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.

yes it does
and yes the magnetic building board is awesome I have had it for a long time.
I need to do that too glue it down or laminate it to another peace. Also it would be nice to be longer.
I have plans to build a new build bench and I will make the modifications as needed

It started two times on the first back flip. The engine stopped after about 5 minutes because some dummy connected the fill line to the engine. I couldn't find the guy anywhere. Good for a laugh eh.

Unidirectional pump, no check valve needed.

It's not a fuel pump, it pumps air into the rear of the crankcase, oil and air exit the front vent. It was replaced with a diaphragm pump and later no pump at all.

Geek and Capt,

I hope I'm not out of line here, but noticed your discussion about a Saito 120 manual. I have an online pdf of one from 2005. Is this of any use to you?

Bob

Thanks Bob. That document does cover the 120S (Special).The engine parts list I'm looking for is for the plain old 120, otherwise know as a 120 Fathead. A beastly sized older design that is very different from any of the other big blocks.

that's right Pete, I'm a cat, and you know cats. they change their minds in a moment and are silent in the night when no one is around. but Pete, while you were gone I gave three 2st's away to Capt44, now see what you made me do, if I wasn't a cat I wouldn't have told on Capt44.
sorry Capt44 !!

but Pete, look at this baby, isn't she just lovely ??
