OK, looks like 2.5mm x .45 x 10mm

120/150/180/220 use the same valve train components other than pushrods & valves.

Thanks.

You're welcome. The little LT 25 is ready to go except for the new TruTurn spinner that's coming.

Is that a chest freezer your LT25 I sitting on?

My USAircore Knighthawk is setting on my chest freezer right now. I set it up as a taildragger too. It has an FA-91S W/CDI shoehorned into the nose inverted.

It sure is, my wife gets a little cranky when she has to move airplanes to get dinner. I still have an unbuilt Colt 40.

It has a G62 and I think ii'm going to change it out for a BME 102 (This thing is a brick) I built two of them 25 years ago at the price of $6000.00 for both and his has been rebuilt two times. I wish i could afford a Radial for both, man that would be sweet! l also have two TF P-47 to rebuild. I do more work in retirement then i did when i was working, guess thats better than being dead! lol The hold up on the Zero is retracts. BUT! No puns on your Mom! Love her for a long time, for if not for our Mom's we would not be here!
Hey sammy that harvard/t6 sounds interesting.A flying mate has a yellow t6 that had a 120 two stroke in it(cough,hiccup,sounds of someone being violently sick)but has seen the light and is fitting a brand new 200r3 saito radial and you know what i don't like? he's going to get to fly his before i get to fly mine.Payback is so sweet tho..since he's a qualified instructer i talked him into some buddy box time on his harvard with the 200r3 so we can do some aerobatics and if i get to carried away he can take his finger off the button and give me a good telling off while he lands it,it's sure to happen we don't miss each other by much as it is when flying the 82's.

Dave that missus of yours sounds right ornery

I am glad you used the term, "can take" instead of, "they need", Saito's are running all over the world on zero nitro and quite happy doing so. 10% is my upper limit.

My high compression FA-180 loves 30%.

Turns almost 9000 with the 18X8 Dynathrust when she's swilling 30% nitro!

Yeah well, even IF your G26 could spin an 18x8 @ 9000 (Zenoah claims 8900 W/a 16x8) you are still only making about 1/2 the weight specific output. Your G26 weighs almost 3 1/2# sans the HEAVY muffler while the FA-180 weighs less than 2#.

Then there's the chainsaw sound to contend with.

Last night I picked up a T100. It was mounted but never run and looks great. It should look and perform really nice on the front of my new Piper Cub (on order). I've never owned a twin before and need to figure out tuning. Any suggestions?

Yea, l hard you there Old fart. Theres nothing better then two plane's wing tip to wing tip. Thats what my brother and l liked to do, thats why we would have two of everything. Now that he passed away. But! When he was alive, he lived 350 miles from me, so when we got together would rely rep it up!
Here most guys get upset when you get on there 6! I remember when you would set a pattern, now you don't know witch way there going to go.

Old Fart, on T6's, I was one of the people who got ANR108a (warbirds legislation) enacted in OZ. We then assisted in the import of 2 x Harvards into OZ. Reg numbers VH SNJ and VH PEM. SNJ is now in Towoomba and looks really good, don't know ere PEM is. As an OAP I find people think that I have heaps of time on my hands, no way. Now on nitro I will only admit to using up to 30% and no more. And old fart if you come over to compete I won't lend you any fuel, no point encouraging the opposition. For radials, we have a couple of big Moki's the odd Saito and a couple of those Siedel radials now being made in India. They appear to be "good value" The sun is out after our little bit of rain yesterday and I reckon I can hear the grass already growing. Catch ya

I don't have the G26 any more. Sold it to a guy from CO, in a 100" WS Eflite Super Cub w/an 18x8 Zinger on it. It jumped off the ground when power was applied. Had a good muffler on it and fuel was

Yes,wind the needle/screw settings in from new and make a careful note of them,that way you won't get to confused by the japanese cultural english expression of americanese when it comes to what they are trying to explain in your engine manual,good luck.

Trev if we get over there to fly comp i reckon you'd owe us some of your home brew fuel after all the money we spent getting there from all the way over here...it's that or the home brewed rocket fuel afterwards.

Charley i spend enough on nitro to make the engine bark and me smile.

Old Fart a bunch of you guys are coming to Canowindra next Easter you should hook up with them and get a real lesson in Saito (and other 4 stroke) performance. But of course you have to get here, knowing you lot you'll probably get lost on the way, unless you fly of course.

I can can now mix 10% lube W/straight methanol for a little over $8 a gallon & still make more HP per pound of engine weight than the G23.

In the grand scheme of things, the small relative saving on fuel cost doesn't offset the safety issues during transport, the obnoxious smell of gasoline and the even more obnoxious 2-stoke sound.
I did'nt watch the vid this time,nicely flown.

Hi popey how are you? and have you run the 100 saito twin yet,carl had a couple of questions about his one i think.

As for border security hear this it's a flat to the floor 17 hr drive to get across the south aussie border from where i am.By that time i've been cooped up in a van full of nitro fumes all day and feel like a party so i'll put my zorro outfit on and you'll be SLASH! SLASH! SLASH!

Hi there O.F. no go on the 100 just yet . You know the deal , to much to do and so little time . Well sounds good anyway ! I forgot I even had the thing at some stage ( how bad is that ) . Funny enough I cant decide on a plane , had a ugly stick in mind so I could show it off in all its glory and then found a plan for a ford flivver that I always have had a soft spot for so Im no closer . From word of mouth here at the club they seem like good runners but one guy had issues with the crank bending a wee bit but no doubt it took a dirt nap 1st . Check out " outerzone " for some free plans , just got them blown up to suit . Just got 2x OS 40 gf gassers so that has my attention as well along with a big ryan sta , a short cut kit of a big uglystik ( lasercut kits ) . Add that to a nemesis , a yak ( i think ) and some other kit just sitting there as well as all my planes that need to be worn out 1st so I can find the room so you can see Its a hard life . Dont fancy your drive across the desert , what with the B.O. and a mobile fart tank no wonder you'll be as high as a kite .The zorro out fit is ok just dont do it naked . We have laws over here for that . I know things in W.A. are a bit more liberal but we have standards . Cheers the pope

Yes old fart you watch out for the watermelons, especially the prune faced variety. Now I have been reading the comments on the G26 and wondering who the "underworldl" you would drive an a/c so big with such a small engine THEN the light switched on you weren't talking about the hot shot Supre Tigre I have rather one of those outdated Zenoahs. Oh well seniors moments happen. Popey I emphasise with your situation so I made a decision while "infirmed" to clear up all the outstanding desireable models by assembling all the ARF's (4) that I had under the bench and in some cases I plan to move the odd one on. Off course they will be less any Saitos I fit to them. Then I will be clear to get back to real building. On lase cut kits check out Wolf Models taking into account the current offerings in OZ you will not beat his service, cost and quality. He cuts to order and supplies high quality materials as well
