Hello 1EVO RRR DRIVER, I have never heard of this, let me know whats going on. I have 8 total 2012 and 2013 engines and not one has leaked yet and I run my engines pretty hard but smart & safe. Please notify me with this issue. I will not know about these issues unless I am told. I have tore down a few engines in my area and it is not the engines that were the problem. I have had one bad bearing but that was after 3 gallons, crap I'm happy if it only cost 35.00 to change and have the engine good again.

Thank you Billy

Hello everybody, this thread is for KEVCO/PICCO Racing and customers to ask question, learn and help everyone understand the PICCO engine. This will allow us to help you if there are any problems, especially if there is a manufactures problem or bad batch of parts that either party might know about. PLEASE, you must notify us first before we can talk to the manufacture about any problems that are brought to our attention. If there is a problem please notify us directly first, we are not trying to hide anything on the internet, but in general it sounds like we are not doing anything about this bearing problem. You must also understand that most problems are fixable or taught if you want to learn.

Are you sure its the front bearing?? because me and a friend had the same problem and finally the problem was that the input needle seat aluminum washer didn't seal properly....we put some silicone and no more engine leaking...

Follow these steps when breaking in your Picco

KEVCO RACING


1. Before cranking engine, add a little oil to top of piston and to inside of carburetor. (Factory oil could
have settled to bottom of case).
2. Set clutch heavy (engages almost immediately when engine revved).
3. Using heat gun (especially cold weather), heat head right before cranking engine.
4. Always prime engine before every start (spin over on box letting fuel flow thru carburetor).
5. Run 1/2 tank very rich on bench to clear engine and remaining 1/2 at idle.
6. Put immediately on track and finish 1st bottle of fuel on the track at rich setting. Temp not important during this phase.
7. Do not allow two speed to shift to 2nd gear (engine should be too rich to do so anyway).
8. After completing 1st bottle let engine cool off. Remember to rotate piston to bottom of the sleeve, always, when finish running.

9. Re-set clutch back to normal.
10. Lean top end needle two hours before starting on the 2nd bottle of fuel.
11. Once back on track, make sure its lean enough that engine heats to 180-200F degrees.
12. Run this way until engine goes rich again. Lean enough to keep temperature above 180.
13. Repeat this process throughout the 2nd bottle.
14. As you continue to run this will happen occasionally throughout the 3rd bottle.

Hello Low et, I have never ran a P9R but I will try to find out some info if I can. I know that the 2012 and 2013 PICCO engines have been very impressive and are really good engines. I strongly feel that these engines are the best they have ever been.

Thank you Billy

The new Picco engines are faster, and more reliable than the P9R.
