Another tip on silver soldered steel joints is to ensure that all flux residue is cleaned off.

Best way I have found is to soak the joint in solution of caustic soda. This will neutralize all acid and leave with salt and water which can be rinsed off with plain water. Parts dried and oiled up/painted to prevent rust build up.

With the throttle barrel fully closed, the only way an engine can continue running is by sucking in sufficient air from some other opening. Assuming that there indeed is no air leak, it means that the barrel is not fully closed. Have you tried disconnecting the throttle pushrod and moving the throttle arm manually to see if the barrel closes any further and the engine stops? Also make sure that the set screw retaining the throttle arm is not loose allowing the arm to move without actually moving the barrel.

But have to agree with others. You problem is actually a good problem to encounter

Hello! Peter,

Both aircraft sport "Brookland" on them. Looks like services of a common pilot were availed wink

Thank you folks for the kudos. I am relived as this had been a long pending project. Still some odd bits to add and some tweaks to make which will happen in due course.

Can't thank enough all the help I received in various ways from so many folks. Especially you Peter. Thank you once againyes

Chris , the model has a Laser 150 at the pointy end running an APC 16x8

Lovely looking model there Scott.

Maybe I could trouble you for some building notes etc

I have an ASP 160 converted to ignition and run on glow using CH Ignitions supplied parts. I had issues with one cylinder dropping and hence the conversion.

While Don's offer will help you. If it's known BA size why not take a same size screw, cut to length ( per the other one you have) and ground off the lower thread length ( again measuring from the one you are using) and you are back in business. I

made one similarly for a Magnum 52 few years back

Thread: A stubborn cam cover on four stroke

Ha the followers are in there, the one towards the cam cover is moving up and down but the other one is stuck good. Tried magnet to pull out the one that's moving but it did not come out. Maybe need to find a bigger and stronger one

Unfortunately no, the engine has been opened up again.

02/09/2019 07:06:04

Yes, in all probability the cam axle is rusted and fused with the bearing housed in the cam cover and the whole mess is preventing the cover from being pried off.

So, do I drill on the opposite side of the cam cover and then tap out the cam and the cover?

Yes the engine is already disassembled. Assembled everything back to try the pressurizing with air line trick. All it did was leak from the cam cover. I only had a small table top spray system to pressurize, that could also be a reason.

In the process of reconditioning an ASP 91 four stroke. The engine was last run about 7 years back and thereafter has been sitting in a box. Everything was stuck and frozen tight. So one be one have managed to get things freed up.

Now need to free up the cam followers and also assess the condition of cam gears and the bearings. For this the cam cover has to come off. While I am able to rotate the cam cover the stubborn thing just won't come off . What's the best way to get the thing off? I am loathe to apply too much force to the ears of the cover as I fear they may just snap.

Why not just use your smartphone with a clinometer app? These are pretty accurate.

Looks like the folks Upstairs had some stubborn engines that needed taking care and they sent for Wizard of Oz.

Thread: Silicon fuel tube rotting?

TYGON appears to be the scientific tube that is impervious to fuels/oils etc...expensive.. Its yellow in colour and has the name every 300mm down the tube to show its genuine.

I have had that stuff rot in pack. The pack had slimy precipitation at the bottom and all over the tube. Instead of investigating what it was I preferred to throw it all off. That stuff will also harden over time when in contact with petrol. Ultimately started using either Viton or PU type petrol tubing
