Also did you say the carb kit for the 50 is the same as the 62. I have a couple 3 more 50s that could use a going through and maybe one might get a paint job.
I'd love to have a shot at restoring one of your old 50's crunchy. Send me your worst one.

A fellow in our club has one in the box he was trying to sell. I think he still has it and $25 should get it. If you really want one, I can see if he still has

Oh, the carbs are the same except for the earlier style. I bought 4 new carbs from a chap on eBay a few years back, Plenty of 50 " parts clunkers" here. If you come up short on something, I can take a look. Always picking up old cinders at the swaps.





Dave, I just picked up quite a few metrics yesterday, the bin was getting low. I usually toss all the screws when going through an engine. If you ever need specials or hard to find "Metrics Unlimited" is right outside the Tech Center when I leave from work. Gotta say they have spoiled me as they have just about everything metric and inch, including the metric hex stock I use for exhaust parts like elbows, flange nuts, jam nuts among other things. Good prices too, no waiting!

If you ever need anything metric and having trouble finding it, let me know.


Lonnie, not sure when but still on que.

Here ya go, I bought mine at Toledo, he had sold out very quickly so he shipped one for free shipping.
Bottom tap is good terminology too. I just slowly ground the point off so as to not get it hot.

Good point, don't want to anneal the tap by over heating it during grinding. Starting with a pre tapped hole bottom tapping works good. I start a newly bored hole using a taper tap (with steel) or a plug tap (with aluminum) and finish with a bottoming tap. Good practice.

I'd like to edit a post I made earlier about cams for small/medium case sized Saitos but this forum won't allow. I didn't mean to say that rocker ratios were changed between 50-120 sized engines, I have not researched that, I meant to say valve size but sometimes my brain and fingers aren't in sync. Sorry about that.

The point is that I removed the point.

I received the Rascal 110 yesterday, the box is taller than I am. I was away at a family reunion and haven't gotten to dig into it yet. The new screws came too. Fun is coming up.

Congrats on the Rascal 110 Dave, supposed to be a really great flyer, hope it is for you.

I think I mentioned above that I had the Rascal 40 with a PAW .40 Diesel, it flew great. The cowl was so tight I had to remove the cylinder and exhaust, install the crankcase, then the exhaust ring, then bolt the cylinder on. That sure beat bashing the cowl. The cowl wood was spongy from the start and after a few years of soaking up Diesel exhaust it just caved in.

From all vids I've watched the Sig Rascal 80 may the best of the best? Super light weight for it's size and a Saito 56 yanks it around like nothing, Your 180 outta yank the 110 off the ground with less than a 20ft. roll out, should be a real hoot!

Yep, very good terminology, that is what they are called.
You can buy bottom taps that are ground specifically for the job. Industrial tool suppliers have them in stock.

When grinding tools, keep a pot of water at the wheel and dip the tool often to keep it cool.

Off to the field....

Lonnie,

Very sorry to hear anything like that. It is way too early in life for sure.

What part of Washington are you going to?

Yes, indeed if only we could get together, in person and spend a day or two at the field. I look back at all the fine people and great times, both at the field and off that this hobby has produced. So many more that we work with in the groups that I would like to meet.

Take care.

Gary

We just attended the funeral of a family friend. Really good guy, loved to restore cars, and had a Body shop that as renowned and respected, and was also a trustee of the local fire department. He got cancer, and died at 59. That is only 4 years older than I am. It's like a slap in the face, a Hey, That could be YOU kind.

I think it is part of why I am doing what I can to enjoy life now, never know if you will be around to spend the savings or retirement funds.


What I want to know about the Rascal, was it just my plane, or do they all have a very slow roll rate?

Lonnie, when you get one of those 50's please take note of the cam box inner dimensions, when disassembling this one I noted that it had no spacer washers on the cam support shaft. None can be installed there either, as you can see in the picture the gear slot is narrower on the A series box.

I have the 80 and the 110. They both roll stupidly slow. A Sr Kadet will roll faster on rudder only

I wish I had known that before I spent all that money on the 168. NOT my kind of plane. I am used to what my LT-40 does, which is not slow by any means, has a faster roll rate than the Something Xtra at low rate. When you are used to that, it is easy to screw up and crash the Rascal like I did. I still have to get my SSE out and find out why the engine won't start. Either my glow igniter died, or the glow plug did. I also need to find out why it screeches. A Saito 72 should not screech.

The cam box on the left was a GK cam box, an hour in the crock pot on high easily made it plain.

Yeah the 168 needs full deflection on the ailerons with a little rudder mix to get it to roll any kind of fast

If I had known that before the engine quit, I would have landed it on the field and not in the corn 200' before the runway.
