The purpose of the idle Bar was to keep the intake charge in a two stroke from drowning the plug since the intake charge was blowing right up at it. The intake charge in a fourstroke is directed downward and away from the plug. Four stroke plugs are designed to hold heat longer due to the engine firing every other stroke.

What I have discovered is that if you use the appropriately sized (small) body drill, you can drill through the epoxy glass engine mount and then tap the mount with threads for an appropriately sized machine screw (6-32 on the smaller sized engines). I have been doing this since the seventies and I have yet to have a mount strip its threads or for a bolt to come loose once properly tightened. Yes, I was skeptical when I first heard of it too, but you can't argue with positive/no failure results. I have built and flown many, many models since the late sixties and seventies.

If your threads are stripping out in your epoxy glass mount, your body drill is too large. Unfortunately, I don't remember the number of the body drill for 6-32 thread cutting.

After you drill the appropriately sized through hole, are you using a tap to thread the hole, or are you able to cut the threads just by screwing in the machine screw itself.

I use a regular tap to cut the threads, Jim.

I resumed my RC flying in 1990 and my motorcycling in 2007 at age 65, my wife has bought several planes and engines for my RC hobby over the years and bought this Harley for me in 2007.
