i have an idea for mounting those pesky chepo engines if any one is interested??


well my idea is that the rear read valve assembly can be eased out an the fire wall of a small model can be cut out witha sutable hole in so the read assembly inserted through the back of the firewall...an re seated into the engine..add a lil epoxy in the guise of a fillet around the engine an viloa!!! (bob's yas uncle) here in Ozzie lingo...ill try one myself here later an post a pic

Well hang, we're deprived of pictures. I don't know what the trouble might be.
If you signed up at www.servimg.com as in the instructions Admin posted, then you can go to that site to manually upload and get your links rather than using the button in the forum text editor. Same as if you use any picture host such as Photobucket.com.

By pipebomb, could you mean:

E-Bay: Vintage Testors .049 Model Airplane Engine

"Pipe Bomb" engine mounting Testor10

Looks like some kind of a clamping system would have to be used, with the two tabs on the crankcase right used to prevent the motor from turning about its axis.

Pictures the size of the ones you posted above will upload much faster if you reduce it to 800pix wide on your computer before uploading. When you select 800 pix in the forum's Servimg uploader interface, it still uploads your full size picture to the host server and then changes the size on their end. That may be what went wrong with your e-mail, because your ISP may restrict e-mail attachment file sizes, and it timed out. Upload speed from residential connections are generally a tiny fraction of download speed.

My internet connection usually handles full size pics in 30 seconds at most, and 800pix pictures in a couple of seconds. My ISP downloads at 20Mbps(megabits per second. "MBps" is megabytes) and uploads at just over 1 Mbps. I just watch my modem LEDs to tell when it's finished. That's when your link codes will appear. Make sure you aren't listening to Pandora or something else using your bandwidth while you are uploading. That'll choke it.

If you post a video, you have to upload it to a video hosting site like Youtube, then paste the links into the forum. Same as I was suggesting is possible with the photo host like Servimg and Photobucket.

Now that I see the pictures. How do you secure the engine to the firewall?

If I use the forum's hosting server service to do the work, I find it very easy to upload images. Copy button doesn't seem to work in Firefox, so I simply copy and paste the HTML text that it created in the upload dialog box, then paste it in the forum. It was confusing at first until I figured it out.

Personally, I'd probably "dremel" a block of hardwood and make a beam styled clamping system, with a channel cut in the other clamp to allow the crankcase "key" on the rignt side (now down) to fit into the clamp.

More easier said than done, I'm sure there are a number of ways to do it. Of course the easiest for me is to simply not buy those engines and thus not have the inventory to worry about to start with.

But that doesn't help the OP. The builkhead cutout idea might work if there is a way to further lock down the motor to keep it from vibrating, such as wire tieing it to a form of a tying post or another piece of plywood bolted to the bulkhead that can be adjusted to press against the bulkhead and engine.
