Norm, a little late with a reply, but my .02 on these engines. I have a Chinese 45, an Italian .61 abc and an Italian .90 ring. The 61 and the 90 are at least 20 years old, the 45 is around 8. They all start by hand, run and idle as well as any other engine built. I have crashed the 61 straight into the hard ground which resulted in the entire engine, mount and firewall pushing all the way back past the leading edge and only had to replace the needle valve/spray bar assembly which was bent. After cleaning, the engine started and ran as if nothing happened. These are strong well built engines.
I broke them in exactly as the manufacturer directed and run them on approx 7% fuel. I mix a gallon of Morgan 5% coolpower and a gallon of 10% Omega. This ends up being about 7% nitro, with the oil being 17% synthetic and a little bit of castor.
The carb seems to be the thing that everyone complains about- old technology-can't transition. BS!! It worked then and it works now. You just have to actually pay attention and take your time to set it correctly. If you do this, you will not regret buying one. Chinese or Italian.
