yep, I've been running a 24a on mine with a bigger tailwheel and still plenty of clearance. I put a new 60 in it and flew it this weekend, runs like a champ and had an absolute ball with it! Glad its back in the air.

not real sure, they cleaned the carb and then ran it, ran perfect for them. In the meantime I had bought this new one. I had several issues out of the box with it, the ignition went out after a few flights, the pickup went shortly thereafter, had a fuel draw issue, then another ignition. I honestly think it had something quirky in the ign that caused the pickup to fail or vice verse and the carb had some crap in it or something. I tried EVERYTHING before I sent it in, guessing they swapped some parts out before they sent it back

Gasoline ?


I see where you had fits with a high quality engine. Have you considered that your gasoline may be more than 10% ethanol ? It is rumored that in some parts of the country this may be the case, it is not monitored. Marinas sell 100% gasoline which would give you a reference. There was a push to increase ethanol content to 15% or more but auto makers told them they would not guarantee the vehicles unless E85 rated.
