Long lasting fabrication of Pilot Ace B has completed the other day.
The power source was changed from Enya 29 -4B to OS 32 FX at the last minute, because of a simple reason that the latter was obtained from Yahoo Auction at 1700 yen, very cheep don't you think?
The arrived OS 32 was dusty and clogged as usual, main needle valve was lost including broken holding stay bar connected with a rear back plate, plate was alive. I recognized the motor had been thrown away after the first flight accident falling down. The plug filament is clean like new, no piled carbon on the piston top surface was recognized, crank supporting bearings are alive without any backlash.
After cleaning and reforming the broken corner of destroyed needle supporting arm on rear cover plate, reassembled I the motor. Of course careful checking of distortion in the crank case and in the crank shaft was done before that.
Also, a new 31 H carburetor in my junk box was applied on the intake hall replacing the original one that has no main needle valve.
This miserable 32 motor used by some layman user and being forgotten for long time would survive like a phoenix, I'm sure that and have good confidence to pull out it's potentials because I have enough experience to get accustomed to OS 32 motor on a former model OS 32 F.
