Quietnas: I mean the blue plate at the bottom of the jato. See how my gas tank is not lining up with plate. I think it is bent. I was thinking of changing plate and I read on a forum somewhere that if you set it up just right all you have to do is turn jato upside down and you can get all the components to stay more or less in place while you simply unscrew and remove old plate for replacement with new one.

Well it was a lot of fun in the snow with the paddle tires, no more snow till next Monday so time to switch tires....
I do have a small problem for some odd reason my electric start will NOT ignite the glow plug it does turn the motor, when I try to start it with the wire connected to the glow plug the light on the handheld will not light up (glow plug) however I use a regular glow plug igniter and the car will start w/o a problem.
I did a continuity test on the blue wire and its good i checked all the connections and the ground and they are all good.

any ideas on what can it be?

You wont be disapointed with Maxy's fuel. I have a .21 in the Jato. In the Savage i beleive it's a .26 not sure. As far as the pinch in the engine goes it is perfectly normal for the engine to turn easy when it is hot. When it is cold it should be nice and tight. If the pinch were not tight when cold you would lose compression wh it warmed up and would probably stop running after about 8 or 9 minutes.
