Oh man...terrible news...  I couldn't begin to count the amount of knowledge he's passed on to us members.  He'll be greatly missed for sure.

General Discussion / Re: converting glow fuel burning engine to gasoline.
« on: December 10, 2015, 01:13:10 PM »
I've been reading up on some of the conversions that people do and came across one post on RCG (maybe RCU) with this little tidbit of info..
It scared me enough for me to let others try it out 1st...if they're successful then maybe down the road...until then I'll suck up the cost of nitro...

" Now then you cannot just stick the G5 plug into any glow engine and have it run properly as a gasoline engine. Many glow engines have too high of a compression ratio and may wind up with pre-ignition or detonation occurring. You may be able to use high octance aviation gasoline to compensate though. But using some head shims may be better. Also the regular RC glow engine carburetor is calibrated for methanol fuel and is designed to run a more rich air to fuel mixture. You will likely have to do something about that. If it is a free flight or control line engine, it isn't a problem as you can adjust the needle to compensate. Methanol will still combust inside a glow engine with a wide range of air-fuel mixture ratios. But gasoline only works within a very narrow range, which is why they have fuelo pressure regulators, etc in the carburetors to help them work right. Some gas engines such as the NV-Engines GX-40 .40 gas engine changed a lot of things inside the engine too. A different combustion chamber shape, porting, piston, etc were all changed."
