A question to all OS TR owners!
I stripped out my engine last night and found a disturbing thing! when I hold the piston and conrod assembly and push/pulling them longitually I noticed a 'slight' play in the upper conrod bushing area. It is not the bushing in the conrod, but the actual wrist pin moving in the piston hole!!
The movement is very slight but you can just feel it!! I did not check this when it was new but I know the NR engines have NO play in this area. Has anyone else checked this on their engines???
The TR has had about 1.5-2.0 litres of fuel through it (including break in) so it is still very new! Compression is still good!! I am running 30% nitro.
Could this be a problem with soft pistons on the OS????? I have not seen this on NR engines with over 4 gallons through them!!
