    I have always thought the pattern engine (OS 61 RF) on this plane wasn't the correct choice. Maybe a short stroke or the OS VF. Anyway the engine is frozen and pump may or may not be any good.

    But I have some options!

    OPS Speed 60
    YS 60
    Jett 90

    Now to compare mounting patterns, weight, headers, etc.

    The rudder control arm failed (probably soon after it was built) so i decided to finally expose the problem. Thin razor saw and away i went. Not bad actually, it should patch just fine.

    Not good, brass to steel solder joint. I cleaned it up a bit while I think about how to repair.
