Pretty good condition, I only had to construct a false canopy.  Ran it some time ago but did not fly it.  Flew the other one.  

Gummy castor slung engine and fuselage.  A single screw holds the engine module on.  I like it.  Makes maintenance easy.  And the fuel line nipples are substantial and do not break unlike the break prone Wens.  That screw will only accept a #1 jewelers Phillips screwdriver.

Refinished the brown #3 cylinder.  Did not have to reset the connecting rod, nice tight fit.  Chose not to remove the reed but cleaned it in place. Same for the crank shaft.

One down two to go.  Rubber band will not stay, they turn to gum with long term exposure to fuel residue.

$15. You are costing me money!!

I just ordered the liquid blueing... thank you for a great idea, and another addition to the shop.

Neat idea. I have some Birchwood Perma blue I might try on one of my beat up cylinder heads just to see how it works, although the Oxy Blue is probably better.

On the fuel tank.  Simple Green works well to clean it.  Hold it under until bubbles stop.  Let it sit for an hour or so.  Shake it, then shake the rest out.  Hold it under warm water until bubbles stop, shake it out and do it again until water runs clean.  Then blow it out dry with low volume compressed air.  Low volume you can blow the plastic tanks apart.  Ask me how I know.

Bob,
Will that Oxpho-Blue prevent steel from rusting? I have Zenith Stromberg carb brackets and throttle linkage (TR6) that look horrible. I'm thinking a quick muriatic dunk to de-rust,.and then your Oxi-Blue. This looks like a cheaper alternative to home zinc-pating. The pitting doesn't bother me so much as long as the brackets are still functional.

Thanks in advance!

Yes, rust preventative is it's main purpose, but we have all seen rusty cylinders and gun barrels. I have used muriatic acid to derust gun barrels -1" - 2" PVC blocked off at one end and it works well. But I prefer media blasting whenever possible then prime and paint car parts with semi-gloss black. Aerosol Krylon works well, but Rustoleum has a new paint that I really like.

Plating is always best, but I'm an MG guy not a Rolls Royce guy. Smile
