Do you know if the timing on the MCP and the NS are the same??
What timing are looking for?

I'm just curious if the two motors are the same. I wanted to get a NS but none was available at the time. I ended up getting the MCP instead.

My guess is that the MCP and NS12S3 have slightly different timing at the crank. I think I read it on the internet somewhere. I have a SX12 (nonMCP) as a S3 but I haven't compared the cranks. The S3 is definitely more powerful than the SX12 but it doesn't have the MCP piston which is supposed to help increase power.

Let us know how the MCP runs compared to other engines. I have a friend who's looking at them. Good luck with it!

Uhm... There's a very reasonable chance of the intake timing on the crank of the NovaMega and Nova units to be different, as basically happens with other engines, many parts share the same origin, but are finished to the specs of the final user, cranks on Mega, RB and Nova are different when to timing is related, each one chooses their own one.

Does anyone know if the Nova NS12 has this 'MCP' technology on board? Thanks

Finaly got my Piston/sleeve/conrod sets on my hands, will post pics tonight or tommorow.
I wish some fuel company sponsor me with fuel for testing-6 sleeves and 12 pistons to test, will need 10-12 gallons

Default Pinch at TDC

If I remove the glow plug and move the piston to TDC there's no longer a pinch. Would that definately mean it's time to get a new P/S? There's still compression with the glow plug in and I can rock it back and forth at TDC without losing compression. But I'm wondering about the pinch. Without the pinch then with the motor warm I'll probably lose compression.

In my opinion not nessesarely you need to change P/S set, just look the performance. If it is stay ungenged, I don't recomend you to go for new. Actualy the best performance on good enine will be, when there is not a lot of compression (in resonble limit).
You got to be very carefull, I am talking about good built engine.

I agree with TG, guage by performance. It seems to me that the pinch and the associated friction will only generate more heat and stress on the moving parts. I think compression without extreme pinch is optimal since the piston can move freely with minimal resistance.

Default Glow Plug length

I was comparing an OS A3 plug to a McCoy MC8 the other day and the OS A3 was a shorter plug. How will the length of the plug affect performance? Or is plug filament temp more important?
