And yes.... before you say anything.... I put it together right, everything was perfect (well i thought it was anyway). All the carb settings were right also.

I'm getting a new engine, it's about 9 months old anyway!
Question 1) where is the fuel coming from?

It's coming from the flywheel bearing and the pullstarter. My pullstarter is also ratshit!

Question 2) is there resistance if you wind the engine over by hand?

OK heres the thing, we have ascertained that its not the bearings, and it sounds like we have compression.

1) you actually have bugger all compression but the fuel in the combustion chamber is providing the resistance and also causing the fuel abundance. Remove glow plug and check.

The glowplug is fine and dandy.

The problem could also be caused by the o-ring at the bottom of the carb base nor sealing correctly (a common problem) or the o-ring on the rear plate not sealing correctly.(a common problem.

Default engine problems

Hello.
Im' having problem again with my GS15R engine,
When i apply full throattle, the engine seems to get to a certain RPM or speed and just stops and dies. It seems like the engine overflows.. but i really don't know. IF it was overflow then when i restart the engine it would be difficult, BUT the thing is its easy to restart (BUT fu(king annoying).

THe needle is 1 turn out, air/fuel mixture is default setting.
Using 10% nitro.

Please help me guys!!!

really?
bummer. i was under the impression 1 turn was what it was ment to set at. That was what the manual told me to get it to.
Oh bummer... i hope i haven't done too much damage to my car.

Lucky i been running 10% nitro and not 15% like i was going to do.

Just wondering, also do u spray WD-40 and run it with some fuel when you go to stop playiing with your car?

Or do u just spray wd-40 and leave it alone?

THanks Sausage_man.
Hopefully my engine ain't destroyed
