Thanks chaps, at the moment I've rolled them up but they are very creased from being folded in different ways over the years. Would I get away with ironing the sheets ? Any steam ? Don't want to mess them up though. crook

Where can I get plans copied ? Never had to do it before, the largest sheet measures 1480x850mm

Thread: Reproduction piston rings

Nice model that Tiger moth, do you think a .70 fs would be enough power for one ?

Thread: taranis range

Talking about aerial installation I normally put Position 1, antenna flat down the fuselage length and one vertical but would I be better putting Position 2, the antenna across the width and vertical ? Also those PCB antennas can be mounted in a clip putting the wires at Position 3, 45deg and 135deg, 90deg position being vertical. Which one would be best ?

I've just fitted my first frsky variometer in a P2000 and I was surprised how quickly I hit 400ft. It's a complete guessing game without one.

Thread: Valve work
10/06/2018 08:09:08

I must admit using the fine grinding paste was a bit too rough my favourite was the Autosul chrome cleaner. What do you use ?

09/06/2018 18:51:50

Well I had nothing to loose as its an old engine so I ground away and it has made a glorious improvement, the inlet has a thicker line than the exhaust now but there is compression yes Also the valves are still proud of the head so the valves are still quite thick at the edges.

09/06/2018 16:51:18

Its my old OS 61 fs, that ring is where I cleaned up the carbon off the valve seat with toothpaste and Autosol. If you look at the valve insert in the head there is not much for the valve to seat on. It cannot have had any more contact area than that to start with, I bet there was less to start with.

09/06/2018 15:36:58

Just working on this head and finding the valves letting compression go I tried gently valve grinding with fine paste then tried toothpaste and Autosol but looking at this there is not much contact area anyhow. It does not look like there is any valve angle cut from new, is this right ?



This was the worst, all the carbon as stuck down the shaft. Any tips greatly appreciated.

Well I'm stumped, it was easier fitting a replacement cam in the Landrover laugh maybe it rocked off TDC a bit before it moved the hight of my piston.

06/06/2018 21:24:43

This is how I've set it for now, I haven't fired it up yet. Check the last three pictures in the thread. **LINK**

Thread: Wot 4 Squared
03/06/2018 20:54:21

Watching with interest, I had a Wot trainer but never got a Wot 4. It would be nice to see the different Wot 4s together. Are they all the same size with subtle differences ?
