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?

Thanks,
John

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,
Julian G.
