Hi Quickie,

That little tiny bearing that supports the camshaft at the very back of the engine. Here's how I got it out. I heated the aluminum housing on my gas stove and then wacked the housing...

Looking at these parts I have to believe those four bearings are toast! I would NOT sandblast those parts. Scotchbright or media blast with walnut shells.

Don't assume those bearings are OK. I did on my first tear-down of my .46. I can almost guarantee that small bearing in the cam case is junk if you have all that rust inside the engine., Subsequent...

Thanks, that's good advice. I printed the user manuals for both the 49PI and the later 49PI Type II. The manual for the 49PI recommends 25% and the 49PI Type II is 15%. Maybe I'll break it in with...

Try a fellow named Bob Brooks at shtterman@aol.com. He sells on eBay and can probably locate or has what you need at a reasonable price. Then there's always Ken Enya at Enya Metal Works.

I only buy Enya. I have an .09 all the way up to a 1.55 4C. I just took delivery of a new, never run .19 VI 4006 (for $18.50). Yep, I love Enyas.

The "Hair-On-Fire" you can never use too much nitro boat guys would disagree with you also.

I hope my brand new .40 BB runs that well. It's going in a Brodak Oriental. Nice test stand by the way! I also like your choice of fuel mix.

It's pretty easy with a dial indicator. Set it on your valve spring retainer. If you place it on the pushrod end of your rocker arm your reading won't be accurate. If you want to check the...
