If you've run several tanks through it to break the engine in, wear particles from breaking in (or swarf) will cook the plug. Try a new plug. If the problem still exists, the low speed is still...

ABL stands for "Advanced Bi-metallic Liner". Bi-metallic means 2 metals. It sure seems pretty telling to me. What's next? ABL "type"? LoL.

Its anyone's guess since it is basically trade secret. Whether it's single step or double step, it's still problematic. The AX and LA engines peel in the same manner that the SF and FX engines did.

They have used the same process since the SF series that they do now with the AX and LA series. They just call it "ABL" now. Same old sales/marketing crap.

Overpriced Shat.

Are you launching it 1,000rpm rich of peak? These engines will not tolerate the sport engine mantra of "slightly rich".

You have to get the fuel or acetone in the right places. Heating before adding solvent helps and can make a lot of difference. Not rocket science. Been doing this to airplane engines for years.
