Mine has the full cockpit, but there just isn't enough height between the seat and the top of the canopy for the pilot I have. from crotch to top of helmet it is 6", I need 5" to look right. It is a frenchy looking pilot with a white helmet and goofy mustache. Not sure how to describe how it looks, but reminds me of those frilly split mustachioed french from the early days.

That doesn't sound like scale body dimensions at all Todd. I mean, who has an abdomen that is 60% of their body height? 50% is normal for most humans. I'm 6'1" tall and have a 36" inseam. What kind of mutant pilot figure do you have?

Saito 80 with K-N on the right mounting lug
Fuel ========Wildcat 10% with 18% full syn.
Prop========Xoar 13 x 6
Plug========Glo-Devil 4c special
Exhaust=====Stock Cast muffler with all thread header
Exhaust=====RCSpecialties Turbo Header
Ambient temperature ==94 F
Max rpm====10,070 stock exhaust
Max rpm====10,390 Turbo Header
The engine wears the latest vent with the smaller hole.
Mac's 90 sized Quiet Tuned pipe used throughout the run, it does not effect rpm in any way.

Stock exhaust

Turbo Header

Plenty of oil flow with new, latest vent with small hole.

Pretty close to an 82 with an APC 13x8 on 15% nitro. I'd say that 80 is making good numbers.

Still waiting for a direct comparison between the two HC 65's.

Should happen today, the 80 though does not have the bumpy piston, it did not have the ignition rattle like my old 15.5 to 1 compression version has. Now I'm in the position of having to run an 82.

For reference, my stock 82 with stock exhaust peaks an APC 14x6 (sport) at 9200, APC 13x8 at 9750 on 15%. The higher rpm on the 13x8 due to the narrow blade design of 13" APC props.

There also two different APC 14x6 props, a Sport and a Pattern. The Pattern prop is actually closer to having a 5.5" pitch so it spins faster than the Sport.

My APC collection is limited to about 3 props. Those other sizes will have to be Xoar's.

I have a Xoar on my stock 82 at the moment. Can't say for sure what size I ended up using on my Sbach, 13x8 maybe? I'll check the size and get a peak number.

Ok, just a quick spin of the early 65 with the early carb.

Early Saito 65 with 12.7 to1 compression
Same fuel
Same plug as the above engine
APC 13 x 6
Max rpm with stock cast muffler=====10,050
Max rpm with home made muffler====10,010
The home made muffler is surprisingly quiet, it sounds mellow like the early baloney mufflers.

The solder joints did not melt.

They are only an hour behind, so 2:39 PM. I can't imagine they have lunch 2 hours after noon.

Jim, leave your number and wait for a return call. Seems to work best for me.

I may been misleading above, this is the engine I ran today with the muffler shown and the home made muffler I have another almost built but no header pipe yet.

I figured I was calling California so I figured they are 3 hours behind.

Lonnie you are correct. America is really changing fast

A better effort on the home made muffler, I have two, (left) header pipes for a Saito 182 coming from MacGregors.

Suit yourself, I don't see a darn thing wrong with the first one. If it bothers you to look at the hideous thing just send it my way.

For the vent nipple barb did you use a little piece of 3/16" brass tubing or did you use one of those little barbs they sell for 1/8" fuel tank lines?
