Default 160sx

Hi,
I bought a used 160sx with less than 11 hours.
The turbine spin freely and works great.
One issue is that the turbine dripping fuel during the startup phase from the back of it, between the can to the exhaust cone.
It does not look normal to me.

Any ideas?

A bit more info will be nice, are you seen flames when the engine is in the start up sequence? If you see flames it may be an indication that it is getting more Kero than needed during start up. Have you check the fuel drip for Uaccelr1.

Thanks Carlos, I will check it.
On the first start, the turbine shows some flames, but all other starts went fine.

I will dial the pump down a bit, I hope it will help.

Some guys don't bother to adjust the pump after they are broken in ( around 2-3 hours of use) they come set from factory to 2.0 v, you may find that it needs to be readjusted from something like 2.75 v to 1.75 v or so, depends on the drip, also make sure the filter

let us know of your findings.

Tks.
