Default RE: .o49 engines by cox

Nice job, but I think there is an inherent problem with a carburator on a reed engine?
The reed only closes due to a higher pressure in the crank and that''s fine at full throttle but near idle the restriction of the carburator gives an underpressure. This would be ok if it stayed constant but as the reed is shut (do to a higher pressure in the crank) the throttle is still "leaking" and the pressure will continue to rise on the wrong side of the reed... [:'(]

I think the TeeDee would be much better suited for a carburator, please feel free to prove me wrong.
