Just replaced the PAW carby on my 1.49 with an Enya .09 carby. The engine idles real well all day and snaps to attention when called upon. I love this engine better than my .19.

Os fs a 56

I ran my OS 56 four stroke engine on a diesel mix. I used glow to start and it ran well. All I have to do is increase my compression a bit.

I tried a mix of 33-33-33 and I find that with 33% ether, my PAW is anemic. I am going to change it to 33 Castor, 30 ether and 36 kero.
