What failures? I haven't had any at all. I only had to seal the high end needle.

The leaking carb, thing, seems to be the norm for the Sirio .12 engine. I believe its the carb body's material - its too soft. The needles aren't able to get a strong enough bite, to seal properly and not back out of the threads. I would say, the crankshaft issue, is more than likely "user error". Sorry.

I would stay with the RR12L5. It is cheaper, and there is almost no difference between the old and the new one. My friend has a RR12L5, and I has a OS .12 TZ 5 ports. It is obvious that RR12L5 is a faster engine than my OS.

Some of the parts are standard on both cars.

V-one manuals are here:

Why should they be fixed at my end? Do we buy engines to fix up from new ourselves? Crankshaft pins fail due to the material they are made from no matter what temp the motor reaches the engine/engine makers should ensure that it doesnt happen.
