Do you run a 16 x 8 or steeper on the HC 180, I'll have to experiment but I think the 180 should turn a 16 x 8 three blade pretty well. thanks, Dave

Dave, did ever get a chance to run a head to head test of the stock vs TH muffler on your 82?

the 180hc will turn a 16-10 at 8900.
The prop that seems to work good is a 17-8.
I wish I could get one in the air and play with props.
As soon as the ignition shows I will get to check that out. SrTelemaster150 has some good recommendations in prop size’s. But I like to run a little high on the RPM’s. Also the 180HC will turn a 18-6 wide around 8000.
And yes the 180 should turn a 16-8 three vary well.

I may have enough CHI stuff here to ignite the 180, I'll dig into that in a few minutes.

That 8,900 is good number.

Saito 180 RPM "Glow" numbers,,
you guys can go to RCU's Tach Readings page for more info on what the Saito 180 should be turning at

you will find number for the APC 17X8 to be between 8,800 to 9,600 depending of fuel and glow plug, now add ignition

Jim

GroB Luftschraube
I have the trigger wheel for the 180 but no Hall Effect Sensor that will fit, I'll get one though. That 18 x 6 Graupner is a big wheel.

Saito 180 with A on the right lug
Prop=====Graupner Super Nylon 16 x 8 three blade
Plug=====Fox Miracle, a well used one
Fuel====Wildcat 10% with 18% full syn.
Exhaust=Late cast muffler non re-vised
Max rpm, one click rich of lean slow down==8,340
Idle=====2,100, I rebuilt the carb, LS adjuster not fine tuned yet, just close.
A fine engine, thanks, Cap.

Doubt the muffler will turn up. The new owners of the old house are too lazy.


No big deal.

I may have another pair if you need them.

Sorry about the screw up, PM notices don't always show up as Jim has mentioned.

Would you like a 45 degree adapter?

Thanks Gary. You know, I'm not sure yet how I'm going to mount the 82 in the Strega. Probably inverted if there's room in the cowl to exit the muffler out the bottom. In that case I'd think a 90° would work better. Won't be able to get to that build for a while yet. I'm also seriously contemplating stepping to a 100 or 125 to give the Reno Racer a good kick in the pants.

Sure thing.
I also make 90 degree elbows. They are very strong, made from 7075 billet aluminum.
The Saito are well known for breakage so I went right past the next move up, 6061 and use the 7075

yee yaa, now your taking !
if you remember that video I posted of the Spitfire with the Saito 100 Inline Twin, it sure was a big air plane, your Reno should be a faster plane

Jim

FA115 SIDE mounted in a 55" cmpro midget mustang that badly needs a bath and a haircut or a holiday

Lonnie you could also look at the fa115,i'd have to check but it is much smaller than both the fa125 and fa100,sr tele has all the figures.

ps jim nicely tuned saito in the spitfire and the guy flying it handles the engine well.

Sweeeet. It needs to be in my hanger!

I'll check into the 115. Seems like there was some reason I would skip past that one and the 120 ( too heavy) but I cant recall.

Nice fillet, they do not break there.
They didn't make many 115's, I had one briefly.

The Turbo Headers and Elbows have a nice fillet.

whats a drag is I have a 115 it’s in a plane it’s been flown but I haven’t even been there yet.
Been trying to get down to Texas and pick it up. I seen a bad video of the plane flying and the 115 sounded great!!

Gary made these in 9 mm on the engine end so I could put TurboHeaders on the FA 40 a's. And the little 30 if took the notion.

Mike, I cranked up the 180 yesterday, it started on the 1st flip, it's real torquer and smooth. I ordered a new cast/revised muffler for it.
