FP40 ABC sets
« on: December 04, 2017, 12:07:05 AM »
I'm looking towards next year and what to do next.

Please post your interest in ABC sets to suit the FP40. They'd be stunt timed and similar and the 5 port layout that has proven successful in the ST51 & other engines we've done.

Sounds like a great plan.  There are tons of FP40 engines that could be more useful with a more stunt friendly change to the timing.  I have a drawer full of new and lightly used FP40 and Tower 40 engines that I have ignored in lieu of the LA46, which always runs well for me.  What numbers would you change on the timing overall?

Sounds like a good idea to me, too. I have both a Tower 40 and an FP40 that I'd like to use with no fear of runaway! Put me down for two.

The FP40 is a very high quality engine.  I have been happy with the re-timed (ground on) FP40's that I have.  I do not think they are great for stunt with their stock cylinder, but an ABC set that has idealized timing for stunt would surely be a hit.

It will be very important to get the number of ports, port configuration and timing just right.  Without the constraint of working with the stock ports, the potential is huge.  Do that and you could change Stunt.

Not me, but bear in mind that a BG ABC FP.40 P&L would also fit an FP .35 and make it a .40, much as you can change an FP .25 to an FP .20.  y1 Steve   

PS: Yes, you'll need a .40 head, or a lathe to make a .35 head into a button head.

Hi Brian,
That's great I think that's a great start.  My question is this, why don't you choose the HP 40?  Way better motor, lighter and has ball bearings also.  Ii have a Gold Cup 40 true ABC (no ring) and what a power house (ask Randy) with or without a pipe.  Maybe not as popular as the FP but way more power.

Later,
Mikey (Mike Pratt),

PS, I Take two p&l sets for FPs if you run them. H^^

Hi Mike, I actually already have a production run of the HP40 in progress. All are spoken for at this time. They are stunt timed and a 5 port arrangement. The FP40 will be the same if I get enough interest to do a run of them.

FP-40 stock was only okay, so I retimed it and then really liked it.  This is a great idea!  I'll take 2 sets, please.

Please make sure you talk to Ron Burns about your mods.  He modded an FP-40 years ago for Jimmy Paul and it was one of the nicest sounding stunt runs I ever heard!  It sounded like a completely different engine!

What did you do on the ST-60?  I'm interested in hearing more about that.

Thanks,
Scott

I would estimate them at around $130AUD shipped to the USA, $140AUD shipped to Europe & South America. That's around $100-$106US. The set will include piston/liner/rod/pin/shims.

Could you provide some information about these?  Are they ported exactly the same as from OS, or have the port heights, size, shape, number, etc. been changed?  If retimed, it would be nice to know the changes that were made or at least what to expect.

They will be typical of all my other stuff and will utilise port timing etc that has proven to work. Exh timing will be 138 and transfers 126. The boost port will be split like I did for the ST51 and am doing for the HP40. So it will be turning the motor into a user friendly purpose built stunt engine.
