I have an old original MA gasser with maybe 30 minutes time on the engine/ ariframe. It has sat in a shed unused for 10 years. Fuel may have been left in the tank.
Worth pulling out, or into the trash it goes?

I might also buy it from you

I just picked up an old one as well, definitely clean it up and fly it, great machine. or sell it me as well. 10 years is nothing.

Do you think the engine needs dissassembly? How about the carb? Should I just fuel it and pull?

I would defienetly have a rebuilt of the carb's gaskets and I thing I would also open up the engine to inspect it.

I bet that is the older G23 with 2 bolts on the head so a new head gasket could be a good investement.

The last "old" heli I got my hands on needed to be oiled up and cleaned in every moving parts. So i would do that too.

These heli's are big tough and strong, don't take a risk by taking it up without being shure it is air worthy

Hey you can always try the engine first

No loss in doing that. Purge out the old fuel put some fresh stuff in the tank and purge out the carb as well (not back to the tank) and then try to start it and see if it runs before you go changing parts in the carb.

The 167a carb needle settings should be around 1 1/4 for high and 7/8 for low. I would start with 1 turn out on the low and 1 1/4 on the high and see how it goes and if necessary lean the low just a bit (to no less than 7/8) and you should be good. 1 1/4 on high is right on the money.

Oh yeah, take the muffler off and drop some oil like 10 drops in the cylinder before you start it, better that way than to spin it dry for the first few revs.

+++ definately do that! I would also suggest taking the plug off, cleaning it, then add the drops of oil into the cylinder, spin it a few times without the plug in but leave it in the boot to check the spark), THEN put the plug back in and go for it!

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...
