I just ordered two more qts of 25% (Maybe I should have also gotten some 15 or 20...). I'm gonna wait for it to finish the break in. I'll fool with head gaskets, nitro content and stuff after I get a good base line run on my fan. Much thanks guys, standby. It will be a week or two probably...

You know it's a shame burning all of this fuel on the test stand. It would be nice to put it in something to run it in the air. Anyone have an .090 sized airplane they would like to sell LOL.

Okay guys,
I think this task is done, at least with the .090. I noticed that with the 6x3 prop and one head gasket the NV is not all that sensitive, seems like a turn plus or minus around the optimum setting doesn't really make much difference. I did notice that running the engine at night you can observe how bright the glow plug is that makes setting the needle easier. The down side is that my tachometer won't work since it's so dark, so I don't know how fast it was running. But I am burning an entire tank without any sagging and it's running pretty strong. Time to move on with this project. Please give me your comments though!
Much Thanks
Rick
