Default Saito 1.00 on Diesel

Just playing around today I ran my Saito 1.00 GK on Davis ABC mix. It required no glow plug assist to start, it just simply fired right up. I must need my glasses changed, I thought I had placed a MasterAirscrew Classic 16x8 on it but on removing it, it turned out to be an 18x6.

Engine rpm at full throttle===6,650, full song in picture.

John, with the big 18x6 it will idle at 1,000 rpm, its smoother at 1,200, at 1,000 rpm it seems to cool down and gets shaky. I am going to try a Mejzlik 16x8 tomorrow.

Patch, I may try to video tomorrow also. Sundays are busy with Church and then we're practicing for a spring musical about the crucifiction.
