All depends on the clutch you use. If you use a Centax, then your measurements will all be off. You really need to put a shim behind the collet. That way you get the proper spacing of the clutch.

ok, thxs for the quick replies, i dont really remeber if i put the correct size shim between the bearing and the collet, i dont remeber if i even put a shim there!, lol, i tried taking my centax clutch assembly off to figure out wat i did, but the nut that holds the flywheel on wouldnt come off, lol, so i guess i'll never know!

Well I mounted the engine on my NTC3 and did 1 tank at idle and 3 tanks rich(temp between 112-116F). So far, so good. 30% with McCoy #9 plug. Only problem is the ball mount on the slide carb where the throttle linkage connects to is slightly smaller than normal. When the ball cup attaches to it, it easily can be disconnected. I know my ball cup is not too worn because my RB and Sirio linkages are nice and snug. i had to use my Sirio ball mount on the STS engine.

By the way, on my Kawahara Centax, I didn't put a shim behind my collet. i had better clearance with a Sirio collet than with the AE collet. I might switch back though and shim it.

Do you wrap your Rx in a balloon? if so, take a little square of the rubber balloon and capture it between the cup and ball....it won't come off any more. Try to get 2 layers thick.

i didnt install i need a special engine mount im sure pinnacle will know and i dont want to take it outta the bag since dust and other crap will get in the carb exhaust etc etc.... i have a question
It says that before installation into a cae please remove back plate of the engine and clean the machining swart etc. from within the engine using fresh fuel.... well im not sure wat they mean by machining swart and "etc." wat do they mean by etc? and wat is a machinig swart? is it the after run or watever they put in it? do i have to clean the pist/sleeve or somtin? i wish they had diagrams

depends on the weather which I'm sure you know but 6's are good all-around. 7's for hotter, 5's for really cold. On 30% though I've ran the same 6 plug for ages though in an RB since June.

Well......to tell you honestly this is my first .12 size turbo ( I usually buy non-turbos)....I just want to know if the turbo plugs used in .21 engines are the same as the .12 size ones.

well I actually should be asking you what are the turbo plugs used mostly in .21's

I just started in 1/8th, using a 6 now but that's just the first plug I've tried - what are you running in your 21's on 30%?

STS wants you to completely dis-assemble the engine, and CLEAN the goop off the parts. I assume this stuff is for rust control, and it is always a possability to have machining flakes inside the engine, even your best makers have this problem.
Just clean it with the fuel you use... piston, sleeve, crank the whole nine yards. Put it back together and break it in.
This just shows you how STS really cares about the end user!
