The OS is a bolt in...I think the turbo is only avail in a pilot(SG) version..so thats good....if you go for the regular version(TR),make sure you get the SG shaft too...

Be sure that both surfaces are both smooth and free of any dirt or grime. I have had no problems with mine. I just use the stock O.S. gasket.

Hope this helps.

I have the O.S. .12 TR , I cant seem to find the Low End Needle. Is it the same as the fuel control?

I used some nylon tape (white, strechy plumbers tape) underneath the gasket on the engine itself. Just wrap about 2 turns on around the exhaust and then slip the header gasket back on. It should make it nice and snug.

Also, another trick a fellow racer gave me was to drill extra holes and use a second spring. It keeps the header up to the engine better and that should help your leaking problem.

I just did the nylon tape thing. Hopefully it does some good to my car. Or else 20 mins wasted.

Hey FastHarry,

I got my gearbox sorted out. A real simple solution that had nothing to do with the springs.

I overlooked the center set screw tension to the hub. I didnt have it tight enough and the shoes where actually engaging and slipping over the center hub.

Works great now.

The low end needle is just below the top needle; its on the part of the carb that's "sticking out" to the side. Shouldn't be too hard to fine, its a pretty big flat head screw.

As for the leaking problem, I'm just using an GS gasket and it seems to work fine. I haven't had any major leaking problems with my TR. Occassionally a little excess, but fore the most part its super clean.

the shaft is an asociated shaft the drive cup is sold by it self
i just rechecked my gear mesh and it is fine. ive put this car
through 4 races where the main was 40 mins long and it
has held up. the only problem being my toe link in the rear
got pushed in. that is why i put a linkage colar in the rear to
help with that problem. it has been reliable since.
