I'm not familiar with the 32f. I have a 32 heli that I'll check on the model number when I get home tonight. If the head is the same as yours, and if it's in good condition I'll be happy to send it to you. I think the engine threw a rod a couple of years ago and it's been sitting in the box at home. I'll try to follow up tonight.

I'm sure mine is an SX. I hadn't heard of an "F", so thought it might be a typo. My best thought then would be to find a way to install a Helicoil if you can't find a new head. I don't know much about them but I understand they will rethread the plug hole which I presume is your problem. I don't know if you need special tools or skills, or if it's something you could do yourself, but I'm sure you could find info here.

The 32 FH is the ringed version with 1hp power.
The 32 SX comes in ABC and Rigned and produces 1.2hp

I have an OS 32 SX-H that I was using in my Raptor before I replaced it with the 37. I would be willing to sell it for US$80 plus shipping if you are interested.

Sorry, sold it on eBay. I got US$46.78 for it. Not great for me, but good for the buyer.

Tower Hobbies has most of the parts for the 32FH listed. The cylinder head is:

Now, after a year and a half, I'm having fun with it and think it might just have more power than the 32. But for a long time I wasn't getting a whole lot out of it. I think I was running it too rich, but my high speed needle was only out around 1 1/4 turns which I thought was too lean already. The other reason I was running it rich was that I would do the finger on the backplate, and it felt hot to me, but my temperature gauge was telling me that the engine was cool. So after all that, I've left my setting alone, and as the weather cooled down, I've been getting more and more power and the engine seems fine. I get plenty of smoke from the CP 30%, so I figure everything is ok. I'm very happy with the 37 now, and will continue to lean it out one click at a time until I sense I've gone too far. I put the Hatori pipe on it to let it breathe. It still won't do an inverted climb out, but that could also be because I'm not quite there in my flying talent yet. Hope that answers your question! I get a little blabby when talking helis.
