Jinx, I don't know where you live, but if in the USA maybe you could send the 90-t my way and I'll try to fix something up to make it usable. It would only cost you the postage.

Hey Guys
Once again and as always, this group is not only scholarly but charitable.
I am planning on continuing the reassembly and running the FT without the broken crank vane. It ran before ok and I am positive the damage to the missing pin was old, so it wasn't operational anyway during those " normal" hours on it. Just effectively a rear vented case cover.
Would do different if a part was on hand, but n/a.
Your musings all concur with my field experience on this one. Thanks for the Charity.

Oh yes. I think law enforcement taught me that lesson early on in my career as a youthful goofball. . I don't look good bald . Must be the other bending metal referenced does not lock to the bending tube as it is drawn, while maintaining it's rod like form.
Hmmm

What about filling the tube with molten lead making the bend and then heating the lead to remove it. ( I have easy access to lead and a smelter pot)
Drilling in the angled spigots from the exhaust headers would certainly be a lot easier if the tube was full of lead when the drill entered it.
Very, very difficult to remove the lead as it will plate the imnside. Once leaded, proper silver soldering is impossible. I can give you Cerrobend low temp alloy but believe me it is not by itself a magic bullet. Also, the Cerrobend requires a specific procedure for melting and filling that must be followed. The tube walls supported by formed blocks during thhe bend. Way too much to explain in a few paragraphs. Do a web search on Cerrobend, look up the official instructions.

hey guys, this thing happened to my daughter Friday. (in short) my daughter with her youngest was in the store, at the register with $130 in food and she found her C-card was missing. she could not pay for the food. well the man behind her said he would pay. and she told the man "she couldn't let him do that" but the guy said "he was told to pay it forward, let me do this for you". and he paid. the guy went off and she doesn't even know his name.
this was a real big-big thing to my daughter, she had tears in her eyes as she told us.

Michael, do you have any of these Saito 56-B engines, they are really rare but do exist.

Those "good dilemmas" are fun to think about though.

Truth be told I lost a black and gold box .80 for about 3 months and found an old split case Super Tigre .60 I didn't know I had. I mention the color of the box because you would think it would be easy to spot but it wasn't. I had it hid in plain sight too!

lost a pumped, dual plug 120, I found it in the box with the 120 fat head. Maybe I was thinking they would have little Saitoís that would grow to be big Saitoís.

Harbor Freight sells a decent one.

"Totally Awesome" cleaner from the Dollar Store is a good all around soup for the bath. Pick up a can of Comet Cleanser at the store too. I add some to the Awesome at times for the tough jobs

Jumping in here as I have purchased a Seagull Models Nieuport 28 from an estate sale. It's specs call for 20-28cc gas, maybe 16-17" prop. The original owner has a big electric motor on it. That has got to go! I am very interested in having this airplane sound correct for a WWI fighter. My experience with Saito four strokes is all smaller glow ones from 70-100 size and has been fantastic, absolutely no complaints, ever. My current fun fly plane has a 72 with a crack pipe (radial exhaust pipe) on it and sounds and runs awesome.
So, in the larger sizes I now have a choice of glow or gas. I know gas is more economical but it is not like I will be flying this biplane a whole lot. And I fly 90 size glow helicopters so I always have gallons of 30% nitro on hand. I would like to know more about the running characteristics and sound quality of the big singles. The smaller ones are the 125A or G21, then the 150B (which is not offered as a gas model?), and at the larger end the 180B or G30B. Weight is not a consideration, I will still need a ton of nose weight.
Thanks for any advice. I have found over the years that some engines are just real sweethearts so that would trump every other consideration.

I'd suggest either the 150 or the 180,on glow. Neither needs 30%, they will run perfectly on 10%.The 125 would serve also. I am currently mounting a 125-a on a Sig 110" Rascal.

A rotary radial would be just the ticket. Find one on u tube. Itl blow your mind.
Crazy engine design but that's what they came with. Only seen one modeled. I have a seven cyl radial on this BUSA neuport 28. Looks close to the original if you don't know the difference.
. Builder / owner had a watt can on it too.
Electric motors start easy, but they have no soul.
Look much nicer with a round engine that breaths FIRE.
Or a Saito 180 maybe. Love them Saitos!

The Seagull Nieuport finishes out at 12.5-13.5 lbs. Saito FA150, FA180 (overkill), FG30 or FG33R3.

Super sweet Todd! I'm afraid mine will get a Saito Single but would still look good with the dummy radial. Where did you get it?
