Just move the 16 Oz fuel tank to the tail. The engine only weighs 850 Grams. (30 Oz).

If the Cox .049 Reed Valve is not eough power for Dil-Bod then I just reassembled an engine that WILL get the job done!

My friend Jack Sheeks here in Indy bought an engine that needed a new part to make it run. He bought a new cam for the engine and then asked me to reassemble the engine. It is now ready for the test bench to see how much power it has.

Oh, Did I mention that it is a SAITO FA-150 Four Stroke rated at 2.5 HP.

Clancy,

They run all right but I'd still take a comparable 2 cycle over a 4. More power and less weight. And please don't tell me that people buy it for the cool sound. That image dissapeared long ago. oh and you can make any 2 cycle sound like a 4 with the right muffler. we should have to comply with European noise standards. Then you would not have tongue mufflers and pseudo mufflers being sold here. What I'm saying is that even their large gas models are barely maiking a sound when they are in the air.

The Saito 150 did not come with a muffler!
