If in doubt, you can always ask Dino !
I know I can ask Dino, but I just want to see how other people break in their engines. InitialD, where are you from?

Perhaps some of your racers over there do the same method as we do here in Malaysia.

We break in the engine at very rich needle settings (especially the HSN). Wide open the throttle on the starter box for about 10 tanks or so. This method is very fast. Lean the needle settings a little and drive around the track on the rich side for another 3 or 4 tanks or so.

Some engine are very difficult to break in and may take more tanks to do it. If you're not certain the engine is broken in, take off the heatsink and button head of the engine and look into the inner sleeve to see of the upper portion line is already "polished". If it is, then you're engine is broken in.

Default Re: Fuel Tank & Pressure Line!

Hey Guys,

Something i noticed today was that while being refueled when the lid is closed it would inject a heap of fuel into the carby and flood the engine and on numerous occasions the motor ending up stalling. Any suggestions? Do i need to run a longer pressure line from the exhaust or are we simply filling the tank with too much fuel?

SN

I have no idea and never experiencing this kind of problem.
Maybe your low mixture needle is set too rich.

What I do know is when I came to refueling a bit late, engine is already leans out and make the tank temp is bit higher. So when you fill with fresh fuel (I assumed its cooler) and snap the lid back it will change your carb setting instantly.
I suggest you to blip 3-4 times before squezing the throttle.

Goldfinger: If this was the case wouldn't other people be having the same problem when they refuel?

Yes !!
And 1 more thing when you came too late, bubbles from the pipe pressure line.
The bubbles will leans your engine badly.
Serpent with AFL cap is reducing this, and you can see other car offering a new style of cap. The goal is mainly to reduce this bubbles when you apply throttle.

Whats the solution though, I have never had this problem before with other cars i have had, apart with the normal fuel tank problems with the NTC3.

Somebody mentioned that the track surface is nice. Does not have a long straight and there is a fair bit of technical layout and islands.
Yes, I plan to go up because it coincides with Raya Haji. From the pictures it looks great, will let you know!

Run a fuel filter in the fuel line to the carb and lengthen the pressure line.

You could also teach your pitman how to pitt you without slamming the fuel tank shut. Remember you can use the shutting of the tank lid repetavily to prime your engine.




And on a side note.... is it just me that gets pissed off when someone cant be bothered to trim the picture they want to post? I ***ing hate having to scroll each subsequent message side to side to read it.

HAHAHAHAHAHA

Actually its about time Andrew had some issues with pit stops. I can remember him pitting for me and DROWNING my car in fuel.

It does sound that the bottom is rich and loading the crankcase whilst refuling. Shutting the lid is just putting it over the edge.
