Re: Thor 45cc Engine problem

Did your Zenoah 20 have the Zenoah ignition unit?
They are a known power hog.
Most of us with the original ignition have changed over to RCXL

Cheers,

Re: wanted twin petrol engines

I've got a 342 sitting here I'm never going to use. Shipping to the Uk would be a bit costly methinks.

Cheers,

Re: advice wing tube issues

I don't know if I would use just paper. I used the plastic wing covering as it has a shiney finish that wont absorb any resin that gets on it. Paper being slightly porous will soak up any resin that might get on it. You will now have a solid metal/fiberglass tube assy. Make sure to wax very thorough...

Re: advice wing tube issues

Is the tube through the fuselage a bit of bog roll too? You could lay up glass on the metal tube to make a new wing sleeve, but that would be a complete swine to get off again. If you cover the metal tube with a layer of plastic covering film, ultracote, monocote etc, 3 or 4 good coats of wax, some...

Re: Thor 45cc Engine problem

Listening to your video, that sounds like an ignition miss. Do you have the original Chinese plug in it? If so swap it for a NGK, Champion, Bosch etc. Is the spark plug cap pushed onto the plug all the way..high tension lead in good order? Try another ignition module. Pick up sensors have been known...

Re: Fuel plumbing in a 1/3 Spacewalker

When was the G38 last run?
It may require a carb kit...metering diaphgram no longer supple, inlet needle stuck closed, pump flapper valves stuck or curled up not seating, etc. or as mentioned air leak in the fuel lines.
The walbro carb will pull fuel vertically quite a distance.

Cheers,
Dave.

Re: Zenoah 38 Problems

Also make sure the gasket goes on the carb first then the diaphragm then the cover.

Re: Wellington

What are you gents using for a tail wheel retract? I've given up on Kingfisher and no joy from Unitracts, but I was contacted by Dave Brown (Thank you, Dave)who stated he had not had any call for a Welly t/wheel retract unit but would see if anything suitable could be found. I've heard nothing back ...

Thanks, Mike.

I emailed unitracts......no reply.

I give up. Looks like Kingfisher and Unitracts couldn't care less.

Re: Kingfisher Aviation

Well, I give up on Paul @ Kingfisher. I sent out 3 emails, one to Paul and two to the addresses on their website. I did actually receive a reply from Paul, who claims that my e-mails must be going to their junk/spam file, which I guess they never check. Obviously, they don't all go to junk/spam as h...

Does anyone here know Paul Dudley of Kinfisher Aviation? I've been in very sporadic contact via e-mail with him re: Wellington tail wheel retract. I've tried all 3 contacts via the Kingfisher website and even replied to Paul's last e-mail (Nov.2/16) No response at all. Is Kingfisher closed, everyone...

I finally managed to renew after countless tries.

The site wouldn't recognise my password, I had to get a new one, went through immediately after that.
