Thinking I might try some ATF for afterrun oil in my Saito, I looked at a bunch of it in the auto parts store. Dexron III, right, Bill and others? Any particular brand or price range? There was quite a variance.

Thanks,

Ernie

Right. Dexron III.

In order for it to be labeled "Dexron III" it has to pass the API certification. So, the least expensive brand labeled "Dexron III" is the best buy.

In effect, all of them come out of the same barrel, then get different brand names on the bottle.

It looks like the jaws will need a fair amount of grinding to fit, and the ends of the three arms sawed off to allow the front ends to pivot close in to fit the engine squarely.
Lee, I have that same set of HF pullers. If you have not checked them yet, the arms can be flipped. They in essence, have two seperate lengths that can be used.

very heavy mount, and the saito 82 is a very narrow motor, the 60-120 has to be almost as narrow as it will go for the 82

I think that W8YE's point was that the GP adjustable mount, reguardless of size, is a simple and mechanic proof mount.

I'll hold judgement on the mechanic proof-ness untill I've had a chance to use mine.

spec36:

The HS at 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 is in the ball park for an FA-72, but on what is usually the lean end of its range. Set the HS ONLY at full throttle, and do not change it trying to adjust the mix at lower settings. The LS is the main control up to about 1/2 throttle, and still affects the mixture as far up as 3/4 throttle.

With the HS set adjust the LS for a good transition, then keep leaning it a little at a time until the engine stumbles a bit on opening the throttle. When you get to this point open it a very little at at a time until the tumble goes away. All should then be fine.

The old "Quick and Dirty" mixture check is to pinch the fuel hoe, when the settings are right the engine should pick up a little rpm before falling off.

Why do you think having a DeWalt cordless drill gets you in the club?

Convert your drill, install a Saito steam engine. Then come back.

Haw again.

Gumhead,
What plane is that you have your Saito mounted on.
It looks interesting.

That is the drain for the oil. Connect fuel line to it so it will run out of the plane..
