I've just got one of these engines but I'm having trouble getting the flywheel nut to crank down, the crankshaft is turning along with the nut and its still slack enough that the flywheel will turn independently when the piston is at the top of the sleeve.

Any tips?

Are you using the collet that came with the engine? and what flywheel are you using? and make sure the nut have full threads all the way to the end.

I've managed to get it on now but ended up using a different collet.

Thanks

Perhaps a set of Murnan ceramics would show a more noticeable improvement - but I don't think he makes a set for the Red Dot.

Within what temp range does the Red Dot like to run? Does it like a rich bottom end setting?

Not too rich where it struggles to accelerate. just rich enough for it to puff a good amount of smoke when you accelerate from a dead stop.
