    She sure did, I think she had outside help choosing the OS .56, it's much appreciated. That mess we were in is almost over. Gift engines are always special and every one is a keeper.

    Somebody obviously disassembled that engine at some point, they are set so tight from the factory that they bend/flex the Allen wrench and make a loud cracking sound when they break loose.

    HS, I use three blade props a lot, I like them. I started using them on Diesel conversions as that's the easiest way to add 50% to the normal load.

    Rocket, I run a 12x6 three blade on my Saito .62, it turns about 9,100. The .91 should turn the 13x6 at about that. I'm not bragging Saito here just trying to help you find some perspective.

    If I may make a suggestion, lose the pump until you get the engine broken in and the carb set up. The 3000 is a fine engine as is it's own carb.
