Default Engine Four Stroking

If an engine is still four stroking, would that mean its not completely broken in yet? Because when i was breaking it in I noticed it did it some times. Anybody know? Thanks in advance

It's an expression. It means so rich that it spits and blubbers like a four stroke with a miss.

20% byrons gen 2. You are probably going to tell me to switch to 30% but im not doing that because i still have fuel to go thru.

If it's already rich, why would you give it more fuel?

http://s453.photobucket.com/albums/q...t=103_7736.flv
You can here the sound im talking about at these times:
00:29, 00:42, 00:50, 00:57, 1:18, 1:30, and 2:03
Is it normal or is it not completely broken in yet>?

by the way you are driving i would say it was not broke in yet,but the bottom end is loading up because it is never cleaning out. si yes it is four stroking in the sense but how much fuel has been run through it?

Sound like your bottom end is to lean and the top is rich... Plus the idle is way off.

Thats an old video. Thats when i first broke it in. I just posted it to explain the sound that it is making. It has since been thru 3/4 of a gallon. So if its still four stroking, does that mean its not fully broken in?
