In the old days?... There was a Sorghum contact cement that was popular. It would go on with a credit card. We had a water based one here that worked well. After many years it would stop sticking...

Does the SH have roller bearings on the connecting rod? How is it that it can use so little oil? I have seen a few threads on the Norvel. It seems they work very well, or they have problems with...

Although not a true marine motor, a Novarossi or Picco .28 is available with a heat sink head which could be converted or used as is. Truggy motors. OPS may still be available.

If your DX6 is one of the newer ones, then a Lemon receiver would be a cheap option. The battery at 9.6 V is sort of in between what a LiPo gives you. A two cell is a bit low, and a 3 cell is a bit...

GMS? They were not made for very long. I think they are a pretty good motor. Likely just a hot plug to make sure they don't flame out on idle. I have a few but never mounted them on a plane. A...

If you are blowing plugs, add a shim to the cylinder and head space. It might run cooler because of that too if there is less peignition.

If the exhaust timing is not at 180 degrees or something, then you could just make up a mousse can or something as a muffler. They are a pretty good motor. I never sell any motors. Always good to...
