just to give you a heads up, starting a thread like this won't get you too far. no one likes people who demand help, especially if it's hard to tell if the person has tried to help themself before asking someone else. have you checked some of the online hobby shops for parts? which picco .12 is it? do you need an to replace the o-rings? piston and sleeve? bearings? connecting rod? crankshaft? giving information like this can help others to steer you in the right direction. however, titling the thread in a way that can come across as "poor me" probably won't get you the kind of attention you're looking for, assistance and otherwise. try amainhobbies.com for parts.

Well said Mr. Lancia!

It will be cheaper to buy a new one then it will be to rebuild that one and you will be better off for doing so.

I think rymster is off to good start here.

1. People on these forums need to understand where he is coming from. It is not our choice to help the noobs, it is our OBLIGATION.
We have to do it.
If we do not help rymster, he will become angry or sullen or both.

2. Demanding parts info on a forum is a strong move. Huevos grandes, my man. Way to represent.

3. Yelling at people by typing in all caps is the best way to make friends. (example: IF YOU GUYS DON'T START HELPING ME NOW I WILL INSULT ALL OF YOU BY IMPLYING THAT YOU NEED ME TO HELP YOUR HOBBY GROW AND YOU ARE ALL JERKS CUZ YOU ARE TREATING A POOR NOOB THIS WAY.)

BTW- this guy is not a kid or anything. He is 21.

Being this is a older motor you can find a rebuild kit for it but it will take some looking around.
This motor was known for having problems so im not real sure if it's even rebuilding.
Piston/Sleeve and a Connecting Rod will cost about $65.00-90.00 depending on where it's purchased.
The Carb on these motor's were NIGHTMARE's.
Most guys removed it and applied a O.S. Carb.

If you want a new piston/sleeve and a conrod them Im sure we can help you find one IF THATS what you want.

What you need to do in the meantime is CHILL.Attitude like yours will get you no where.Being a Prick wont get you any deals and any help.

We need PICS of the motor so we know for SURE what we are dealing with.
Get pics and let us know if you really wanna try to fix this thing.

Biggest TIP I can give you.Find another motor.
The Earlier Picco's were nightmare's and this motor is about 5-6 yrs old.
At least 4.

In all honesty.Im not real sure we WANT people like yourself in the hobby.
If your not smart enough at 21 yrs of age to simply do a search then maybe this hobby isnt for you anyway.

Here's the info you need.If they cant help you then I would say goodluck finding parts for a motor 5yrs or older.
It will be tricky and when you do find them I think after you hear the price you will want another motor anyway.

Instead of looking for parts for a DEADBEAT motor maybe see if anyone has a nice motor that's barely been used.
Helps when a motor is current or within 2-3 yrs if it's still being marketed.
This is ALOT smarter than what your trying to do.But being you couldnt do a simple search im not sure if you will be wise enough to make the right decision.

Here's that info that took me all of about 5 seconds to find.

www.werksracing.com is who you need to contact.
Open 9:00am till like 5:00pm.
Call them at 408-365-1000

since your a noob, tear apart that picco so you know how it works and goes together...then, throw it in the garbage. and again, since your a noob, run, not walk, to your nearest hobby shop and buy yourself an OS .12 CV. then get yourself a DuraTrax Stage II Performance head for the OS .12 CV. an O'Donnell head is the same thing if you can find one. if you think you need a new header and pipe, OS makes a great lilttle polished pipe that makes the CV scream. you'll just need to port the header a little to open it up (if you don't own one already, you'll need a dremel tool for this). here's everything you might need.....

OS .12 CV......http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXBZ14&P=7

DuraTrax head......http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXTC86&P=7

O'Donnell head......http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXDBY3&P=7

OS Pipe......http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXBFJ0&P=7

Associataed Header for .12 motor......http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/WTI0001P?&I=LXSK36

Header Bolts for OS......http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LX3424&P=V

if you need a pipe coupler, Losi makes one of the best (and stickiest...so it doesn't slide off). it's part number LOSA9325 and sells for about $2.50.

if you buy the OS pipe, you'll also need some JB Weld to adhear the pressure nipple to the pipe. you can use either the quick set or the regular. you can buy it at AutoZone or almost anywhere else at auto parts or hardware stores.

http://www.deeteeenterprises.com/NS.....Adhesives.php

if you wanna spend the money and want a little polished bling on your CV, you can get yerself one of the kingheadz heads for your CV.

http://www.kingheadz.com

there are a ton of aftermarket head manufactures if there is something else that you perfer to run.

you'll also need a good airfilter. the one that comes with the CV is ok, but it's just that....ok. i strongly recommend the MotorSaver airfilter. Tower carries them also.

http://www.motorsaverfilters.com

here's a pic of my adam drake (1st edition). it has that OS set-up in it that i just showed you. trust me......it screams, and is waaaaaay more than capabable of running with the italian powered trucks.

here......that's more help (and detailed help at that) than anyone else was willing to give you...........now get to wrenchin' and stop yer

As far as small blocks go .18 and under you only need to know 2 letters.......


O.S. The CV set-up that the guy before posted sounds about right if you want more power go with a CV-R..... or maybe a TR, but beware with the TR you'll need a new exhaust system......

The lifespan of a CV is about half that of the CV-R. But then again you can get a new piston/sleeve for the CV for 20 bux at tower hobbies. Can't beat that price. They are great little engines. I always have one for an extra motor.

CV's are cheap to buy, and cheap to fix. Tune super easy and are reliable. All that makes them IMO the perfect starter engine to learn tuning/wrenching on.
