From looking at the pictures of the manifold package, it turns out that the dude I bought the engine from cut the dampners for some reason.
Sent him a PM, because the pipe is unflyable as is....
Oh, the problems with buying used....
Does anyone know where just the silicone grommets can be found of if there is a suitable substitute?

Chris

EDIT--------------------------------------------------------
Got a .57 and pipe from a fellow pilot this week.
WHen I bolted the pipe on to the motor, I noticed that the pipe was VERY loose on the header (manifold).
After disassembly, I noted that there was no compression of the silicone dampners, in fact, the metal standoff looks to be about 1mm too long to allow for the parts to seat appropriately.
Any input?

Chris

Hey Chris,
You can get the groments from GrandRC, Experiance rc, Rediheli...

You can use the Groments from the RJX,Hatori,Kasama 90 header's as well.

You bet anytime.

Also ton the groment's their are 2 different thicknesses per side of the groove. If you look at the groment were the groove is one side of the groment will be thicker you want that to be facing the header when installed in the pipe.
