Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

OK OK OK.........since this is an "ENGINE" i got a rising question?!?

When installing your engine who uses blind-nuts & socket Head bolts or Bolts of choice and lock nuts. Your thoughts?.......

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

I prefer socket head bolts if the standoffs are threaded. And bolts if there's no threads just cause there's not much choice there lol.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Very dependant on airframe, and engine size, and style (4 Stroke glow 50cc, or 160cc 2 stroke gas).
Hope this helps.

For specific insulations, ask the learned Monkey.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Dont use blind nuts. They are usually just a soft metal of some sort

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Been using blind nuts for 25 years whenever possible. never an issue on any size engine.

Problem nowadays is the cheap Ct plywood used for firewalls. It is "no good" for any installation! another is the firewalls are so thin you can only use very short blind nuts...and that's "no good"!

Scrap the Ct, use the real deal wood and blind nuts...you're golden forever!!

No hassle, easy install blind nuts....think about it folks!!

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Yes, the learned Monkey has yet to meet the guy that can strip a 1/4-20 blind nut.
As size was not stipulated. That in itself leaves a lot to interpretation.

Maybe in the east.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Perhaps some of the issue is, if your holes aren't drilled exact it can be a problem because......the engine wont bolt on!!

Whereas the bolt.n.nut way is forgiving!

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

My Hanger 9 Sukhoi has factory installed 1/4-20 blind nuts. Should I mention the engine it contains (that's holds back for the middle east guy's).
