The spinner has been around a while the label taped to it still says Traplet on it and it definitely will need polishing. The spinner set came with a 97 mm diameter back plate, 75 mm tall cone, a 14" hex nut (Measuring 1 3/8" long or 35 mm if you prefer), and a 50 mm countersunk screw in need of having the threads chased. Now that I have bored you to tears, has anyone here put a scale spinner on a Saito .82 before? I was thinking maybe a ready made adapter like a TruTurn might work, any suggestions guys?
aah shucks nothing to it , and your welcome, I was just passing along the friendship,

about that spinner needing a polish, you could polish it on the engine if you could get it started withOUT a prop on

a tidbit of life: don't spend all that money setting up to go fishing, just buy the minnows and put them in the fish tank, then a few months later you'll have a feast

Remember that retarding the timing makes engines run hotter than advanced. Later timing means that the combustion process is exposed to more naked cylinder wall.

Just as weird as it was when it logged me off and would not let me reset a password to log back on.
It just logged me on and let me post without succesfully resetting the password.
Hello all
Guess the small g gods will abide my lurking and off kilter Saito banter occasionally.
Heard from the jokester from down under?
Wonder if he's been computer neutered too....

OK, I ordered an APC 12 x 5 to run on the Saito 60 twin, I broke my own rule to do that.

Not many of the Remote Glow adapters will fit the OS-f, the Sonic-Tronics will and the Sullivan will with a little jiggling.

The Sullivan fits an OS F plug very snug, yes. I like them. I've not tried the Sonic Tronics version.

Looks like Sonic Tronics offers a standard 5/8" adapter and a 1" adapter for deep recessed glow plugs. They offer the complete remote kits and also offer the plug adapters separately. Very cool!

Tip: The little angle bracket is flimsy on the Sullivan and can bend over time, especially if I press too hard while inserting the glow ignitor. I sand the inside radius of the bracket a build up a solder fillet on that inside radius just at the two outside edges. That trick almost doubles the strength of the bracket.

For your YS with the deeply recessed glow plug the 5/8" long one in your link may be difficult to install and remove. The 1" long one may work better.

OK am I being suspicious or does the Sullivan look like the Sonic Tronics the only difference Sullivan assembles it for you and charges accordingly?

It would appear so. I am going to use the Sonic Tronics on my next build. The 5/8" kits appear to be virtually identical with the Sullivan just costing more, perhaps just branding cost.

I use the short ones on everything. Simply solder a brass strip on the side and bend the end to form a tab.

Well, isn't that a fine idea.......for those who aren't soldering impaired. Might even weigh less than a longer glow plug adapter.

Hahaaa, good one Dave!

50 stuff, hmmmm. Not for a 50 but parts to finish converting a 45 MKII to an S. I'll check this evening and see what all I'm short.

Gentlemen
Im a long time follower of this thread with several Saito Fa 180s and one Fa150 flying 1/4 scale Tiger Moth, Pitts and Soitfire soon will be flying a retired Giles 202 also.

At this point I need a NIB Saito FA 82 to match the other one I just purchased on line to bring back my Top Flire B-25 to life.

Anyone has one??
Thanks
Rafeek

My Saito work yesterday did not involve a Saito, just to hope for one.

I did that all by myself.
