Default RE: Checking timing on a Saito 80

fired it up and flew it today, seemed ok although the needle valve is much further out than it used to be.
Main reason for changing bearings was the engine seemed down on power dont know if that has changed so maybe problem is elsewhere.

Anyway after the third flight it stopped on approach and when I turned the prop it had very little compression, so it will have to come out again and investigate.
