20x 6 or a Vess 20A seem to work the best for me and the OS engine and the slick.

soo...only thing left for me to bolt on os gt33 engine is to await for cmala standoffs and propeller... for breakin decided xoar 18x8, but i had a protek 19x8 laying around... so questions...

a) os manual states to leave 3cm free space around air intake (i assume air intake is that round hole wich im covering with choke lever? ) so, do i need to cut my firewall for that?

b) that protex had some STRANGE prop hole, less than 6mm, so i tried my skills on drill press and looks like a) prop shaft really is 8.1mm instead of 8 so 8mm hole doesnt fit... and b) looks like i didnt went 90* somehow... not by much, but still, should i discard the prop or is it salwagable?

d) spark plug has on 1 side threads and on another side heksagonal(or whatever) belt? so i assume ignition should plug over that heksagonal part?

apart from that, in setting up, everything seems quite not so complicated lol...

oh, if that prop shaft is 8.1mm those prop bushings that I sent you might not fit. They are 8.1mm ID.

well, we will see, but its 1am here and ihave to get up at 6 soo.... me off to bed...

but theoretically, if they have 8.1 id why wouldnt they fit? 8mm is a TAD not enough so 8.1 should be ok? but we will see! just hopefully they wont get lost in mail like my last powerpole order...

aah, if that helps, i could mount a falcon 15x7 on os gt33 with no mods... so ID of falcon 15x7 is perfect...

Don't know what's in the water up there in Canada, but I have met them all over the World and they are some of the nicest and most content people.
