Working on getting the last jug off, the one that's stuck.
But, I can now see that there is side to side playof the connecting rods on the crank. The piston end seems to be fairly snug, no lateral side to side play on the rod. Would this indicate that these are "E" rods o,r is there not enough evidence at this point.
I can see the needle bearings on the connecting rod/crank shaft connection...looks like a cut away cage of sorts.
Thanks in advance-

Rick, I met you at Mentone and you said you would consider selling your Twin Star. If you are serious, I would like to come up and get you to give me a flight. I am the sheriff of Escambia County Alabama and want a tandem gyro for law enforcement use, I like the Twin Star and I am serious about purchasing a gyro within the next couple of months. You can email me at [email protected] or call me at 251-236-0817 if convenient. Thanks, Grover Smith
Hello Rick. What is a 72 HP MAC with 2-ring pistons, without carb, ignition, and hub worth? Trying to sell a low-hour spare I picked up a couple years ago... If you or someone you know is interested please have them give me a call! Dave Martin 269-350-1178
Hi Rick I am a Gyro pilot, flying a Magni M16 in South Africa. Am involved in a project to rebuild a Benson B 8M to original specs, for display at fly-ins here To complete the project we are short of a Propeller Hub for a McCulloch 4318 engine. Can you help with the part, or the names of possible suppliers? Thanks Val Field [email protected]
Hey Rick. Yes I am the one that has my name on your last suspension kit. I am hopefully getting closer to getting a RAF. My wife and and are headed this weekend to see one over by Peoria IL. I'll keep you posted. Give me a yell if someone wants to grab the suspension kit so I can have first dibs. I think I will know something in the next couple of weeks. Thanks!!!!
Hi Rick. I read a post that said you were the man to talk to about a KB2. I'm just starting my build but i'm missing one key element, PLANS! I thought i could just take some measurements and copy a friend's. I found out how bad of an idea that was after doing more reading. Too much precision to take a chance and kill myself. I have looked everywhere for plans and just can't come up with anything. Please help. Thanks a lot!
I am out at the field, waiting on plugs to come in tomorrow.
Run the mac this eve. cyc 1 & 4 was at 325 degree,
cyc 2 & 3 was cold at 135 degree.
If changing the plugs does not cure this.
What would you recommend, or how to troubleshoot this
Thanks [email protected]

Any thoughts you have would be helpful and appreciated need price on cylinder may have to replace it. I set the cdi @ 127 BTDC that thing looks and work great thank you
Will your breaks fit my old Bensen that I bought at the convention? It has a 1" hollow axel and it looks like a 3/4 axel will fit inside. If not then I need to make new 3/4blocks. What would shipping be to Latrobe, Pa. zip: 15650.
