RE: Walbro for DLE20

Truckracer,

Please note I did say "and a couple of others". I should have used the word "few". I don't have time to sit around thinking of all the names of people that know what they are...

RE: Walbro for DLE20

Therein lies the problem. Far too many seem to believe that those that develop engines and other products "owe" them help and assistance, and an expansion of their knowledge base. Worse, they...

RE: DLE-20 fried a piston...

It's called typos, get over it.

As I said, there's only one reason to cook off an engine and that reason is the way the owner ran it. No if, ands, or buts. If anyone wants to challenge that...

RE: DLE-20 fried a piston...

RE: Disappointed in RC Advancement Over Last 20 Years

For those bemoaning the lack of RC advancement over the last 2o years, I think they need to look beyond a low priced radio, or if they choose to focus there, admit the real problem is obtaining what...

RE: DLE 20 wont idle

I said what I said to diffuse the situation at the request of a respected peer. There will be no more.

RE: PROBLEMS WITH DLE 20CC AND OTHER SMALL GAS ENGINES??

Is the inlet the same diameter as what is found on the DLE 20 carb or of a different size? How many poor idling engines has this solution resolved? This may be something particular to the smaller...

RE: Carb Dripping Gas at Idle

Curious, was the fork engaged with button on the diaphragm when it was leaking or was the button sitting on top of the fork?

The height gauge is a useful tool for those that obtain one. Good to...

RE: DLE 20 wont idle
