RE: Super tiger .61?

Just the sign of a good tight ABC engine. It'll get much smoother with age as the parts set in. You'll probably find it starts easier once its hot from a run and the parts have expanded a bit.

RE: OS 46 starting problem

You'll probably have to adjust the low end with the pitts muffler, then go back and redo the high end. Put a new glow plug in it, even if the old one still glows orange. Replace all fuel lines even...
