Default OS 1.08 davis diesel conversion 18x8

Just ran my OS 1.08 diesel conversion (Davis) not even fully broken on and turns a ZOAR 18 x8 at 6500 what caught my eye was the number on a G-26 16 x8 7000

I expect it will hit 6800 no problem went from 5800 to 6100 to 6300 and finally 6500 with only about 15 minutes on it that is a pretty serious number for a 1.08 OS martin

Pe at the time I only had a 15 x8 and ran just to check out the the engine, battery went dead on the tach so could not get a read I think that is the recommended prop for glow , got the engine "bare" used no box no info sheet , the conversion seems right up there with a a gasser SPE 26cc gas review AJ Coholic 6960 wood zinger idle 2000 mine idle 1350
it needs a little more time most likely will pick up an other 400 with a little time on it martin

What type of application could you use this in? I am getting more and more curious about diesel. Thanks!
