    Dan and Pete, I think the 15x6 rating for the 1.15 @ 8,800 has to be a misprint. In the Clarence Lee test of the 1.00 I linked above, the 1.00 turned...

    72, if you don't mind give us the whole skinny, prop, fuel, plug, max rpm, idle rpm etc, it's all good stuff to read. Thanks

    Sad, that is a great engine even though I never actually owned one, I had a 1.20 AX for a while, another great engine.

    72, it sounds like the 1.00 was run inverted for much of its life, my guess it just needs good clean up. The new bearings are $11.88 and fre shipping...

    I'd be real curious as to whether the 1.15 was actually more powerful than the 1.00, the 1.15's benchmark prop is listed as 15x6 @ 8,800. The 1.00's...

    The .82 is only slightly less powerful than .91 but weighs less, it's an even trade.

    I do likewise, I use the Saito .0039" tool for the Saitos and the Enya. .002" for Enyas. I don't have any other brand right now.
