    Expansion bottle and other

    Airlocks can be the very devil to shift sometimes. Just draining and re-filling may simply have re-instated the air bubble and it's easy to wreck an engine if you don't shift it. Run with the cap...

    This forum isn't what it was

    I couldn't agree more. It has been a bromide to the place where a varied array of postings brought humour and information, and yes, a few laughs as well.

    Crash today

    Interesting responses, but some of them are just rote, and that ignores the field situation, weather or the actualities of the situation. To advocate 'strait ahead every time' is to exclude the...

    Briggs engine, cam failure and cure

    You have to be careful in polishing. You can actually make things weaker, because existing surface hardening will follow the ups and downs of the surface, so that polishing will cut off the peaks. ...

    Briggs engine, cam failure and cure

    Check on the initial acceleration of the tappet/follower off the Cam ramp as it opens. I don't know it the Cams are standard and re-ground, but if they are, it is not uncommon for the opening ramp...

    Front of Tank is a bit close to the rad for good cooling (maybe, because it's not easy to tell with only two piccies). The area available for the exit air is just as important as the area of the...

    When flying I was always taught to have a field in mind for an EO landing, but I doubt I doubt that many people do; judging by some results we see.

    Is this the motor that saves the sport?

    It won't save the Sport, anymore than the 'Global' or the HSK products could - you can't attribute that to any Motor but since we are spoilt for choice, how much better to have a higher revving more...
