Sam and Nigel - thank you for providing o-rings, plugs and some good advice for my red dot! I ended up using it in my main at cap. classic after my other motor stopped running at 400 degrees for some reason...
Nice meeting you both!
George

You'll definately like it. The reason for the leak was from us over tightening the collar on the carb. Changed it and all is well.
Nice to meet you and your brother and I'm glad you liked the JL's

Add a .1mm shim if using 30% Tornado fuel.

Guess I better add a shim to mine. Will that take away some performance on the engine?

Default Adding shim

Adding a shim to the motor really should not effect performance much. You may lose just a squeek at the low end, but you won't detonate(pre-ignition) the motor on the top end. You will actually gain top end with a properly shimmed motor. I run 30% Tornado and needed to add a .1mm shim. If your getting a sandblasted or pitted head button and/or piston ....your motor is detonating. This is very bad and puts a huge stress on the piston, wrist pin, connecting rod and crankpin. Adding a head shim will generally stop detonation. Another thing to consider is that detonation is much more prevalent on tracks where the motor is much higher in the rev range. Long straight aways( 180 to 230 feet) Here is where detonation can be a problem. If your using a Mega #7 cold plug(picco plug). I would probably add a shim.

Default JL POWER

I just want to say I ran the JL at the Capital Classic, and let me tell you I will only run JL Red Dots. The motor is sick in the infield.

Put 5 tanks through mine so far with break-in settings and am very impressed so far! No leaks either! Couple of more tanks should do it.......
Curious, what are you guys using for starter boxes? My mill is in a CRT .5 and I bought the Ofna Mini starter box which is having a tough time turning over the engine. Tried heating the head with a heat gun and that still didn't work. Even removed the glow plug to see if my box would turn it and that didn't do it either......HELP!

Make sure the rubber wheel is lined up exactly with the flywheel of the engine.

Samuel to the rescue again! This is the second time you have helped me! Many Thanks as this was the problem......It wasn't off by alot (maybe 1/16") but enough to cause the rubber wheel to slip on the flywheel. I thought the motor in the starter was stalling! Beginner mistake, by a Beginner. My apologies to everyone for taking up space in this thread!!!
