Did Newton have a wife with a rather LARGE set of honkers when he came up the the ''gravity theory''?
Thanks, I just spit coffee all over the monitor...

No matter how much money you spend on the engine it is still a glorified chainsaw engine. Kind of like putting a dress on a hog. No matter how many dresses you put on it. There is still a hog underneath.

Hey Whistlingdeath and Eagleburger - I have the same issues as you guys - I see new threads asking the questions and thingk ''Oh no - not another one'' - but i look anyway. Luckily I can't eat chocolate
It's like watching a train wreck, it is gut wrenching but you just can't turn away.

JNorton is right, the search actually does work. Not perfect but better than some.

Did Newton contemplate "RC" universe? Yikes I don't eve think he could wrap his big brain around that one.


Believe me if I could start my own forum on oil I would. That might be a good resource for people who are seeking knowledge about oil mixtures. BUT all in all it is simple as dirt because as stated earlier in the thread they are just glorified chain saw or weed eater engines. They may be ported different and modified a bit but if you use good oil at the oil manufacturers recommended ratio you will be OK.

LMAO at this thread! Some good points in there:
-USE the search. I have; it...
-Sucks! (I still try to use it anyway)
-Always a few that get P/O'd when the same ol' thread topic comes up; hey, don't read it and especially, DON'T respond.
-42:38:46 oil ratios, you could say she's got it all! (my apologies to AC/DC for mangling the quote)

Yep, there is always some newbie too lazy to do a search that wants everyone else to provide them info so they don't have to open the manual.

Yes, there seems to be a lot of those on the "just for newbies" RCU. The vast majority of the experienced people got fed up with the perpetual process and went to other forums. I'm only here for short looks anymore.

Perhaps it would be best for someone to make a sticky for newbies on oil issues like the one Bob Pastorello made for general info on gas engines. Maybe even just incorporate it in with Bob's sticky?

Guys, do a search. It is REAL easy and it works great.
This topic has been KILLED every week for YEARS.
USE the SEARCH OPTION!
It's called search for a reason.
Search is really good for you try it.
Search, it's the new search.
One search a day keeps the oil monsters away.
When contemplating the universe, Newton didn't ask, he searched.
I know I am a car guy, and maybe it is different here, but when ever I search a thead, find something, and then ask one more question, people yell at me about bringing up a old thread......


So should I use the search, and have people, and mods give me a hard time about bringing up a old thread...
Oooorrrr, start a new thread, and have people, and mods give me a hard time about not using the search?

D.A. tells you what percentage to use for breakin in the manual. Use an ashless oil non synthetic for break in. D.A, specifies lawnboy. I run 4 gallons of lawnboy through all my D.A. engines then switch to a hi quality synthetic such as Redline racing oil or Amsoil. I read in Model Aviation I think, that one of D.A.'s service crew prefers redline oil due to less ring fouling/ gumming. I tried it and picked up 200 rpm over amsoil. I just have to ask if you read your qwners manual before starting this thread. Go with what D.A. recommends!

Agree! "Teach a man how to fish and he will be well fed forever. Give him a fish and he will starve after eating it." or something like that.

LOL ... or a bad dream that you can't get away from, the type that starts again each time you fall asleep again !
The old search engine was good. I never understood why RCU changed to what they have now
I always thought it was just a trial and they would see sense and terminate it!
Virtually all publicly available forum software has excellent search features but RCU have THIS??

Use 32 parts Jolt beverge to one part dielectric grease and add one Beano tablet for no gas. After breakin wind, take Gas-X on a regular basis.

Most people don't have several thousand $ invested in their chainsaw or weed eater.
True! So How about ultralights? Those guys have their *****es on the line and love Pennzoil for Air-Cooled, and strongly dislike Amsoil. Better protection on a lean run, fewer stuck rings, very little carbon.

But what ratio for my Ryobi??

You're 1/16 of the way there buddy, so don't be too quick to say anything

Don't forget, I've been in this forum for about 6 or 7 years now.

Notice what subject I'm NOT discussing in this thread?

No, he addressed that in that other popular thread:

"Steve,

You left out a few things, but that's ok. Sometimes it's good to read the later lamentations from those that missed a couple of steps. Warms the heart and generates a lot of entertainment.

Too bad most of those all concerned about oil in their RC engines don't ever think about the oil in their car engines...............

I didn't vote either. It all depends on my mood, the day, the weather, the way the engine is going to be run, the prop, my wife's honeydo list, and my broker, and the daily surf report.

i'm still wondering why there isn't a thread on mixing oil/gas by weight.........that one doesn't come up.
You must be an engineer.

They are the only ones that can't read the label on a bottle or look at the graduation lines on a mixing cup. I work with a bunch that used to mix gas and oil by weight. After a couple years pulling my hair our everytime they hauled out the scale the problem resolved itself when the battey died and nobody had a spare. They were a long ways from anywhere and all they had left was reading the lable on the oil bottle and estimating the amount of gas in the can right after putting 5 gallons in it at the gas station......

But hey, if that what fluffs your skirt, feel free. I sure as heck won't try and stop anyone from going that route.

As for RCU having a crappy search engine...I agree. However. RCU IS NOT the Universe where RC is concerned. There just happen to be a couple of other forums devoted to giant scale. Where gas engines are the norm rather than something new. In one of them there is enough experience accumulated with the modeling population where the need for an oil and ratio question isn't needed. I spend a lot of time there these days.

You must be a Tired Old Man....you should rest!
