Use some fine wet and dry on something flat and sand the bottom of the valve cover until all the paint is gone.

I hold the liner lip with pliers and twist as I pull it out.
It shouldn't be too tight.

I made an aluminium bracket that has a rubber grommet for the sensor lead to pass through. It fits under the Super Mount bolts. This stops the sensor wire from vibrating and cracking where the hard...

I think it is a fault in the casting. I know of a few people that have had the same thing happen. I've had 4 break. Always the right hand lower lug looking from the back.

Bearing life depends on the type of fuel/oil used. I've always used 30% nitro and 10% oil, whether it was mixing my own or pre mixed. I used to get around 150 flights when I was using Cool Power MV....

These days a new engine shouldn't behave any differently to how it should at anytime after.

It's a bad idea using castor in a 4 stroke YS. And even worse if it is to be stored.

The barrel may be hardened? Not sure.

Worth a try.

One thing to consider though. With a slight ridge, all the rotational friction would be on one small point and may wear the housing excessively.

Hi Brett,

I have 2 standard 200 cdi's and a 200S cdi, which all run like Swiss watches.

When you say, you "weren't happy with it", how unhappy does it seem?

It could be possible that the...

The 200 and 200S have a different front bearing part number to the previous engines.

From what I can tell, it's the seals that are different.

I agree that if it does not fail early it will be OK.

My theory is that occasionally the clearance may be a bit tight.

I doubt it's oil content related.

From the 170 onwards, all my engines are cdi and I've always used 10% oil. If it was oil %, I would have had more than the 2 failures.

Yep, my 200S did the same.

Big end failures are nothing new. All the DZ engines have had a failure somewhere, sometime, it's not only the 200S.

My first 170 did. I've been using YS for 20 years...
