    Yeah, as you rotate the crankshaft 720 degrees (2 revolutions) , the intake valve has to open as well as the exhaust valve. If either valve is not...

    Maybe I had been doing it wrong, but the remote glowplug connection I tried in the past kept falling off the glowplug.

    Yep, that's the Enya you are thinking about. You basically need a remote glowplug connection or a very short glowstarter.

    Yabut, then you would have trouble accessing the glowplug for starting. You would have to use a remote glowplug connection.

    Is your Enya 4-stroke ringed or ABC type? I LOVE my Saitos and OS 4-stroke 70 Surpass II. They can't do wrong. No experience with Enya or YS, yet.

    Out of desperation, I have hacked up servo arms to use as throttle arms, worked fine too.
