Been about 3 years since I flew the Sceadu or anythings else. Trying to get back into the hobby again.
Thouight I would get some advice as to the engine. Should I dissamble and lube or try to start it as is.
The OS 50 was put away with no special lube as I was planning to take it up again. Life got in the way and the time has passed.
I plan to re plumb everything, but thought I would see what else you folks think I should do.
Thanks and best wishes.

I would do new fuel tubing everywhere, including the clunkline.

Might be worth changing the rear bearing just for peace of mind.

Otherwise, clean it up and let it rip.

Rear bearing would be a good idea. Pull the backplate off and see what it looks like. Might like to replace the dampers too. For sure replace the batteries.

Fuel Tank
When you change out the fuel tubing make sure you check the rubber grommet on the outlet of the fuel tank, sitting dries this part out and usually you will find it split or cracks in the rubber. If you over tighten the nut to seal up the tank this will happen. It only needs to be snug enough to expand the rubber to seal.
