  1. Ohlsson & Rice 3/4 hp aircooled compact engine that has the 60 deg V8 exhaust pipes used in the Octura White Heat V r/c boat.Engine has spark and good compression and may run unless the carb needs replacement parts.Engine needs reassembled and comes with the shroud decals,new pull starter rope and knob,new sparkplug,new heat deflector shields, and as the pull starter spring clip that's usually broken or lost. Also comes with an original O& R soup can type gas tank that needs painted to match the engine shroud. You could reassemble it or part it out. Price $200 shipped in the US if you need it shipped.

    O&R Gas Tank

    Does anyone have an O&R soup can type gas tank they would want to part with ? I'm located in Clearfield,PA
  3. Could you maybe heat ,then bend the recoil wire around to make that little tab that broke off ? That recoil is only made of 3/16" material if you could find one that size.
  4. Are you looking for the cylinder cooling shields or the shroud that has the recoil starter on it ?
  5. Thanks,I think the hardware sells Stens products.
  6. Well a couple of days ago I got all the old paint stripped off the shroud using Dumont Peel Away 6. I got it primer yesterday and today I painted the Ace Hardware Banner Red to it. It's really glossy,even better in person. I might clearcoat it,but not sure. I need to see if a local hardware has the small pull starter rope and then put the pull starter back together. Probably going to be fun and then on to putting the new decals on.I'd like to find or make a soup can type fuel tank for it .If all else fails I could get a round r/c airplane fuel tank,if I can find one big enough. I may even try starting it after all is done.
  7. I've gotten the shroud stripped down to the bare metal and I'm ready for the next step.I have the ACE paint you recommended. Did you strip yours down to bare metal or just scuff up the old paint ? I know the paint says paint + primer,but would it be better to use an actual primer on the bare metal then use the paint ? My flash wouldn't go off for some reason.
  8. Thanks factory.Those pics are great.I'd like to get some made locally as the ones off ebay are expensive.
  9. Well I got the recoil apart without bending or breaking anything following Wallfish's instructions. I even got the retainer out by heating it a little with my little butane torch and then bent the ears back. I had to tap on it with a screw driver and it popped out and flew somewhere.Oh well I guess I don't really need it.I'll have to check the length of the rope and get a piece at a local hardware that has all kinds of stuff for mowers and hand held power equipment.What's a spray can red that is close to the O&R red.I got the pull starter decal and the bird one from Ebay ?
  10. I want to paint the recoil housing on my engine and need to get the recoil spool and spring out. I visited the below thread but it doesn't tell how he got it out.What's holding it in ?I tried prying it out but didn't want to put too much pressure and maybe break something.I'd also like to replace the rope while it's apart. How do you get the spring retainer clip out without breaking the little ears off ? Also is there a favorite spray can of red,made by what manufacturer ?

  12. What spark plug does this engine take ? The one that's in it is a Champion UY-6 and is one that the top cap screws on.There wasn't a cap on it but I found one off an old sparkplug.Need one that has a removable screw on cap.
  13. I got the new pull start knob today and put it on and also fixed a crack in the ignition wire with Performix Liquid Electrical Tape,so no spark would arc from the wire to the metal.
