I don't know who advised you about it, but the JL .12 comes with the 6mm collet as standard.

hi everyone, i ran my jl3 engine first time on turkish nats. our Amains are 1hour long, and i was using the skyline pipe. i ran it with stock gasket out of the box, but manifold seemed a little big for that. after 15mins in final, my manifolt's holes ripped, and exhaust came off. is that happened because i didnt use the thicker gasket came with the engine?

one more question: how can i make new holes for the manifolt?

sorry for bad english, thanks for the replies.

The thicker exhaust Gasket (51997) needs to be installed if using a Skyline pipe set or any Novarossi based pipe set on the JL engine, your holes on the manifold ripped thru prematurely due to it being loose and the actually the mounting spring vibrates thru it causing the holes to elongate and rip through, however you can drill new holes in the mounting flange using a really small drill bit (.60mm drill bit)

Start from 4 turns out on the HSN and 3 turns out on the LSN, this is just a base settings as your fuel will affect the final setting for you carburetor.

There is no such thing as a base setting. One should NEVER turn the needle all the way in, in order to count the turns out. The needle is made of hard steel, while the seat is soft brass. Turning needle in all the way can damage the seat. Needle settings vary so much from effects of atmospheric changes, fuel brands, glow plugs, etc. That one persons settings cannot be accurate for another anyway. Just fire it up and make it too rich... lean out 1/8 of a turn at a time, making high speed passes, till it clears out and makes good power.

I've never had to use base settings on carb needles.... even when the engine is brand new. 99.9% of the time the factory sets the needles to a slightly rich condition right from the start. I don't like turning needles all the way into the carb because it causes undue shear stress on the o-ring needle seals. Even with a brand new engine...if it starts you're in the ball park of tuning. I see so many people start making pretty big adjustments to carb needles if an engine doesn't start.
