Geri was in the Dahlgren Urgent Care Facility for about 3 hours, not from waiting though. They did a team effort and ganged up on her, in a good way, she came home with 5 med's and instructions to stay in bed but walk around the house for 15 minutes every hour. Thankyou for your hopes and prayers.

I did get to run the (66) for about 25 minutes, not long enough though.

Saito 62 with FG 11 cylinder, .66 cu. in.
Fuel===Wildcat 10% full synthetic
Plug ===Glo-Devil 4c special for Enya and Saito
Exhaust==Saito straight exhaust stub and revised muffler
Prop=====Xoar 13 x 6
RPM====9,840 with bursts to 9,950, one click leaner, after 25 minutes at 4,000 for 10 minutes and then various speeds for 15 minutes.
Idle rpm==1,700 for 3 minutes

These are the numbers for one of my 65's: Saito .65-N Xoar 13 x 6 10% Full syn. 10,050 2,000


As run

Lol. I couldn't "fly" without the Gypsy Queen that lives here with me. The Saito won't run without her turning the prop.

Of course the possibility exists that I could convert a 125-A, (31.7mm bore) into a 126 by installing an FG 21 cylinder, (32mm bore). Nah.

Cylinder===$168.06
Piston=====$72.96
RMJ ring=== $20.00
----------------------------
$261.02

Lonnie, I sent you a PM. to add. the tracking says the cylinder is out for delivery, you didn't need to send it priority.

thank you very much!!

I want you guys to know. I screwed up. when my mother's house was sold I didn't get much. but I gave $500 to the woman's shelter. where I screwed up was, because you guys have been so nice to me I should have put all your names on the money too. but I didn't think about that at the time, but that is how I feel about it today!!

have a good week my friends!!

It gives me great joy to know another Saito is going sky bound. That alone is enough thanks.

well thank you Gary! LOL I could lose some weight. LOL
as for the $500, I have seen what some men do to woman. and my daughter was bitten by one. this guy would have 2, 3 hidden girlfriends. he would live with a girl till the girl has had enough of him not paying his way. then he would leave her PG and move in with a hidden girlfriend. he'd do that over and over. he has 5 kids by 4 mothers. but at 31 karma got to his heart and made it stop solid! with all the rotten things I could say about him he did give me the 2 most wonderful granddaughters. and now my daughter-in-law is PG : ) I have never been more happy in my life!

Lonnie. I was not looking forward to honing the cylinder. thinking, and knowing it should be done as correctly as possible. how would I do it I asked myself. it hit me. I have 400 grit DA sandpaper and EXtra sticky doubled sided tape. put the two together, clean and dry my finger with Denatured alcohol. it should stick good to my finger so I should have good control over the sandpaper with my finger. I will first try it on the old cylinder. if it works I will do it on the cylinder I got from you.

Hello fellow Saito Heads. I have an issue. I bought parts from Adrian at CH to convert my mid manufacturer R5 to gas. Installing the Keleo ring revealed a exhaust spigot casting boss broken on one cylinder. OH CRAP! Hoping to find one nos or used to replace the failed jug. They are just GK 100 assembly's x5. Ideally a piston and jug would be the best.
if used parts are under one of your workbenches or boxes of part motors.
I am

willing to pay a fair price and pay for shipping. Can anybody help a fellow Saito nut out here?

Jim, I didn't look at the cylinder wall with high magnification but just using my reading glasses and a flashlight it looked new enough to not need honing. I doubt the cylinder saw more than 2 gallons of fuel. A new RMJ ring and some run time should make it a winner.

When it comes to Saito cylinder honing, please don't, I have never seen one that needed anything but a swipe with a mechanics towel.

Aaron , there are some new cylinders for sale on ebay iirc

https://www.ebay.com/itm/39425938170...Bk9SR_T2suzvYA

Dave can tell you about painting them black.


Are you certain they are 100 cylinders ? The FA-65 and FA-325R5 both share a 24.8 x 22.0 bore/stroke.
I have a new 325 radial cylinder on my FA-65 !

It is a dual plug version, yours if you need it.
I also have single plug .65 cylinder, not black but paintable.

Oh, it's honed at Saito. You're not seeing the forest for the trees. Put on your geezer googles and I think you'll see micro grit cross hatch scratches. They're as fine as frog hair.

Oh, I can see the the ID grind pattern. Produced by an internally orbiting, rotating stone.
Well aware of that. No glasses needed Junior
Part of the trade for the last fifty years.

You may need to re-focus your own readers since I clearly referenced 45 Degree cross hatch.
Also very familiar with that pattern . We honed thousands of cylinders using our shop's two Sunnen CK-10 power hones . Darn near that many using manually stroked Sunnen hone that was hanging from a counter balanced cable, before we bought the first CK-10. Along with cylinder head rebuilding, crankshaft grinding etc. Not my trade, just a side business for near twenty years. Not certain how many pistons you have fitted but done my share and then some.
Along with a few toy engines too

Gary. what about the engines like mt MVVS 35cc gasser that wasn't honed? is it just that they take longer to seat the ring/rings?
