G'day. Interesting that they have kept the 91 with the 82 and the 100 so close in size. From what I remember, the 65 and the 91 were part of a series of engines that were phased out but it seems I...

G'day Pete. Thanks for setting me straight. The 91 disappeared here (Australia) some time ago and the 91S must be a more recent version. You have to give it to Saito - 30, 40, 56, 62, 72, 82, 91,...

G'day

You do seem to be having a lot of dead sticks. I'd suggest the following -

1. Check the tank and all the fuel lines. Perhaps you have a leak or perhaps (and this happens quite...
