I agree Mike and at a very good price.
I'm sorry about that Lonnie, I know how you feel, music is the best man made thing going

I gave up the guitar, I would get shooting pain from my finger tips to my elbow in my strumming arm.

here is my friend's channel, the first time he heard "Fish" he changed his style. he started playing in 71. I can't get him to get into planes.

Jim.
If he can still play like that.
Probably shouldn't consider a hobby with rotating blades.

After drumming for 12 yrs I "incoveniently" removed a few finger tips on my left hand. They sewed two of them back on but the third was irreparable. Had to learn to play grace notes all over again. Took about 2 yrs to get my chops back. Had I been a guitarist it would have been "game over".

Tore down my newly acquired fa120 fathead today. It was sold as is and looked like a very low time engine, even with only two pics in the ad. I figured, what the heck, the price is right. I finally caught a break on buying used engines because this fathead couldn't have had more than two tank fulls of fuel run through it. Might turn out to be a really nice looking collector's piece. New bearings on the way. I'll post pics when it's reassembled.

Nice Crunchy, both of them. My friend and I got a good chuckle holding that 120 fathead I just got up against an fa150. Dwarfed it!

Lonnie, there is a K&B 61 Twister with a Tuned Muffler over there on RCG, I really want it because of it's unique screw on head, and I want the Tuned Muffler for my HP GP 61 Rear carb. the seller says it has not been flown much, but it's exhaust port is black. so I enlarged the photos and it's case looks used a lot. and it's filthy. so I wont buy it. I really screwed up, I had the chance to buy one new in the box for $150 and I turned it down. stupid me

Jim you ratbag, a few posts ago you said you had given up on them smelly two strokes, specially the o0ne's attached to heli's. My daddy said leopards never change their spots

Lonnie when i first unwrapped my new fa220 zues i was struck by the level of finish on the engine. Koala poo loads of compression. Once i had it bolted down securely (because an fa115 had escaped previously) i primed it for the first time and hooked up the glow stick. Jeezuz jiminy those things bark at you.

I see you have the Eldon J. Lind Magnetic Building Board, on mine the plastic is aged and breaking. I've been slowly making aluminum uprights for some of the vertical stands. The board is two .125" x 24' x 8' steel sheets laminated together. I couldn't remove the original board from the work bench in Alexandria. I used contact cement to glue it down, it either bent or tore chunks out of the wood when trying to pry it up.

I take it that the 80-t has a rear vane pump.

A rotary vane pump? I've seen it all now

Is that a checked system? Where are the inlet and outlet nipples?
