   I need some of the above NVA to get some old Team Race engines running again.  If you can help with parts or sources or parts, kindly contact me.

    Hi Folks:

    I would like to lap some engine parts, p&c cyl and contra pistons, but I need to know what material  and what size of grit to use.  What do you suggest?

Steve, He talks about both planes in the first post. His Yak-Yak and a friend's plane which he did not name.

That's true enough, but then you're stuck with an OS NV Assy and nothing else (pretty much) will fit. At least, nothing that is commonly available in your buddy's field kit. Besides, does the ratchet system work as well as Randy Smith's plastic collet setup? No, sorry, not even close.   Stir the pot  Steve

With profile mounted engines, there's no hole to make in the fuselage. I have a few NVA that are "ratchet" and I'm not using them because of a larger hole needed in the fuselage. I only have one "ratchet" type on my profile Pathfinder.

Steve is making plenty of sense.

I have a plastic collet type NVA and I cannot remember where I got it?

I'd like to see a photo of Randy's offering. I'm convinced it would be my choice.

Photo anyone?

     Hello All:

     The good news is that the ST is running very well! The bad news is it was my fault that the piston-cylinder fit was off.

     I had placed the engine in storage with the fasteners left a bit loose.  When I tightened the head screws, the inch abated and the engine would start one flip hot or cold!

    The engine is a converted Team Race G20/15D that still has the Tee Dee .049 venturi fitted to the case.  It is now a glow engine.   It is too small to permit the engine to be leaned out to a rich four stroke mode.  I ran it fast with a small prop just to see if it would run.  All of the parts are new but assembled to make a running engine.

     Anybody have a nva or just a "banjo"  for a  Tee Dee .09 or .15 engines?  Where may I purchase these items?

                                                                                              Thanks for the replies,

                                                                                              Frank McCune

Great, Steve. I'm looking forward to seeing your new Streak. I love those planes. Bob Zambelli watched me fly my Norvel Big Mig powered BFS and said it was the best flying Baby Streak he'd ever seen. Coming from the Z, that's quite a statement. And compliment too. But it's nothing special, just an old beater, but built straight with a superior power plant on a bladder. I use the muffler and a 5.5 or 5.25" Master airscrew prop. It's a cut down MA 6x3. If I have to cram it into my small circle by the house on 35' lines, an APC 6x2 tames it and it's still stupid fast but manageable. Fun. Pure 1/2A fun, it can't be beat.
