My First Electric article by Dave Polley.

David Polley gives up his secrets to reliable engine performance.

Fellow Club Members,

Hobby Express is now carrying the "Morgan" line of Model fuels including Omega 15% for 2 stroke engines. I have personally used the Omega for years, and I find to be an excellent performing model fuel. It is a castor / synthetic blend of fuel specifically designed for ABC engines, and engines that run especially hot, because of cowls, or other mounting environments. The castor / synthetic blend also runs cleaner and has less residue and build up from castor oil baking on the engine head and muffler. The idle setting my engines is very stable and smooth as some of you know when I fly my twins. I don't even need an "idle bar" type glow plug even with the engines inverted. They have a whole assortment of model fuels for 4 stroke engines, helicopters, and pylon racing fuels as well. All you have to do is ask Scott to order what you want and he can get it in a couple of days. I know he has the Omega in stock right now.

Secondly, The K&B company has sold off to a company called "Model Engine Company Of America" of MECOA They are now carrying the K&B Engine line and their Glow Plugs. As some of you know, I have been a fanatic about K&B glow plugs, especially on my O.S. engines. It has been very hard for our hobby shops to get these plugs for the last couple of years, and I have had to mail order them in the past to keep up a supply. What is funny is that, I end up keeping the plugs I have on my engines, and end up giving away all of the plugs I have purchased for others to try. Training nights and training weekends have been where most of the plugs end up as gifts to new people who are having trouble getting their new engines running.

Hamilton Hobbies, and Hobby Express are now going to start carrying these plugs in stock again. Hobby Express has ordered 36 for their hobby shop, and John Snell has just e-mailed me back from Hamilton Hobbies, that they are ordering 24 to have in stock in the very near future.

I know many of you have your own style of fuels and plugs that you are used to, but if you want to perk up that engine a bit. I would encourage you to try the K&B plug "1L" with the Omega 15% glow Fuel and give it a try. I think you will see a difference it what you have been using.

Just letting everybody know. Thanks

David A. Polley
