Royal Blue rebuild
Posted by Mononflyer on Thursday, January 2, 2014 8:11 AM

Hey All,

I have my Uncle's 350 Royal Blue engine and I am getting ready to give it a massive overhaul.  It is pretty trashed from heavy use and I decided to put smoke, and a full speed can motor with a flywheel and a dalee e-unit. 

Everything fits ok and the can motor works great, but I have not rebuilt the smoke unit yet.

My question is how well the smoke unit would work since can motors operate on a lower voltage, and would it be better to use a half speed can motor.
