Two more sets of Boca bearings arrived yesterday for big block Saitos, 120's in this case. That will leave me with an extra set.

Still waiting on my Boca shipment for the 120 fathead and a couple of twins. I think their free shipping goes by horse and buggy.

fathead, Fathead, FATHEAD! Speaking of which, someone needs to buy Gary's fathead on rcg. It's a good deal with extra carb and extra complete cylinder assembly.

Seems like I may have heard that (about 50 times) before!

Sure wish that bus had brought them here.

I just donít think I can follow this group anymore.
with all these two letter cuss words Itís really getting annoying and Iím finding it very offensive for someone who lives and breathes Saito engines, Well at least like them a whole bunch.

Absolutely

No need to be limited by someone else's bad experience. My experience with YS goes waaaay back to the late 1970s, about the same time as I bought that cobby, tinny little open rocker Saito 30.

Even back then, the YS quality was outstanding. The fit, finish and engineering are second to no one.

Agreed, the fit and finish of my 91AC is just as good, better in some regards, as any of the 4 strokes I've worked on. The engineering is superb.
On the other hand the end user needs to, has to even, know more about the theories of IC engine operation to tune and debug them. It's not enough to just turn a couple of needles and to keep valve lash adjusted. Supercharging ads new elements that work in tandom to squeeze peak performance from a 4 stroke therefore defects causing performance problems are at times not easily identifiable.
That said, a good running YS supercharged engine is a joy to run and there are plenty of testimonials regarding its durability.

Planes equipped with YS supercharged engines can be said to be imo the polar opposite of electric powered planes where maintainance and debugging are concerned. Either you enjoy tinkering with them as I do, or you don't.

I have never advocated one engine or prop manufacture above another. We're big boys and can choose what works for us. It's all good, no need to oppress.

The longer you run them, the less you find yourself twiddling them.
The 91-110-115 series AC engines I have run were set in the spring, fuel components pulled, cleaned and stored in the fall . Back to spring and repeat. Very little, if any twiddling at all in flying season. Pressurize the tank with a few flips, open the carb for a couple more. Turn on the glow power and a thumb to forefinger back flip of the spinner at high idle and it starts. You can slam the throttle forward and fly it or walk away and marvel at the low, steady idle until the fuel is gone.

If it's not too much trouble, fire up one of your old 91AC's, put a 15x8 or 16x6 on there and report back what it peaks at. That would be very useful info for me and much appreciated.

BTW, I'm not a needle twiddler, more of a set it and forget it kinda guy.

I just rebuilt a Saito 120 Dual Plug engine. I am looking for the muffler that goes to it. It is a long cylindrical muffler with a 14mm thread. Is there any source for old Saito parts?
Thanks,
Pete

I had figured that out...and I think I have your email too. Let me know what you find out. I would really like to get it back to original shape.
Thanks

Or for those who just cannot do the others

Super Tigres were my favorite engines before I outgrew 2 strokers altogether. Still have one frozen in a block of ice in our deep freeze. It is (was) a brand new X-40 RIRE pylon engine.

Just mixed another batch of fuel. Same as last batch this Spring, 14 gallons. So, if all goes well we will have burned 28?gallons before winter hits. Biggest engine this year were the Saito 82s.
Gave all that 30% Wildcrap Fuel to my Heli Buddy, also named Gary but he hasn't been around much. Seems quite a few are in fear if the Fauci manufactured Flu and are hiding in their cellars.

Still like to get over and float the sweet running R5 over your field this year.

Bunch of Saitos too.
Lots of R3s

Well,

Rather than go to work with my face behind a Fauci freak mask all day, I just walked away. Maybe when folks quit swallowing all the Chinese Epidemic Inc stuff, I will pick up another job or two.
Only 70, too young to be not working a job or two!

Yessir, just pick a day and come on out. Lunch is on me. If I can, I will bring Super Buildef Dave out that day. He no longer builds or flies but has a basement full of nice, big planes. His Traveaire Mystery Ship would love a big radial on the nose!

Lonnie, I was awaiting promised payment. If I had offered it for ten bucks, I bet I would have had at least one person wanting it for $8!


Modeltronics,

I had a few of those. IIRC, I sent the last one to Hobbsu.
