about my 120.

no badge, and, it has a 90-degree, threaded Intake manifold so the Carb is offset.
having a threaded manifold makes me think it is an S type.

I will get Pics later.
thanks for the help!

The bigger looking beauty on the left is the Fathead model, the one on right is an S model.

Howdy Mike, good to see you fired up and well. Perhaps it's time to relax the rule that POTUS must be American born! then that would broaden the talent base and let people like Greta Thunberg run for office

When did this country become such a country of whining losers? They are worse than the southern confederates that couldn't get over the union beat them. They are an embarrassment to the men who defeated the chief loser's idol in 1945.
lol. The facts evade you.

not one court herd a case …. all dismissed due to technical or standing issues. The courts clearly stated once counted, the count will stand

But courts have spoken in dozens of case stating that the illegal changes to voter procedures, followed amd implimented, especially in AZ, PA, WI are illegal and will not happen agin

ballot drop box’s now in voter locations and monitored. Zuckermsn will be sued amd the illegal boxes he set up
are gone.

PA alone had 1.2 million illegal mail in ballots… The constitutional process was tossed out by bureaucrats.

35k dead folk in Michigan voted in last election… they MI Dems are still in court to keep on them on roles.

fraud on either side is bad. One vote, one citizen No proxi and no mass mailing so the courts have spoken.

Fraud and there was plenty of it

botu line the current admin has truly mucked up life

Gary, notice something about those 2^ in your pic? LOL
A) well unlike the engine on the left. my engine is like the one on the right! both the Intake and Exhaust manifolds on my engine are on the back side of the engine LOL
B) on my engine the cooling fins between the Rocker Covers are short like the engine on the right in your pick.
C) and. my Carb is the same as the one on the right in your pic.

thanks for the help!!!! NOW I can have a gender party LOL

If you ever find a carb like the one on the left.. grab it. That is one of Saito's finest.

Agreed, I've had a couple of those 120 Fatheads and the carbs are more fine tunable than a standard 2 needle design.

What does the venturi size measure on yours?

We already have it wasn't productive and Saitos are a lot more fun!

What years were the fat head 120s made? It's big and heavy but it sounds like an engine worth looking for.

Big Blocks on glow fuel for a B25 - 91”

FA- are small blocks. More power, less weight, more fragile…. Am i corect on this

Big blocks - pre FA
more robust gears and bearings. Less power…. But by how much?

project calls for a pair of 20-26 cc amd neeeds a 3-blade prop for scale. So a set of 125 big blocks, one counter rotation should do the trick. 150 will fit but there is a point of over power.
( Weight n vibration & fuel consumption ).

Is my head screws on right?

All Saito 4 strokes that burn glow fuel are designated FA. It stands for "Four stroke" "Alcohol". That includes small, medium and big block Saitos.

All Saitos that burn gasoline are designated FG. Which stands for "Four stroke" "Gasoline".

See answer above. The power to weight ratios are very similar between all single cylinder FA engines. Choose your engine displacement based on required power. Big block Saitos do have a more durable valvetrain than the smaller Saitos, namely the tappets.

As mentioned on the other thread on RCG, counter rotation is not required for our model twin engine aircraft or full scale twin engine aircraft. Many twin engine aircraft do not use counter rotating engines.

The FA-125 is not a big block Saito, the FA-120, FA-150 & FA-180 are big blocks as well as the FG-30. The FG-36 is the FA-220 counterpart, a different crankcase design from the other big blocks.

Keep in mind That when a model manufacturer specifies a 2 stroke gasser 20cc-26cc engine an equivalent 4 stroke glow engine will need to be approx 1.2 times larger displacement to produce the same power. An equivalent 4 stroke gasser will need to be approx 1.4 times larger displacement.

Lobbed an RMJ ring on the piston of my previously mushy compression 220. Instant seal, as always. It should make better top end power and idle more consistantly now. We'll see, it's pleasantly plumping now.

Next candidate is my 200Ti, same trouble, gallons of fuel run through but still mushy.

That's the slinky, sexy version 120.

Being a gas conversion from the start it's likely you won't find a speck of rust anywhere inside.

That said, the "fatty fatty no friends" 120 makes a fantastic gas conversion engine.
