The Evo3 is the same also,
Change the carby over today from the Mega Zx.12 and all seems fine, got it running and starts well, now to tune it properly on Sunday at Moorebank, so it seems it might have been a problem with the orginal carb, will try it on the mega just to make sure, if it is i'm one carb down now

Look right into the gap. You see the cooling head is sitting in the sleeve. That's what really need to be cooled. Well, that and the head button, it's "inside" the cooling head.
So, that is the way it should be. Remember to tighten(SP?) the screws a minute at a time on each one, going in a cross pattern from one to the other. Did I explain it good?

Ok, went to break in my Offroad Red Dot .12 and it was running 160F - 180F. Thought I would try leaning out the HSN and i couldn't get it to move. I did take off that part to move the nipple around so it wasn't hitting the air filter. Are the really, really tight from the factory?

Yeah the HSN is tight from the factory. I have two and it's the same.

Put a drop of oil at the HSN, that will lube the o-ring and loosen up the HSN on it's housing.

Default JL3 Collet

Seasons greetings and Merry Xmas to all.

Can the guys running the JL3 in NT1 tell me if the collet that comes with the engines works on the NT1 or would I have to get the Picco collet from Xray?

Thanks

Hi

I was under the impression that the JLR Collet would need to be shorten'd to work on the NT1?
