No way I'd post a vid on ebay of an engine with no compression! A few drops of dna or laquer thinner would have freed up those stuck valves right quick.

Anyone have an SAI5091b oring kit for an FA45/FA45S/FA50 that they can part with? Backordered until mid Nov.

What is your attraction to the 65's? Is it just the price you're getting them for?

I'm not sure if it's common knowledge so I'm just throwing this out there. The FA62 has a smaller footprint, puts out almost 10% more HP and weighs 130 grams less than the FA65.

itís not just the 65 that iím After itís a Saito!!!
The 62 is a vary good engine and vary hard to get at a decent price. Kinda like the 30 open rocker and the 220.
I have one 62 I got lightly used and payed almost new price for. Because I didnít have one and they only come up for sell once in awhile. Like the 220 and the 30.
i few months ago a guy was selling a par of 100 GKís 100 bucks a peace. Yup I bought them both.

The 65 like the other smallest engine in each block size is super smooth. Of course we can no longer get the smallest size in the 62 block size. The 50 for example.

Right Crunchy, it's a Saito. That's good enough. If you're interested in a restored FA62 I've got one I'd let go. PM me.

Anyone have suggestions for loosening up a carburetor barrel on a Saito 1.80? It's been dormant for four years while I diverted to rebuilding Honda Trail 70's and S90's. No corrosion that I can see with the back plate off. Valves were a bit gummy, but now move freely.

I tried some heat on the casting, PB Blaster, carb cleaner, etc. with no luck. Presently, it's in a mixture of acetone and tranny fluid.

heat and just keep working it. I take the throttle arm off so you have a harder something to grab on too.

Same here, a good deal of heat to liquefy the castor and channelock pliers on the barrel, not the throttle arm. I feed in 3in1 oil while I heat. So far it's worked every time.

Pliers need to be kept in a separate room from engines.

i was at the Field awhile back.
I was changing the prop and I couldnít find my wrench well at least I new were it was but fellow anal retentive flyer was standing there so I just had to grab the pliers just To watch him go into coronary shock and run over to his field box and grab a crescent wrench for me because he couldnít let me use a pair of pliers. Lol
the other pilot knew what I did and we both started to laugh at his experience. After he went over to bug someone else.

ok would it make you feel better if I called it an adjustable spanner.
No I use a Higley or true turn hub the Higley uses a 7/8 wrench and true turn itís just a rod

A well trained British " Engineer" would sooner use a proper box spanner. Of course, when they stamp a size marking in a spanner, the marking is for the bolt diameter, not the actual A.F. or "Across Flats" dimension as used with SAE and Metric wrenches.
And a 5/16 diameter Whitworth screw or nut uses a different across flats wrench than the 5/16 diameter "BSF" or "British Standard Fine". Working on those Brit Bikes, cars and a few aircraft engines at too early an age can warp one's mind for life!

Perhaps you have noticed?
