    Nelson s/s set up

    Hi
    Can anyone tell me what is a good starting point set up, for a Nelson S/S with NO internal mini pipe in the muffler.
    Head clearance, deck height, prop. Believe this set up was/is run in Canada.

    Thanks Geoff

    RE: Nelson s/s set up

    If that's a quickie engine ur talking about, then Ray gave you Q40 numbers!??

    189 to 192 liner height.. Total clearance at TDC, try .010 to .013.. something like that.. I would try 190 and .010 to start.

    Maybe Randy Smith will jump in here, he runs the Canadian set up...

    RE: Nelson s/s set up

    Hi
    Yes the numbers did seem abit high My normal Q500 settings are 192/14-16 flying at or close to sea level with 10%nitro fuel.
    As the Nelson has no mini pipe in the new set up, I was wondering if the linner should be dropped right down as there is no longer any scavege or boost from the muffler.
