Default Graphite

I actually got the graphite for pistons as part of a model engine project that came with "Hard to Find Parts" along with plastic, bearings, and other odd parts.

But I believe this .....

is the same thing after talking to a local machine shop that uses it all the time.

Default Weedeater engine conversion for RC airplane

Hello group,

I like the new look on the forum.

I am looking for plans or drawings for the conversion of weedeater engine to fit and perform on a large scale RC plane.

Any directions to either Acad or pdf?

John, I did it years ago before the big engines got popular. It involves removing a lot of stuff that is not used and varies with the type of weedwhacker engine. Probably best bet is to Google it.
Good Luck,

No Pan. Your PDF converter won't help.
