Yesterday, I got a notification that my engine has been shipped, so I guess it’ll be almost another month yet, but we’ll see what happens.
I got yanked around quite a bit from the Eachine seller on ebay, claiming it was shipped, sending me bogus tracking numbers (which were the same numbers another friend got) and finally being told US customs wouldn't let my engine through and was given the refund that went to Jin instead. All to try and save $30...Now ya tell me.....
Do you recall if you found a set screw to slide the flywheel out? I think mine has the same issue, but i have not located a flywheel set screw. Thank youI just got mine this week. I had ordered it in late March. The exhaust valve was being held slightly open by the pushrod so I was getting no compression. The flywheel with the weights attached was also assembled to close to the engine frame. This causes the catch lever to never hold the exhaust open. Fortunately I noticed this before I tried to start it. Both easy fixes and it fired right up. Also seems to be a little hard starting for me however. I'm trying to come up with a nice solution for the spark plug wire as mine came with no boot, connector or anything other than the wire. Definitely needs a cylinder oiler however. I could feel the O ring getting tight after a bit of running. I think zippo fuel helps to lubricate the cylinder.
Yes, mine has two set screws in each flywheel hub, one side came loose after the first 15 minutes of runningHi Team,
the flywheel retaining set screw is in the center of the flywheel hub, in between two spokes, way down in a drilling on mine--a standard long/short leg Allen key of suitable size is all that is needed to access it.
Hope this helps.
According to Tim in Kentuckyanyone have any idea on the size of the orings for the piston?
I have tried several kits so far with no luck on finding the correct size.
Yes, everyone that I know with one has said the same, including my own...I finally got mine today after 3 months of waiting, 6 months if you count my first order that was cancelled. Everything seems ok, but the crankshaft is a little loose in the needle bearings. Anyone else notice this?

Anyone else notice this? Mine seems a little loose also but does not seem to affect running. I think its made this way as a clearance type thing. I always use a drop of oil on bearing as well as on other parts before starting
