Yes the tap had to be ground off to enable the thread to be cut to the bottom of the whole.

Thread: Repairs to 4S cylinder head
11/08/2010 17:18:54
A friend of mine just fixed this problem on a OS by tapping a slightly coarser thread in the head (it was not too badly damaged) and making an adapter to go between the head and the exhaust pipe. The original pipe was silver soldered into the adapter. I can find out exactly what thread he used if you are interested?
Thread: KV of a motor
11/08/2010 08:21:41
Power up the motor and measure the voltage and RPM. Them divide the RPM by the voltage and this will give you the RPM per volt (KV). Well it will give you a reasonable approximation.
Thread: Foamy A-10 - any experiences?
09/08/2010 17:42:24
I have a GWS A10 that flys well. It has been well crashed but alway goes back together and flys again.
Thread: Brushless conversion for GWS Zero - any ideas?
09/08/2010 12:57:55
That's a good suggestion from Marc. I have used this to replace a 350 size motor in the past.

Welcome Bob I look forward to meeting you sometime and to reading your build blogs. Enjoy the friendly forum.
Thread: How many Modellers Are Engineers?
04/08/2010 08:37:34
I have engineering in my bones but only studied it to first year degree then swapped to Computer Science. Now I am a odd job/builder, fencer, plumber, knife and tool sharpener, professional parent.
Thread: fuel filler
29/07/2010 19:24:35
Can you add a picture or link so we can see what you are talking about?
Thread: What to do with the fuel filling tube?
29/07/2010 10:49:27
I use whatever length makes refueling easy for a given model and a fueling nipple or a fuel filter on the end of the pipe from the pump. You can see some examples on the web page I linked to above.
Thread: Lipo voltage
29/07/2010 10:45:41
3S is just a short hand for 3S1P so they are exactly the same thing. It is a bit strange to say 1P because how can one cell be in parallel with itself thats why most people just say 3S.
Thread: What to do with the fuel filling tube?
29/07/2010 09:36:06
I have used these (look at about 8 items down Fuel Bung). One end goes in your filler tube and the other goes over one of the other pipes and keeps the end of the filler tube in place while not in use.
By the way welcome to the friendly forum.
Thread: newbie wanting to leaarn
29/07/2010 08:42:32
And a big welcome from me too. If you can do your A in 5 weeks than you are on you way to being a really good pilot.
Thread: Lithoplate
27/07/2010 18:44:06
Maurice, it would be more helpful if you could say what material you are trying to attach it to. It's hard to give an answer to such an open ended question.

Thread: glo fuel contents
24/07/2010 15:38:12
I think Prosynth is made/sold by Weston UK and the will support their engines more or less forever if they are run exclusively on their fuel. They do not seem to specify whats in it.
