Hi the  engine  I spoke of  is  a  Super Tiger   G51, and  I used the  CL  sleeve,  although  either  may work, it would be  best  if you had an ABC  piston sleeve, but the  stock ones  work, A 12 1.4 x 4 .5    prop, and , The engine was also ran by many people in the  past, Windy used one  in  a  yellow  airplane he  campaigned many years  ago , the only mods  I did  was to make a  true venturi for  it, and machined a heat dam around the  glow plug
Try it, let us know  how  it is working

If you get the guys into it Brain Gardner produced ST51 ABC piston/sleeve sets at a reasonable price. He is on this forum so would suggest a PM to him for details.
