I uploaded the Enya Ultra 11CXDs instructions that came with my engine here.

I have run my AAC version on bench in between flying some other stuff at the field. With an APC 9x4 and the super-quiet muffler from Enya (in order to keep a few friends at the field) I got about 3500-9800rpm. Pick up was very nice from idle and it runs very smooth, impressed a few of the older folks who have not seen the more modern diesels before. In fact any type of diesels are really rare at our field.

I find it a little annoying to need an Allen key just to fiddle with with the compression, will try to replace it with a regular cross bar.
Main needle ended up near 1 turn open and it doesn't use much fuel.

Mr Cox

Your findings mirror my expeience.

I was able to get a lower idle on mine ... around 2600 rpm ... but for reliability, a higher would be a wise decision.

A friend made a traditional tommy bar for me from a humble (now headless) metric socket head machine screw and a length of piano wire. I have not filed and sanded it with particular care so it looks a little "rough", but it works very well. There is also a home made lock lever for it, though the tommy bar shows no sign of wanting to "wander" while running.
