Questions?? New engine help

Hey guys, my new Dynamite mach 2 .21 engine just arrived and I've been trying to fit it into my 8ight for a while, but I have a few questions:
  1. When I use the collet which came with the engine, the flywheel sticks out too much, but when I use the origonal collet (which came with the old engine) it seems to fit ok, is is alright to use this collet? (I am using the clutch assembly from the old engine which was a mach 427)
  2. On the old engine the screw that holds the clutch bell on had a coller but the new one does not, is is ok to use it without a coller?
  3. I need to flip the liding portion of the carb upsideown so the servo can attach to the bottom, how do I rotate it?

This is my first engine replacement, I'm sure this stuff is really basic to you, so thanks for helping me out!

you have to use the Losi collet (your old one)

there should be a tiny set screw on the bottom of the little arm at the end of the carb

Hey guys, thanks for all the tips I have it installed and everything looks fantastic. I know that the manufacturer recommends their own glow plug, but they are a little tricky (and costly) to find here. Which O.S glowplug would be best for this engine?

Thanks again buds!
