Ryan,thanks for your suggestion about rubber coated spring. I will try when I find one.

You need to find a new manifold like this one. So that the manifold will not burn the cord if your tuned pipe is on the left side.

Thank you,
Dino

Just a bump and a quick report. I ran in the sts .28 this weekend. I am really happy with it. It still has breakin shims and is very rich but will wheelie my very heavy 6.5 kg savage after the rich low end clears out at about 3meters. My STS engines arrived completely clean of any debris and I must say they were in the best shape of any engine I have ever purchased on initial inspection.

Thanks dino and sts for your help.

How easy is it to make it roto start compatible?

We are producing the new rear plate now. You can buy the replacement about one month later. But I prefer to use the pull-start because I don't need to bring the starter.

Awesome!!

That's just made it a whole lot easier to decide. I'll have a chat with Paul at cleveland models tomorrow! I prefer electric start, so for me being able to convert the STS .28 to Roto start would be a big selling point. I keep my Pullstarts for back-up in my pit box.

You mentioned that you're just one month away from this part being available - will that include overseas customers?

Nice one Dino!!!

Regards

Horatio

The .28 and our D21B are using the same conrod.
Please see the .28 exploded view

I figured if this engine is good enough for JFC, it's good enough for me!

I'm going to contact Paul today and find out some prices.

As a side note, I've also been offered some other real nice goodies including a LSP with 2 decent engines. Just waiting to see how much it's going to cost including the shipping.
