Is there supposed to be a head gasket in the YS 50 head. I stripped my glow plug hole so I am putting on a new head and discovered that it does not have a head gasket. I have taken the head off a long time ago and maybe I forgot to put one back on. I have noticed the engine not producing as much power. I am running Wildcat 30%.
Thanks
Joe

I talked to another heli guy today and he said that it is not needed. But I did not ask if you should install one if running higher nitro. Should if running at 30% should there be one?

There is no need to add the shim when running 30%. The shim will lower the compression and it's just not needed in the YS50.
