I like O'Donnell fuel (to compare for what I have run so far and what is available on our market), it doesn't leave any resedue, keep engine clean even without after run oil, I never use after run oil, I never clean my motors till I need to change something-I am too leasy for it. It is not I recomend to do the same, it just what I am doing and never have had problems like rust or varnish.
I run about 60-80 gallons of O'Donnnel fuel since I use it-have no problem with it at all.

Oxidation process going much faster when temperature is higher then ambient, so it is possible that rusting process began during the first start-it just assumption, not a statment. Actualy rusty marks on corod telling me that oxidation was during the run, not in storing process. If you store engine with water present-only steel parts will rust, Aluminium will stay clean. As I saw on picture it is that there was a flow which brought rust on aluminium parts.

thanks for that i never thought about the relative humidity, you could be correct , seems logical anyway . so people in the uk should take more care when leaving unburnt fuel in their engine's

..and I thought you liked my fuel

Btw, over here I'm running Tornado fuel and this crap turnes my engines black inside. No deposits, just black metal. Looks like cheap, impure methanol. I guess I'll start looking for a source of nitromethane again....

Who, me?

I did try it in the states, but didn't like it.
I ran O'Donnell until I made my own fuel.

O'Donnell is good stuff but not available here.

You've got the "stock" version. The full option version has the ceramic bearing, black body and red paste in the crankshaft.

The porting are all exactly the same.

The box says "Stock Version". There are two stock version if I believe. One which has a kinda "straight" head, white body, no paste in the crankshaft.

The other "stock" option does not have the ceramic bearings and the darkened crankshaft but still has the red paste in it.

Right, it looks strange but maybe you have the standard JP-FX.

Or you should probably consider replacing the bearings, try to save the crank and get a BRB piston/sleeve set from Palmaris Racing.
where can i get these palmaris racing piston and sleeve's ?
i take it they better than the jp one's ?
are they a direct replacement for the jp piston and sleeve?
