Talking

not a problem gen , just have to retune a lil. check to see that you dont have too much pre detonation (carbon on top of piston) too hot of plug or too lil shim . are you noticing low compression , lack of torque from the engine ?

How many gallons through the engine so far? Also was number is on the head insert next to the glowplug? Should be a 3 and most likely a standard glowplug. As for the shims, what measurement are you using, inches or MM? I assume you got the decimal wrong and meaant 0.010mm & 0.020mm shims.

The number on the head is the combustion chamber size. With you 0.30mm shimming, it should run with 30% fuel. If you take the shim out, you should be able to run the 25% but make sure it doesn't run hot or detonate.
