Modeltronics, sorry, no luck on my end. Maybe Hyjinx or Hobbsy can find one in their Saito stash.

Thanks,

Mod, do you have the pipe and the nuts, I may have that muffler, affectionately called the Fire Hose Nozzle.

One of my few two strokes is a Super Tigre 4500 with Davis Diesel head, as you can see it shakes a little at 1,200 rpm turning a 22 x 12 prop. It's the only engine that can flex the B&B Viba-Loc mounts.

Saito 220 idle with large carb option.

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.

I'm sorry for your loss Mike, losing family members is tough. I've lost 10 family members in the last 8 yrs, half of them younger than myself, so I can relate.

Covid is real and can be deadly. I don't think Gary was implying that it wasn't real, just that many people fear it more than he does.

They say, "If you're not part of the solution, you could be part of the problem". I'm on board with that, better safe than sorry.

Speaking of which, why doesn't the media push hand sanitizer use with the same vigor as using masks? Viruses live on hard surfaces for hours. Think about how many people touched that door handle at the gas station before you did.

And then touch their face to adjust the mask. There is a lot wrong about what is being reported though, and that is what is getting people riled up. Not that the virus is fake, but the misinformation out there and the cover up of potential treatments and preventatives. A lot of it smells of big pharma.

There are also many unverified/untested documented diagnosed cases of covid. I know three people personally that have been diagnosed with covid and were put on quarantine due only to feeling bad and having elevated temperature. No testing was ever done. Yep, big pharma tactics.

There are some doctors in Australia that found Ivermectin kills the virus and cures the patient in 48 hours. It's an anti parasitic wonder drug. They are running trials now of it. When I first read it I was thinking, that sounds familiar, then realized it is what I have been treating the horses with for years for worms. It is not recommended though to dose yourself with horse wormer. What is even more interesting, in 2005 they discovered that Choloriquine prevents the spread of SARS-Cov by blocking reproduction in the lungs and helps get zinc to the lungs where it can destroy the virus. Thing is, both of these drugs are no longer patented, cheap to produce, and very inexpensive to sell, in fact some countries they are OTC. Makes you think, if these are effective, why aren't they being used?

The thing is, Chloroquine was tested with SARS-Cov back in 2005 and proved effective as a treatment/preventative and proven successful. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1232869/ The current virus is a spin off of the the virus they tests it on, SARS-COV, the current is SARS-COV-2. Take note of the link. It is an official government link, not some unknown link.

Chloroquine, a relatively safe, effective and cheap drug used for treating many human diseases including malaria, amoebiosis and human immunodeficiency virus is effective in inhibiting the infection and spread of SARS CoV in cell culture. The fact that the drug has significant inhibitory antiviral effect when the susceptible cells were treated either prior to or after infection suggests a possible prophylactic and therapeutic use.
Like I said before, something just doesn't add up.

Effectiveness will depend on how the virus has mutated from the original form and which mutation you catch. A virus is the fastest evolving organism known to man. They can literately change in a matter of days. This is why anti-viral drugs are so hard to develop and stay effective. This is why we have so may antibody resistant diseases like the new strains of TB. We are shooting at a moving target. That is why there are new versions of Flu vaccines every year. They pick the best 4 out and pray. Remember a vaccine that work 40% of the time is considered a success. If your in the other 60% you are SOL! At those odds you will never eradicate a virus. Back in the 60s they thought they had eradicated several diseases like Pollio only now it s back.

That is absolutely true. the mechanism for fighting the virus stays relatively the same though. The virus hit the lungs first, so that is where you fight it. Choloriquine helps to open up the lungs so zinc can enter to fight the virus. Zinc is a good known element for killing, or at the very least stopping reproduction of any virus. It works as a good defense for the common cold. As a preventative, the combination has shown promise, so why not use it? If it stops 60% of users from getting sick and stopping reproduction, and the vaccine helps the other 40%, would that not be a win/win? The suggested dose is 200mg twice a week of HCQ, and a daily supplement of Zinc as a preventative. Studies have show it to work.
