try this get one of those engine sprays from orion, start the motor and spray it where the carby is attached (neck) if it stalls or changes the rev the seals may be broken or the carby is not mounted properly. Try taking the carby off the crank case and re-intall secure it properly with your thumb and tighten the nut, you might as well change the o-ring on the neck to make sure.

Default dyno chart

Hi guys,

I am currently using the TR(P)-T 5-port.
I would like to know if any of you have the dyno chart/graph.
I saw the review in one of the magazines recently and I am quite sure that there's a dyno chart for this engine.

Would be interesting to have the dyno chart to help on gearing calculations.

If any of you have one for this engine, can you please post it here?

Cheers.

So today I went to break in my new OS TR 5p Turbo plant. Using O'Donnel 20% race fuel and the OS recommended needle settings per the little booklet, and all I got was a hellishly flooded motor.

You guys have any specific recommendations for breaking in these plants? (I stripped a pulley in my starter box so I have a few days to reaserch till I get the replacement in)

I am also getting an OS 7 plug in since in my experience a Medium plug is better for breaking in.

Theres like 530 posts in this thread, and the forum software's search logic is ass, so its a PITA to search back and see any specific post with a break-in run down.
