Saito FA50 on test stand..
« on: January 29, 2011, 12:47:43 PM »
Hi guys, I got the Saito FA 50 Reassembled yesterday and on the test stand today. I ran three 5 oz tanks through it and progressed from one minute runs  through four minute runs. The first starts were aided by the electric starter and by the third tank, hand proping was easy enough. The last tank full gave very steady running and I am impressed with the apparent power that the engine makes.I am looking forward to getting a Brodak P 40 built and seeing what th engine will do when put to work. Thanks all for the tips and info.         Phil
