Those are clips which go over the end of the pin on the clevis to stop it opening. They slide on sideways into the small grove in the pin.


Belt and braces.

Do let us know what works, especially if it turns out to be the lettuce leaf

AND make sure you remove the backing film before you startblush

The other thing to avoid is once you have peeled off the backing film, avoid trying to apply it upside down

The adhesive sticks really well to the iron blushblush

I think I'm part of the problem, it must be over 10 years since I bought a new engine from a retailer,

Me too, though not 10 years

I think maybe 5% of my collection was bought new.Most recently a saito30 as I heard they were going out of production and didn't want to miss the boat. The rest are second hand, though many are "new" and others I have refurbished (sometimes with parts bought new).

I don't think me buying a few extra engines from anyone is going to make a jot of difference to the global picture.

Hi, thie other consideration with retracts is weight. You already have a foam wing and this is quite a slippy model.

balsaloc as in the white glue stuff? I thini it's PVA based in which case soaking it in water should soften it/disolve it

Roughly where in the country are you? You may find there's someone on here who could recommend a local friendly spot!

Hi Jon, it's always possible. I haven't seen an enya twin for sale for years. The problem is, of course that sometimes the manufacturers stop making v twins ......devil

The other thing don't see any more is the Saito 30 open rocker. There used to be quite a regular supply but no more.

In fact, looking back at fleabay engines I've acquired over the years, I think prices have gone up not down which would rather contradict their apparent decline in popularity.

if you can't be rsd with the bidding thing


IIRC I bought my first 52 surpass for £50 on fleabay although that was probably 15 years ago now.

The same engine was pulling my SE5a around last weekend.
