Where did your bushing go? Did it get loose in the engine and possibly ruin the engine? I have photos of a MAX312 engine where one of the balls of the rear bearing failed and flushed into the combustion chamber:




Not a pretty sight, and it shows why you want to check your engine internals every now and then...
That is not a pretty sight.

The bushing turned into bronze dust which ended up everywhere in the engine. I think it's ruined but I may be able to salvage a few spare parts.

Does anyone have a update on the durability of the .21 DSII?
Specifically rod failure.

You took over the engine from a friend, right?
Ask him, because the manual should be in the box....

But, the manual doesn't tell you things we don't already know......

Yes, it's 2mm out of the ball link, but this is on the rich side I think, mine is about 1mm out of the ball link.....

But, just try and re-adjust the needles till the engine runs correct, slightly rich on the bottom.....

Also here in Holland on some Dutch forums, people keep asking for base settings of an engine, but an engine needs to be adjusted to the local environment (fuel type, temperature, humidity, level) so learning to adjust it yourself, is the best you can do.....

Quietstorm you saw mine run. It is a missle and also an unbelievable value when you consider what it cost and my engine is totally stock. I'll tear it down if you want to look it over.

When you compare the speed and acceleration of this engine to all the modified 35+21 engines at our track I think you have to admit the DS11 is not giving away anything in the area of performance and it is doing this at about 1/2 the price of these other engines.

I love that engine and it will be my next one for sure. I was just curious if anyone has had any rod problems with it. I know yours is fast as hell, I brag on it all the time. I saw you running with you-know-who Sunday and you all were dead even. Btw are you running the power pack?

I am running the powerpack the pipe is in bad shape due to the beating that I got at the track 3 weeks ago. I have frozen the pipe 2x but it is hopeless. However, I am not replacing it as long as the engine runs like it is now.

I love this engine! I have them in stock!

The word goes, that the DSII, with the newest Novarossi pipe, (EFRA 2054?) has 1 huge benifit, the flame out problems are solved........

MS had some problems with his engine at the EC or GP in Sweden a few weeks ago, and after switching the exhaust by the 2054, the engine was running perfectly.....

We will probably see a new Mega pipe coming during the wintermonths, with the same measurements (roughly) as the Novarossi...
