Default RE: Hydrolock Help!

Hydrolock happens anytime you fill your combustion chamber with a liquid. Since it is not compressable the piston can't go any further. Remove the glow plug and turn the car upside down. Turn the engine over a few times and you should cealr the cylinder. Put the plug back in and you should be okay.

To keep it from happening again, don't use so much ARO or don't tune your carb so rich. That's generally when it will happen. If you cansisnently get hydrolocked at start up you are most likely over priming and "may" be set to rich.
