Everywhere, search on "D-10 WAT kit" or "K-10 WAT kit". The genuine Walbro carb kits cost more than the clone kits. I have never ordered a clone kit, so no opinion on them.

Thanx, did check Iron Bay web site - to no avail. Guess should have checked further.

The Cline regulator is a copy of the regulator section in a walbro carb. It uses standard walbro parts for rebuild.

The iron Bay uses a diaphragm and a Schrader valve (tire valve). I'm not sure which carb kit would have the correct replacement diaphragm. Don't know on the Schrader valve either. Maybe Dave knows?

I don't know what a whole kit cost. but you can buy just the diaphragms with gaskets. Google Images is your friend.

buy walbro diaphragms - Google Search

hey guys, as you most likely know the glue on World Models covering is nothing great and it is not applied evenly. well I am testing that Felt & Foam Tacky glue. to thin it out I tested it with mixing it with Rubbing Alcohol and with Denatured Alcohol.
it didn't mix well with rubbing alcohol, but it did mix and thin-out well with the denatured alcohol. I am only testing it with popsicle sticks. if it hardens well and is strong enough, I will test it on the covering. but the real test would be in the sun at the field, that is knowing that if the glue gets too hot it can become soft. anyway it's worth a try.

Check Valves

OS FS 200 check valve, holding 45+ minutes

Check valves, L to R, old Hobby-Lobby, unknown, OS FS 200. The blue one leaks down in 3 minutes.

Works flawlessly.

Roto Flow improved fuel bibs.

Spare

Thanks Dave, good info.

$20 for the OS
$10 for a YS

How many PSI did you use to test the Check valves?

And do they all have the same cracking pressure?
Do you really need a zero bubble check for this application?

I used 20 psi since that's what a single squeeze of the Sullivan fuel bulb makes. The 18 psi shown is after a 45 minute wait. I shot some Corrosion X through the blue one and it is now a zero leak check valve. It would take a much finer gauge to measure the cracking pressure. When I run the 56 today I'll set the new carb up without the Cline. I bought the carb body from MacGregor's and the barrel and spring from Horizon..

Dave, looks like 18 kpa (2.6 psi) in your pic. That's really good that the check valves hold that low pressure for that long.

It's actually 18 psi leaking down from 20 psi in the 45 minutes I let it stand. I now have a Sullivan check valve to try also.

Looks like 0-70 kPa in red/0-10 PSI in black to me. I have a similarly marked gauge that's 0-35 kPa/0-5 PSI.

Sorry, you are so right. red and black are so easy to confuse.

Sullivan check valve.

Those are the checks that I use with YS engines.
Sullivan is a quality company, one of the best we have remaining!

what I have learned today about balancing model planes is very important. a must read!

when balancing, if you put foam under your plane so it will protect your cowl & canopy if the plane slips off the balancer make sure the foam is not up-against your canopy, cause it will screw up your balance for sure! LOL

Is it me or does it seem like all the lessons learned in this hobby are done the hard way?

Sounds like there is more to that story

Probably said enough. Thanks for the "reminder".

Build a vannesa rig for 8 or 10 bucks. The only downside is you won't have any horror stories to tell.

Oh thats not true. I use a VR and let me tell you, one slip and it doesn't slide off the balancer, it CRASHES to the floor! I don't remember what I was doing, but I dumped the Corsair to the ground from 4 feet up and broke the rudder. Aside from that fumble, 100% VR is the best way to balance, unless you are one of those math wizzes who can use scales.
