I think that some fuel hose will work as an adapter between the smallest of the rings and your prop screw.

For myself, I own a lathe....   ;D

Ditto on the fuel hose.

Also if you go to the AMA Flicker Page you will see well over 800 pictures of the NATS competition.   The link is listed in one of the NATS News issues.   I spent a couple of hours looking at pictures yesterday.

Just a question on the APC prop.  Years ago I used to love the APC 5.7x3 prop on my Cox engines.  I recently ordered one from APC, but the shaft hole was way too big and had inserts, but neither was small enough for the Cox shaft.  I verified the package didn't say for electric use.  The ones I remember from years ago had no problem fitting the Cox shaft.  Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?

Wait until Melvin gets home from the NATS and talk to him.  I think I got some adapters from him for the small APC props.  Otherwise I use brass tubing cut to length of sizes to fill the void.

Forgot to say Melvin at MBS Model Supply.

Great you guys got some fights in.   Hot with humidity.   Stock car races canceled because temp got 100 degrees.   Didn't feel that hot with breeze we have here.

Thanks for all the reports so far.  Now for those heading home watch the weather and drive safely.   But, I'm at home so you don't have to watch out for me.   Again Dave another year and hopefully the weather will co-operate for getting practice next year.

Engine set up tips / Re: Fox 35/ Brodak NVA
« Last post by Dane Martin on Yesterday at 06:32:37 PM »
I test that by filling a little cup with fuel. Hold the engine up over the cup with a fuel line running to the cup. Choke flip and see if the fuel easily travels up the line. If not, the spray bar fit is incorrect (assuming the engine is fine). I do this when building / tuning my speed engines. It's the last step, but important in my process.
