impact ....:expanding my knowledge is what i plan on doing as i am a newbie to this hobby (nitro that is) i used race electric but cant resist the might of nitro so yeah all help is welcomed and much appreciated as far as the head shims, or gaskets are concerned, i bent them a little out of flat shape when removing them will this hurt?
good idea on contacting the sh engine comp. i will do for shim sizes and #'s , i may just buy a gasket set for this engine, i may as well do it now as i do not know what the previous owner has done to it,or even if he broke it in properly
thanks for the advice and your concern very welcomed dont be shy
savage : where are you situated? i live in australia, if you lived in aussie land then maybe an idea to send it to you, but postage to say america i am guessing you are, would be a fuss i think i probably would like to try it on my own for the experience if i make a mess of it then ill send it to ya.
you could probably take a look at my o.s max r.z engine its leaking fuel and stalls alot ,i would really like to get this going well but atm my sh in the xb8 is my priority so ill work on that first, then see if the os can be fixed if not i buy new eng for xb8 and put the sh in my practice buggy.
could i get a standard gasket kit for my eng at my lhs? i guess they would vary for dif engs.
im not quiet sure how to go about my clutch set up but ill check it out it helps alot to have u guys as pros help me out along the way, so, much appreciated from my point in r/c nitro racing.
i took the head off and the sleave out and the sleave has i little dark brown charcoal colour around the bevelled edge of the exhaust valve and its a little golden in colour on top of the piston (i left that in, just took the sleeve out).
what would be a standard maintenance be on these r/c nitro engines i mean you have the standard priming and oiling on starting and finish with using it but a maintenance of pulling it apart what would be involved in a typical pull down,and replaced?
