mufflers, prop nuts and needle valves


You know that scene at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark? They wheel the crate into a warehouse full of crates that all look the same. I wonder if there's a box in there with all of the missing mufflers, prop nuts and needle valves from the engines that are offered for sale.

BWB - don’t forget about whole carburetors, too. I don’t know how many engines I’ve ended up with that were sans carburetors upon arrival.

There must also be a large box of prop locking nuts for four stroke motors....... really irritates me the amount of engines for sale that are missing these !!

I bet most of those other boxes were filled with old props. I know I got one.

It would be better if those 'accessories' were offered separately, at least they'd be available, but, NOOOooo...

Or all of that other stuff you don't want to throw away because it will be useful some day, like glow plug washers, three matching screws, a spring, and a control horn. I have a big pile of that kind of stuff on my building table.
