Default DDD Head for OS 108 FSR

Hi Guys

I am desperately looking for a Diesel head for my OS 108 FSR. Does anyone here have one they are willing to sell?

Our friend AMB has one but I don't think he'd part with it. I was going to borrow it a while back for my ASP 1.08 but no go, the OS 1.08 has 8 head bolts the ASP only 6.

Yes, I know that Martin has a OS 108 FSR with a Davis head and was hoping that he will say something

I have a brand new one , not in package nor instructions but you really don't need instructions. Not cheap but not full price either. Let me know if your interested.
as a side note I have a NIB OS108 complete with muffler in original box

Joshua,

I forwarded a PM but it is not showing in my folder as sent. I'll forward another one to be sure that you receive it.

This concludes a 2 years search. I now have OS 40 FSR, 61 FSR, 90 FSR, 91 FSR, 108 FSR, and 160 FX all diesels

The 40 FSR is flying a Phoenix Models Dolphin Mk. 2 - 63" wingspan and is a treat! It spins a 13-6 APC prop at up to 8,000 RPM and flies as smoothly and reliably as an electric motor. Never skips a beat and I get about 10 minutes on 6 Oz. of fuel.

I got about 7000 RPM on the OS 91 FSR with a 18-8 Zinger propeller and will test the 108 FSR with a 20-6 and 20-8. One of them is destined to power a Hangar 9 PA-18 Super Cub (1/4 scale) and I think that the ultimate determining factor will be the weight. I am afraid that the Super Cub will be tail heavy with either OS.

Current project is a Ryan STA from Phoenix Models, 70.8" wingspan to be powered by either the OS 61 FSR or an Enya 60X Diesel engine spinning 16-6 or 16-8 propeller. I plan on mounting the engine on it's side, slightly past 90 degrees so that the muffler will be concealed within the cowl, and, run a hose inside the fuselage to dump the exhaust goo at the tail. This ARF lends itself very readily for this mod.

I will report back as soon as I ran the 108 FSR.

Lots of fun in store ahead in the very near future

Dennis is a straight-up bloke to deal with. He sold me some real nice stuff (and some stuff that basket-case fixers like me enjoy) and everything was exactly as he said.

Man... I read about all this success finding diesel heads for old OSes and I'm struggling to find one for an FP .10 or FSR .10...

I would diesel a K&B Sportster .20 or .28 sportster too.. I'm on a diesel kick as of lately myself.

Okay, end of thread hijack. Enjoy your FSR diesels!

Well I know that I have heads for the 20 and 28 K&B Sportster. I did have heads for the OS10 but I'm not sure if any remain.

If you're selling heads and have one for the FP10 and 20 Sportster, I might be game for both. Did you buy up some Davis Diesel stock or something?

I have no more heads for the OS10 but I do have two heads for the K&B sportster 20. One new and one used. I believe that the head for the 20 is also good for the 28 as the head that is used was on my 28 and was a perfect fit and ran extremely well.
No heads left for the LA46,but there is quite a few others including some usual brands. Super Tigre, MVVS, K&B, Webra, Fox and OS. It was amazing how fast the Irvine heads disappeared.
No I didn't buy stock, I was extremely active with diesels for about 15 years and was a steady buyer of heads for possible use. How any people do you know who dieselized a K&B 100.

The Sportster .20 and.28 share some of the same parts though my .20 and .28 are different. The .20 has the o-ring head and no bronze crank bushing, the .28 has the modern bronze crank bushing and metal head without o-ring or gasket. It came with one head shim oddly enough. Anyway, if the price is right, I'd buy one of the small K&B .20/.28 heads.

Ive not known anyone who actually owned a K&B 1.00... . Well, I do now.. LoL.

I've seen them before. It's got a really goofy muffler on it.
