Default thanks

Thanks JLock and EcZahst1. Would it be smart to always heat the engine up before you start it? Or after break-in would it matter anymore? Thanks

I did not preheat mine and it fired up right away. But, it all depends on what you feel comfortable with. But just remember, don't start pushing the engine hard until around tank #7 and even then, not too hard until after that tank.

I used the hair dryer for the first and second tanks, then it started without it after that. If your able to start it without right off the bat, thats great, mine would'nt budge...!Starter wheel just sat there and smoked...!

Mine was VERY tight.......just loosened the plug off a fraction and it turned over without too much hassle. Just remember to tighten the plug back up when its idling
Cheers

Carburetor

Does anyone know what to do with the carb popping off? Iíve replaced 2 Teflon sleeves already but canít seem to find the fix. When I replaced the sleeved and tightened the nut too much it cracks it but when not tight enough the carb is loose. Any suggestions before sending it to Hobby Services? Thanks

Add abit of sealant compound such as automotive silicon.

i've also tried with a smear of grease around the carb body with good results as i had no sealant lying around

Dont think they will or should. I mean, they hit the jackpot with the OS TZ. $190 engine with a rebuild under $80. Just remember that youll need to gear up your car, OS Engines as well as Rossi engines are known for their amazing torque.

OS does not have plans on releasing any new .12 engines.

Don't ask how but I lost the metering needle assembly (#21538500) for my TZ12 T5
LHS has no stock as apparently I'm the only fool in town who lost it
I will have to wait for the next order date which could be months away.
Any idea where I might be able to pick one up? Somewhere with ready stock and will ship internationally.

There are different OS.12TZ modified motors on the market that are new that you might want to try.
