Success !!
 
Finally able to successfully convert Duratrax TORQ 3.5 to diesel power. Spun new head on my lathe with GREAT results. The "button" head is spun from a grade 5 bolt head(softest bolt i had). The finish isn't as smooth as i would like but it works.
This is the second rc car engine i was able to convert with excellent results. I am VERY pleased......
