Default 1st 1/8 engine - picco p9r evo 2

this is my first 1/8 engine so bear with me on what might be some "noob" type questions . . .

first - I got this off ebay and I'm wondering where can I get parts for this engine off the internet ? I want some head shims and the venturi set (7 mm, 8mm, 9mm). Who carries stuff like that on the net ?

second - I want some head shims for it and I'm wondering if any .21 shims will work ? Are all .21's the same size (I get that there are differences in thickness but I mean diameter) ? Will nova shims work on a picco engine ?

third - I pulled the glow plug out of it and noticed that there wasn't a washer between the plug and the motor. Is this right ?

fourth - not one word in the manual about glow plug recommendations. will be using the engine in primarily humid and hot Florida, if that makes any difference. Suggestions ?

thanks in advance

Mike

try http://www.kamikazetoysandhobbies.com/home.htm for parts, glow plug doesnt have a washers as its a turbo plug. i would use medium cold to cold turbo plug for the conditions, with shim u can measure against the picco shim u have and if they are same u can use them. there should be enough to start with in a new engine.

I only saw like 1 1/2 pages of engine parts there. They had some shims from Nova that were .21, that's why I asked the question about the shims.

Thanks for the info . . .

Default Pico P9R

Sam is out of town for the race this week, but when he gets back, call him.
He does carry everything you would need for the Pico engine.
I have bought 5 or 6 Picos from him, and he also does the modifications on the engines, and they just scream when he is finished with them

I do most of my "shopping" late at night . . .

I guess I'm just wondering if anybody knows of an internet vendor where you can just punch in a part number and order it. Is there one that anybody knows of ?

thanks for the input
Mike

You can get all the Picco parts that you need from
NITROHOUSE.com. They are the distributor of Picco
engines and parts for the U.S..
