Thumbs up

Got to run the motor in today for almost 2qts. So far so good. Temps stayed around 210 all day. Still needs final tuning. I was running 30% O'Donnell with #5 Nova plug.

Hey bro, with these kind of weather, 210 is still a bit on the high side!

I understand what you're saying. It would be hot if the outside temp was 20 degrees hotter with the same carb settings. But we all know to tune differently to weather conditions as in this case. Maybe I'm missing something. 210 is still 210 right? No matter what the outside temp is or what we are used to? I just wanted to make sure the motor got up to temps to heat cycle the motor. Of course when the weather gets warmer, this carb setting would cause it to run hot. Maybe I should give it to Data so I don't screw things up. Hehe. See ya man.

we are still working on it but it is a frusturating experience. Its not the motor it is the supplier and this damned taiwanese trading company that has their hand in the works.
