RE: OS 33cc gas engine

Does it have a standard reliable ignition, or some one-off specialty created for OS that will cost more than the engine to replace when it dies?

RE: spark plugs

Just a few years ago, NGK CM6 plugs could be bought for $2 each in bulk quantities from sparkplug.com
Then someone decided to greatly increase the price, not sure why.
It's good to see the Denso...

RE: Have You Had Ignition Failures On Your Gasser?

I have had failures with DA, 3W and Falkon ignitions. My CH and RCexcl ignitions haven't failed......yet.
Anyone who has been flying gassers for the last decade has seen plenty of ignition failures.

RE: New OS 33cc Gasser..any reports yet?

Most electronic ignitions require a good flip to spark. The RCXel ignition doesn't retard the spark if you turn the prop over slowly, and that can bite you because it will be full advance. That's...

RE: DLE-20 fried a piston...

Take it apart and examine the piston and ring. That should tell you why it seized. Manufacturer error or operator error? Who knows without examining anything.

RE: DLE55 Rear Exhaust Conversion

Not possible. The piston also needs to rotate 90 degrees, and that can't can be done.

RE: DLE Long term reliability ?

Ralph, are you still able to buy DLEs from a Chinese wholesaler, or has that pipeline dried up? I wouldn't mind buying more engines than I need...:D

RE: Why Gassers are more addictive or better than Glows e?

Because glow engines go dead stick at the wrong time.
Gas engines never quit running.

RE: ZDZ 80 B2 RV-L question

I have the ZDZ 80 single and twin. These are the original versions with aluminum nicasil cylinders, about ten years old. The twin is not quite as strong as the single, maybe 200 rpm down with a 26x10...

RE: Precision Eagle 5.8 GLOW to Gas possible????

Hopefully, the glow motor was stored with some after-run oil in it. Otherwise, you may have some rusted needle bearings on the rod. Glow fuel is fairly corrosive to steel. Gasoline + oil protects...

RE: New for welding

One thing I don't understand is they tell you to use a water-alcohol mix to generate a shielding gas. Then they warn you not to use methanol as it generates toxic gas and the manufacturer takes no...

RE: Timing a RCexl without degree wheel

A popsicle stick in the exhaust port works fine for a piston stop. Then I use the degree wheel made from scrap wood and a print out from the internet + paper clip for a pointer.

RE: DA 100 Carb problems

Things to check:
Is your clunk filter in the tank totally clogged? Blow into tank vent and see if your ears pop.

RE: Prop Question

Good props (Menz, Mejzlik, Biela) don't need a 10mm reamer. The center hole is properly sized by the manufacturers. All you need is a drill jig for the prop bolt holes.
