This sounds like someone is stealing John Bohland's idea and trying to capitalize on it! John, or OSRocket on E-bay and S-grid has been doing this for a year or more after much research and hard work and now he has perfected it , every shadetree hack wants in on it and will probably ruin it for everyone. John's stuff is spot on and after 20 piston and sleeves I should know! He uses a CNC hydraulic tubing crimper which is way more accurate than a lathe collet !

Default One Mans Junk Is Another Mans Treasure

This is the additude that has got my goat right from the get go. A worn piston/sleeve set that ranges from say $60 for a (.12)novarossi line thru $200 for a RB with Mods...IS NOT JUNK! That is old school mentality.... Welcome to the real world of RC. Guys with a racing budget can and should be able to afordabley rebuild their engines with maintaning original performance/reliability. How one values their possessions is their own choice. Wake up call boys....you will find more rc guys than not that would be very sensitive to a being told "I couldn't fix it...something went wrong...It was junk anyway". I build things and repair things with values of $100 thru $100,000 Pluss. In any instance, I do not allow myself the option to pass off my mistakes to a costumers expense. I to have limitations...I recognise them....I can't do the job right, I will send the job down the road. My personal profile is open domain . Unlike squeezy here my name will remain the same. And "asd" I,m 80 miles from toronto should you wish to see researched and developed. Hope I did,t sound like as big a P...k as i realy am. He He

With a "squeezed" piston and sleeve, you almost always have to replace the rod. The fit has to be so tight to produce good results that it puts major strain on the rod bushings. Plus the original rod is worn anyway.
