Just so you all know, to be a Maroon, you have to be a Queenslander of impeccable standing (or born here), and reside in the state, to be a blue (or cockroach), you only have to reside in New South Wales, or claim you are one. Thus that excludes both "the pope" and "old fart" from the exulted levels of maroon dom. Another good day has presented itself so once again I am forced to make my presence felt at the local field. Today it is the 65's turn in a 85% Bomber. I will test it with 15% nitro (Texaco) and a 15x6 prop and with 30%+ nitro and a 13x6 Bolly carbon (duration). Te eyes are working really well after the cataract operations and the flying is just getting better. Oh yes Old Fart I found a spare YS 63 so investigation into the problems with the other one are on hold until after the state champs.

On the contrary, the dual carb engines are easy to balance while the single carb engines are impossible to balance at idle.

There is only a slight performance difference @ WOT.

Did someone mention a 1/5th SIG Cub? I just got mine in the air after 2 years building it. Has a Saito 100 GK with Evolution 15x6, and it flies GREAT!

No,but this may ease the job a bit.After completely enclosing the assembled head/barrel and your hands in an airtight ziplock clear plastic bag(druggie bag here in aus) you need two bikini clad brunettes standing on either side of you.One should be holding your can of beer with the straw just below your lips,if you panic you are going to suck naturally the other brunette would be doing something like holding your cuban seegar

In these parts we employ well endowed bare breasted redheads for assistance.

Saito Bud's, I treated my self to about two Saito's worth of new Air Conditioner for my shop. The previous one was a temp until I could afford a larger one. At 8000 BTU it was woefully inadequate in a 22.5 by 22 foot room. This new Amana is 11,600 btu cooling and 10,800 heating with a heat pump and if needed resistance heat. It was 90 plus here yesterday and it ran very little in the Power Saver mode. And so quiet. It weighs 91 lbs but I got it in there by myself.

The key helpful operative here is the [plastic baggie that will catch the circlip as it flies out of the grip of the tool (NO!, NOT the blonde or brunette or redhead tool that may be assisting you). And, the circlip will fly away and you will never find it unless it is captured in the baggie. Ask how I know.

To more serious matters. We use naked women as assistants here, maybe that is why we are so relaxed. Tried the second YS out yesterday (one I o/hauled a couple of years ago) wouldn't start, problem after stripping it partially was that timing was out 20 degrees. Get ya ever time, I don't know how that happened but I now have 2 of them in bits one series 1 and one series 2. So guess what they go into the tupperware containers and out with either the new Saito 62 or the ever reliable 65. I get an extra 5 seconds engine run over the YS more later. Oh yes the pull off fuel line works with that little diesel to shut it off. 12,500rpm is no longer as terrifying in the little beast.

Barry that only happens some time after you have drunk the glass of wine,it's like expecting a saito to pull peak revs straight out of the box before it's had any serious nitro.

Popey i talk about saito's in a general sense.Like what it feels like to hear one go by when it's well tuned at any throttle setting,if my posts annoy you or anyone else say so here or complain privately to the moderators,they will sort it out or give me a hint and i will retract anything that reasonably could offend a lot of people.Would you post a couple of pix re your saito's and what you think of them? and by the way i reckon you missed the humour in sr's post completely,redheads trump blondes and brunettes,fully clothed..

Ok a follow up to yesterdays problems with the YS. It was timed incorrectly and after following the recommended method for timing in the YS manner it was still crap. SO pulled it apart and timed it as I would a Saito and guess what 12.900 with a 13x9 APC (it was relaxing on the bench) and 30% nitro. Could not ask for more. Now in the drag racer and will be flown tomorrow to check both the driver (pilot / aimer / what ever) and the aircraft out. Latest thoughts on Texaco engines is moving back to the 50 as it can be tuned for better economy than the 56. I am thinking that muffler design has a contribution here. The old cylinder types appear to be better for this purpose that the new "pot" style. BTB we do not use muffler pressure for Texaco and if I use a 4 stroke it will be my 30.

Thanks for the link interesting conversion! I know a LHS owner that has been experimenting with the glowplugs made for gasoline engines in other glow engines to see what works so an ignition pack isn't necessary. I am waiting for his report.

Oh by the way what kind of Triumph are we talking about here two or four wheels? I had the four wheel variety, a 59 TR3A great car! I garaged it in winter and there was always the excitement of discovery of what broke when I taking it out for the first time in the spring. The broken Clutch master cylinder spring was a particular interesting event on year. I'll spare you the joke on why Englishman drink warm beer.

Old Fart sorry to hear about the hardrive, another reason airplanes are better than women!

In view of the Aussie requirements to be a Maroon I shall refrain from making the suggestion we start a Maroon brotherhood!

Aussies are a strange lot then my judgement could be somewhat colored from having a close friend from Tasmania (the Arkansas of down under) and we all know nothing good ever came out of that bunch.

Bet he'll need to raise the CR.

HI, GUYS.. I run all my Saitos on plain old 15% nitro and the same oil. Works great. On another subject, check the four cylinder/crankcase bolts periodically. MY .72 started running rough and losing power.. finally quit in the air. I landed and turned the engine over, noticed the cylinder was wobbling. Upon further check found all four bolts loose and that the pushrods had dropped out of the rocker arm adjustment screw pockets. The pushrod was just pushing on the rocker arm itself. Now I have lockwashers under the four bolts.

Because when you modify it for speed you still have a wet cylinder design that lets you rebuild it as often as you like. Mine had the electric overdrive so I could idle and do 55! Now if you want a real laugh check out the "Thorsen Supercharger" kit they built for it! They made it sound like it was a bolt on but you better know a good machine shop when you get it! I didn't have that but I had a factory removable hardtop along with my soft top and two sets of side curtains.

I run 15% Nitro in all my engines 2 cycle and 4 cycle and they all eat it up with no problems.

Furgeson held several important patents for tractors, none related to the engine however. Here is my '66 TR4a:

I had a '59 Frogeye in '62 and a '64 MGB in '64. A '66 Porsche in '66. Then got married.

I used to eat Triumps with my 240Z except for one modified by a workmate. It was a Spitfire with a 3B rotary engine fitted. Testing day again today, checking out the YS and a Saito 62 for performance. BTB my standard fuel for ALL my engines I use in sports machines is 15% nitro 20% oil (synthetic) and the remainder methanol. Works well and fuel for all models used on a fun day is in one bottle. Fuel costs for home brews is currently running at $7.50 per litre if any one is interested. That is using drag racer nitro (expensive) as opposed to the cheap watery chinese nitro.
