Hi Ed. I have 2 of the 4 liners you sent and they are all the same. I tried machining 0.3mm off of the bottom of the liner flange and still the same. Any ideas?

Hi Ziggy.
Can you please describe more, I didn't get what you try to descibe. Can you please give small hand drawings-it will be way easier for me to understand and give to you idea Please download attached pic and make sizing on it and put it back so I can see it.

thanks Todd
this week Temp will drop from 23c to I think 12C tomorrow. Have you tried going with Plug #5 in this condition?

Yeah, #5 works great. I really liked the hotter plug. Last I ran it was around 20C or so. I also dropped the head a little for the cooler weather. .35mm shims for 30% nitro. Ran like a champ! I recommend you try it.

That mark is correct but there is a groove on the side of the hole.
When I had my leaking problem Kitracer suggested i check if the groove was on the casing.Here is a pic of mine.

You could use a needle file to make the groove.

it will take more than few light cuts because you need a small needle file like Razzor suggest. but should take no more than 5 mins to file that groove.
Make sure clear it properly after, in and out side.

I used a triangle file to make the groove. I went to the hobby shop and bought some .020 piano wire as a measurement device. I slowly filed the groove until the wire fit inside the groove flush with the crankcase. That way it didn't go too big and affect pressure in the case.
