Smile Where to buy OPS .21 parts

Can anyone point me to an OPS supplier - I bought am OPS 21 car engine, and its a nice motor in most respects, but it has flogged out, and needs a new conrod...or does any one have one with a stuffed piston / barrel that they would sell the rod and crank if they are OK ?

Thanks
Grant

Default re OS conrod

Thanks - can you be more specific about which model OS - I am not familiar with their car engines ( only their plane engines )

OS only has one type .21 car engine. I use VZ's conrod.
You need to thin the conrod end and drill a lubricating hole.
If you can get a picco .21 conrod,then it more fit for your OPS.

Thumbs up

Thanks - I have an Omega Picco 21 that I could see if the rod fits...just from curiosity, and if it does order a new one
