others as well.
A great place to get conversion parts (prop adapters,etc) is Peter Faith at:

http://www.wackerengines.com

He's also a good source of information if you run into a problem. There's also another web page (at least) that shows the step-by-step procedure for the Homelite 25 & 30 cc engines, but I've misplaced the link - maybe one of the other helpfull people who peruse this forum will be able to supply it.
