Default Throttle Linkage Help!

Anyone have any advice on this? I'm really stumped.

I can't get the throttle linkage to reliably hold on to the nipple to open and close the throttle. Silly as it is, I believe the slight bend in the rod was the only thing keeping it on there. I was wondering if perhaps anyone knew of any aftermarket parts that might help or a modification that could solve the problem. Here's a video that shows what I'm talking about:

The nipple just won't stay on the throttle control when the servo moves back & forth. The bent tie-rod and spring just don't provide enough stability.

Anyone have any tips to make this a more durable setup, or a trick that could stabilize this a lot more? The whole thing seems very flimsy and I wonder if there isn't an aftermarket solution also....

Thanks for any advice!

Default Spada Glow Plug Adapter

Anyone ever get around to installing that adapter to use standard size plugs? The originals are getting harder to find it seems...I took a look at Mecoa.com, but didn't see one for the .09 Sirio...I wrote them a note, but no reply as of yet.

The thread is in the head, no button, some one asked about drilling and re-threading the head couple pages back. Would be nice to get a turbo plug in there...

Bigbank66: There is a 16T 1st and 20T 2nd pinion, but no smaller spurs...monstering could be an option...

Default Spada Stuff

I know this is a source of pain for a lot of Spada owners...just discovered this part that allows you to use standard sized glow plugs & thought I'd share.

I also wanted to see if anyone had any experience with this engine, the SIRIO 09 ROUTE246 SP Version 3 R246-4050. It looks like a new generation of the Sirio .09, but there's not much info out there about it.

I'm also badly in need of a more durable replacement for the throttle linkage setup. Mine just feels flimsy and constricted.
