Assembling a running Saito FA-270T from a box of parts?


New $40 adventure! Wonder what it will cost by the time it's all put together? Parts for the older style 270T are near impossible to get. Might have some custom parts and modifications on this one.

Yeah, so far 1 cracked cam cover, 1 messed up, drilled out glow plug hole, 1 broken prop hub and 1 cracked rocker arm bracket.. and I'm not done going through it yet.

So, it turns out I have almost 2 whole engines in parts here. 2 different models of the FA 270T. Not sure yet whether parts are interchangeable, likely some are. Pictures shows differences between the models. It's pretty clear the casting improvements made over the years.
