Dave, rather you would have bought it or not I know you would have wanted to see it, how about painting it a soft fuzzy red, not a dark red, you could sand blast the gold off the rocker covers and paint them black.

Yep. I didn't realize at first that it was Dave looking for a 5o, thought YOU were looking, hence the offer directed to you. If I had realized it was Dave, I would have just kept my mouth shut, and SHIPPED itDon't know about that kid not walking. I was 4 when I got the operation. Lost 15 pounds.




Here is another pic of the carb spacer for inverted installations where the tank is too high. As you can see, the carb centerline is raised a full 24 mm.

I will get a pic this evening. I just got back to work from home, could have taken a pic then but forgot.
Re 62 Exhaust, yes I'm looking for a factory exhaust setup. I've been sharing one exhaust system between two planes. I'm not apposed to something custom though.

Re 56 Case, love to see a pic. Thanks

This FA 50\"castor queen" spent a couple of seasons in a Sr Kadet before it was replaced with a new FA 62 about 10 years ago. Oiled and stored iunrun since. The other 50 was a spare, never run.

Is it this cat jim?


Dave it's good some of us ride v-twins and the woody moto guzzi geri bought for you looks neat but...woody may have a different meaning over here as in 'crack a woody' you don't ride very well when that happens.A nice looking fa56gk little bit battered as you say,please show us the paint stages.

Gary i think someone should be selling those inlet tract extensions,is there any variation in tuning or rpm.For me the cline works as a simple and effective fix if you have a plane with a badly positioned fuel tank.I might add that you can tune for peak rpm on the ground with a FULL tank,more power at the beginning of the flight and just the same at the end.

Thanks on the extensions. My style of flying and the reserve of power built in to the engine chosen seldom demand peak power. Dare I repeat but when that is an issue, YS will get the nod?
The extension solves the tank height problem without the complications of added hoses and gee gaws and that is fine with me .

Good to see someone else saw the irony about Dave's wife buying him a "woody".

Right now, only one that I need for the 62 on the Sr Kadet.
I do have some alternatives that could work great.
I have a Saito adapter from the 170 radial that will allow you to use the 12 mm exhaust parts from the other Saitos. I also have an early muffler/pipe from a Saito 65 that I can spare. This would work well in most cases

They both are nice Gary. Running a 10/12mm adaptor doesn't look bad either. The black one appears to be brass, does the pipe thread into the muffler or is it one piece? The other one is aluminum? Stainless?

Edit: Did some research online, sent you a PM.

(Georgey Gir) Great group and the first Australian group to have hits in Australia, the UK and the US.

PS, I am going to end up with a Saito 56 and a 50. I'll be walking on air.

The pipe is three or four brass parts, silver brazed together in to one piece with a swiveling flare nut The setup with the adapter is very strong. The muffler, one piece.
The aluminum setup is a Saito 62 muffler for the controline version.
That one is my last. Hangar 9 may have them in stock or, I can make one for you.

Can you let us know how you go about refinishing the fa56gk? not to critic just interested in how other people do it and how it looks.The seekers group i grew up listening to in NZ,had a schoolboy crush on judith durham she rang all my bells and whistles.Brings back memories for all the 60's and 70's long hair and flared pants brigade here,much gentler times.Gordon lightfoot and simon and garfunkel too.Looking back it seems like one minute i'm listening to that and the next thing you know ACDC gate crashes the whole party.I'm blaming all the parties

I certainly will Pete,, I'll use Dupli-Color products of course, Degreaser first. Judith is 75 now and her voice is as strong and clear as ever. They're currently doing a world tour to packed houses. I'll be getting a 50 to work on too.

Those mounts didn't come out of a package.
They came out of aliuminum bar stock

And learning from your previous posts, probably 7075 stock. Just curious Gary, are webs from the firewall mounts to the engine mounting arms not necessary when using 7075? Was the saddle added to cure flex problems from the lack of webbing? Would the mount weight less with 1/16" webbing and no saddle? I need to have custom mounts made so lots of questions.

The webs are usually used with plastic mounts to minimize the flexing that takes place at the t junction as well as at the drilled engine mounting holes.
The saddle greatly reinforces the mounting lugs and stiffens the bottom end,. The total package weighs less than the cast mounts as sold by Saito and Tatone.Also makes it far less likely that you will damage a lug in even the hardest crash.Webs would not help much in those respects.
The plastic backplate 82 often show up with out of round rear openings. Doesn't happen with this mount.

I'm in need of a valve guide for a Saito 120. Does anyone have a broken cylinder that I could harvest a valve guide from? A 120-180 cylinder would work as long as it had a good guide or two in it.
