Franko, I was told by the guys over at the OS TZ thread that to use OS plugs only, the Italian plugs might leak. Although haven't tried the Italian plugs with it yet. OS Plus isn't something to desire but if this motor only works with their own plug, then so be it.

The taper on the 2 plugs are different. If you start with an Italian (Nova, RB, etc.) plug and go to an OS plug, you won't have a problem. But if you start with an OS plug and put in an Italian plug, chances are you'll have a leaking problem.

Ah... thanks, good info! Too bad I started it with the OS plug already... oh well.

I did not use any of the Lath type screws when I put the kit together. I prefer button head type and the selection was better with std. type screws.
If you have already used metric it may not be advisable to switch to std. as they are slightly smaller.

No, but keep an eye out for a used or good deal on the JR 9000S and 9000T. I've been a long time KO guy and this year I switched to the JR servos.

I don't understand how you can overfill your shocks. Aren't you suppose to top them off, take out the air bubbles and then close them up? How are you putting in more shock oil than can fit in the shock body?

The upper arm is okay. But Im with trouble with the lower arm. Hes grasping a lot, and the movement is not free like the upper, any advice?

Thanks a lot and congratulations for the site

I've added "bleeder holes" to the shock caps so they self-bleed. I, also, glued the bladder to the shock cap end so the oil doesn't creep under the bladder and throw off the dampening. Fill them up, screw on the cap and the excess oil will seep out the hole. They come out perfect every time.
