Default Saito 100T RPM's



I'm reading about 8550 rpm on my 100T using a 14-6 MAS wood and 15/18 Wildcat fuel. Can anyone tell me if these readings arereasonable for this prop fuel combo?

That seems about right. Twins make less power than singles, but it seems pretty strong.

If I remember correctly, my 100T turned approx 9,800 with a APC 14-6 on WC 20/20 with OS F plugs.

Wow that seems really fast! After I ran my motor I took if off the stand and decided to check the valve clearance and found that there wasn't any.Couldn't get a feeler gauge in at all. I guess I should have checked it BEFORE I ran it! Anyway I set the clearance to about .003. I'm hoping to get a little higher RPM.

Just got the 100T off of the test stand after adjustingthe valve lash to .003. With 10/18 fuel and a 14X6 MAS wood I'm getting a peak tach reading of 9000 or just a titch over. I can live with that number better than the 8500 I was getting before.
