You hit the nail on the head there!

I just placed my first order with them two weeks ago with credit card. Slower than molassas in January!

After the first week I sent an email. No response.

I'm not upset but I think they are poorly run........

Will look to another place to do business if I need parts within the month.

Looks like I need the needle adjustment arm on the side of the carb, mines broke, not sure if I need the whole side assembly or just the arm? Have yet to take it apart.

if the needle is broke off into the hole you may or may not be able to get it out. I have a some carb parts, ill see if i have an entire assembly you can just swap out.

Post a pic of the carb if you can. Do you have a mic to measure the diam. that fits into the carb so i can be sure if i have something that will work for you?

Hello,

I bought an OPS 80 from a guy on Ebay it came with an after market head button the manufacturer of the head button "Keeley" if there is anybody out there is familiar with this place or has heard of them any info would be appreciated, the head button seriously cranks up the compression ratio and the engine buts out some serious power. I am trying to fine on for my OPS 80. Thanks Dave

Hey Oldlugs, Thanks for the info about Terry Keeley, I found the info for contacting him so now hopefully I can get one of his head buttons for my OPS 80, and get some real power out of it. Dave

Head Button commonly known as the Nitro Head the part where the glow plug screws into most people that have been in R/C Models for any length of time knows what a Head Button is if you know all the components of your engine you wouldn't of had to ask what a head button is!

Aeromarine is good at taking your money and orders online, but good luck getting any kind of answer if you email them. They fail at that, even if your a customer with an outstanding order. I waited for over five months one time waiting for parts, and sent email questions concerning my order with no responses. I had to call them. Turns out they sent my order to someone with the same name as me in another state that was in their database. After that was cleared up, I got my parts within the same week I called them.

I am not here to slam Aeromarine, its just that they are not very repsonsive to email questions so if dealing with them just use the phone and not emails. Its better anyways because I went through the pain of finding out a few of my parts were no longer available, and they had to return cash to my credit card. They list all the parts but do not have an "IN STOCK" or "DISCONTINUED" notification area.

The only other supplier I have found for OPS is Niagra Marine up in Canada, but they are slightly higher in price and pounded me for my credit card number with just a simple inquiry on a price and availability quote, which really turned me off from them.
