|Thread: Valspar paint problem|
You know pigments Maurice, are fine ground powders for us modeller to brush paint and spray, and modern enamel and acrylics are excellent.
I don't think Valspar aspire to our needs.
Google PC10 in Britmodeller, as they have some alternate suggestions

Am pretty sure I had a Ridge Runt from a kit
A Precident Kit? of T180 fame.
|Thread: Can you Help to Identify this Engine?|
Peter, just double check the depth of the hole in the crank, and the prop shaft stud thread length,
that this is long enough to tighten up.
but not so long that the prop shaft " bottoms out " unable to tighten.
Is a simple remedy if the stud is too long
My own choice is that you have to pop a piece of timber in to the port Peter.
Get both the outer and inner threads absolutely clean. I used carbontet when we were allowed to get it.
But use your chosen degreaser before applying locktite.
Balance the prop of course.
A .60 can often benefit from a cooler plug too, and is worth a try when motors throw a prop.

|Thread: Alternative to Dural|
Dural is tough, and very lightweight Andy, so is difficult to substitute.
Large models can cope with heavier u/c
I agree with Nigel here
Some ringed motors show no resistance when cold yet run fine when running and things get hot.
|Thread: Unfairly vilified engines.|
Tuning is important Matt. If a motor has a good plug, clean fuel and can draw air, to compress, mixed with the fuel,
It will run, and all the names you mention do run.
Like all our equipment, times occur when installation and lack of " know how ", results in a poor,
But unfair review.

|Thread: What model|
Power pack and prop choice should produce power,
Suitable for a wide range of models weighing 4 - 6lb James.
There is seldom just one choice with electric set ups.

|Thread: Connectors - which way round|
That is a Female connector Tony, as you suspect.
If we were naming the " grip", then that would be male
But from stock, the brass probe is male and the tube female, as you said

|Thread: OS 46 - stripped crankcase cover screw threads|
Try PTFE tape Jonathan, there are 2 types to try
Water Tape, is thinnest, and try tightly wrapping the threads whereby the tape stays on as you screw in.
Gas Tape, is about twice as thick, and wrap the same way, to tighten as it goes in.
This is a good move on any blind holes such as silencer attachment.
|Thread: Redundant at 62!|
During " hard times " Cliff, this happens
And employers do seek out " superhuman " to do the work of more than one employee.
Only you can decide, but follow your instincts.

|Thread: Sellers beware!|
Dreadful experience Simon really.
PayPal do guarantee transactions where there is " Proof of posting" to the Address PayPal state on their invoice.
It is when we go " off piest " that cracks appear.
PayPal customers get a rating, and delivery instructions are given dependent on the rating.
If these are followed, then no surprises later.
|Thread: Regulating to 6v|
My own take on this Gary, as this is what I do.
4 good Duracell dry cells will last you all season.
4 rechargeable AA cells less so, as at 1.2v per cell, you only get 4.8v from the pack.
Dedicated Transmitter Lipos have already included an internal protection circuit built in, but you pay the price.
