Two wen macs came in the mail today from Kim. Very Happy  I tinkered around with the MkXIII. The piston and glow head was stuck big time and heat wouldnt budge it. I set it to the side till later and stuck a poor piston/cylinder set in along with my Mecoa adapter head for some fun. The plug is a Merlin 1\2a plug. I wasnt expecting any profound performance out of it, and didnt get any. This spare cylinder has poor compression. I ran a half oz. through it slow and rich. After a cool down I fired it up again and needled it up to a two stroke, she made 13020 rpm with a 6x3 prop and 10% fuel. It started easy and adjusted well.

Later I got some tools and removed the glow head from the original cylinder and drove the piston out with a punch. Man was it in there! I have two piston\rod assemblies coming from oldenginerod and I hope one of them will fit good so I can re-install the original cyl. back in. If I get a good fit she will go over 14000 rpm.

Well hopefully your pistons should arrive soon. Be sure to let me know when they get there. With all these Wen Macs you're collecting I should have sent you even more pistons. Laughing
By the way, I also have a limited number of earlier domed top Wen Mac pistons as well, if you're looking. Don't think they're new like the flat-top ones. I'm assuming that domed top=glow plug version and flat top= glow head version.
