    Nitro RC plane motor

    Hey what’s up guys long time no see

    I saw this rc plane motor at the local thrift store for 7 bucks and I just had to pick it up!

    The cylinder is pretty gummed up but looks good! Does anyone know the brand and value of this thing?

    The cylinder says “MAX OS 10” and in the crank case it says “made in Japan”

    From what I’ve determined it’s a 1971 Max OS PET III 099, does anyone know about these?

    the gumming is straight up castor, couple options to clean this badboy

    zep orange de-greaser - works great but will probably take a ridiculous amount of soaking and light scrubbing with a soft bristle brush

    antifreeze - toxic, but ethylene glycol will disolve the castor easy and leave behind a super clean surface with almost not wetting of chemical residue, but must be done with ppe and proper disposal methods after use, parts must be rinsed with hot water and a soft bristle brush and dried with a light towel, compressed air is available.

    these are my methods, i recommend them

    Use gas, just soak the bastard in case after tearing it down. It will clean right up with compressed air.

    Out of date, under powered. Some guys collect them, eGay would be best.

    Yeah I just cleaned it with gas, I want to make something with it though just not sure what, when an idea arises I will post here.

    But what’s the deal with this motor basically like a g2d of nitro motors?
