    sh .28 wont stay running...HELP!!!

    I have a sh .28 motor that wont stay running. I warm the motor up to around 180 and then prime it. It'll start in 2-3 pulls but about 30seconds later she dies. I dont know if it's something with the LSN, if it's too far out or in. But right now everything is at factory settings. After about 20 minutes of messing with it, I gave up for the night. But any help would be great. I'd like to get it broken in this weekend. The weather is supposed to be nice as hell. Thanks, Joe

    RE: sh .28 wont stay running...HELP!!!

    So I couldn't wait until my break at work today so I took her to the basement. I turned the HSN in 3/4 turn and BAM!!! She fired right up and stayed running. With tank 1 out of the way it's now time to work on tanks 2-6. With this engine I'm going to run the heat cycle through it. I did that on my sh .18 and I'm very happy with the results.

    RE: sh .28 wont stay running...HELP!!!

    Both the HSN and LSN were set way too rich. HSN factory set at 3 turns out. Now is sitting at 2 1/4 Not sure what the LSN factory setting was but I turned it in almost 3/4. She fires up on the 1-2 pull everytime and runs super nice. I have one more tank I wanna run though her at half-3/4 throttle and then tune her. I had a friend yesterday BLAST me with his Jato. Not a damn thing wrong with my Hurricane but his Jato was all over the road. Went to the LHS and $81 later, he's back and running again. Hahaha My buggy was at a dead stop too and he was just coming out of second gear. I thought my buggy was going to die. But she pulled away with not even a scratch. Lucky me.
