Did you go with a L/H hex-type cam spring-starter on the new crankcase?  (5 x 3 L/H prop?)

Roddie, yes I did. He didn't have the original engine, but he had one that was close. I swapped his case for one I had that had the hex plate.

Great that Kim has the spinner!!! I thought I might... but no dice. The one I have is a 2-blade R/H. I just dug-out my spinner-bag... to make sure. I think it's for my red Cox Cosmic Wind. I found a smaller (yellow) 4-blade; of which I also have a couple of sm. props for... I have no idea what plane they are for. The props are pretty small... under 4" in dia.

DAYUM!!!! "bluegill sandwiches"!!! Shocked I've never had one! My Uncle used to fish at sunrise when we camped. He'd drag his pram-boat in; having only "one leg" (lost it in Vietnam-on his 19th year as a career marine) He'd catch a couple dozen little perch, and have them fried-up in a pan for breakfast, before any of us woke up!

Bluegill/Crappie fishing with popper on a fly rod is tops in my book!  Fried in flour they're a REAL treat!

(This fish that is) lol!
