Need help making my nitro engine run
I just bought a Ofna Hyper 7 off Ebay, and I can't get the thing to start. I'm running O'Donnel 20% fuel, brand new O'Donnel plug, new glow starter, and a brand new starter box. No matter what I do, I can't make the thing turn over by itself. I can make it turn over on the box, but the engine just won't ignite and get going. I set the carbs to factory recommended, and nothing. Turned the high end needle up, and down to no effect. Ditto with the low end. Even tried different combinations of high and low end!
The fuel, plug, glowstarter, and starter box are brand spankin new bought today, the car is who knows how old, but seemingly in pretty good condition. The engine seems like it has plenty of compression, so it doesn't seem to me like its blown or anything. Looking down the glow plug hole it looks nice and shiny, no black or dirt or anything that I can see.
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated! I havn't ran nitro in a few years, and that was just a car to bash around the driveway with (nitro RS4). Slide carbs, 3 needles, starter boxes, and so on are all new to me. All this trouble starting the engine is reminding me of why I sold that car and went totally to electric....
