Give us some ideas and maybe one of us will have a worthy trade..? I hate to give up engines, but getting something new is always fun.

I am open to suggestions, I fly just about everything from .049 to 1.00 . This engine isn't perfect the head is missing a few fins but even without a ring the compression is stellar. Ideally I would love to find another Norvel 40 because mine died and I really liked it. I gifted it to a friend to fix his broken one.

I have a couple Super Tigres in my fleet; my favorite is the ST-75 that I have in my 4-Star 60. As much as I hate the muffler setup, I love the power and reliability of this engine. I'm recovering the fuselage on the plane, so when I'm done I'm switching to a Mac's muffler (made right here in Sacramento), so I don't have to deal with the muffler coming off or rotating around its mount during flight. I also have a ST .61 that I flew only twice in my Super Sportster 60 (crashed the 2nd flight due to a component failure), and that engine was a total beeyotch to get started. Even after break in, it was very temperamental, much like a half-Italian former girlfriend of mine. I still have it and may get it up and running for another 60- size sport plane. Several years ago, I also came across a pair of ST-34's on clearance at the LHS, one with a muffler and one without, so I picked these up because I thought they'd work well in a Pica Duellist kit I had bought. I'm going to ask Mac's to make a pair of headers for these, and I think they'll work well in a pair of Sig Kavalier kits that I'll probably build just for fun.

I have 1X S29 ring, 1X S45 ring, 1X G51 ring, 2X GS45 ABC, 1X X60 ring, and 1X S90K ring. Most are good runners, one GS45 still NIB. All Italian and the runners do it well. Have the other .45 converted to diesel. Turns a 13x6 at 10,800rpm as a diesel. The G51 and S45 are for sale. G51 missing carb, S45 is complete with muffler and carb - has new bearings. Turns a 10x6 APC at 14,700rpm on 5% fuel. I love ST engines. Their ABC engines are my favorite.
