Default Jett FIRE .50 RNV?

I got my Jett FIRE .50 today. It has the remote needle on the back plate. The header will not bolt on with the needle there. Anyone that has a Whiplash w/JETT FIRE .50, where did you mount your remote needle valve?
Thanks,
Craig

Default RNV

The remote needle valve has two screws, one holds it on, the other acts as a pin. The only one you need concern yourself with is the one that holds it on.

Looking at the back of the engine, cylinder up, my RNV is attached with the upper left crankcase screw. I have rotated the RNV so the needle points up and to the left, about the 10:30 position. The other screw or pin is not used and not necessary. You can rotate the RNV assembly around and secure it with any crankcase screw you want.

The way I attached mine the fuel line was just level with the bottom of the crankcase and should not be a problem for landing.

Receive my Jett 50 a couple of months ago, and finally got to bench run it today. What a awesome engine. Fired up on the first try and really screamed, even running on the rich side. We ran two tanks through it and kept it pretty rich, but you could tell, it just wanted to scream----anyway, I had the same problem with the NV and finding a way to mount it on my DD. My solution was to make a small "Z" bracket and use one of the engine mount bolts to tie the bracket under, then mount the RN on top of the bracket. This keep the needle even with the centerline of the carb. OH---buy the way---buy some spare plugs. I ate two on two tank runs, so I am looking for a little stronger replacement

Default Plugs

I've found KB 1L to work the best.

Thanks for the plug info, I'm going to break mine in this week so I'll give that plug a shot. This is my first Jett, I'm looking forward to seeing what rpms she gives out.
