Default Engine Question!

Well i have a G-62 here that seems had a smoke system attached to it at some time. The crankcase has been tapped and a connectior for pressure line i would imagine for the pump to work. Is there anyway of plugging that up since i do not want to use a smoke system?

A short piece of fuel line with a bolt in the end of the hose. Not pretty but it works fine.

The crankcase doesnt put out enough pressure to shoot the bolt out ?

Take the fitting out and screw a bolt of the same size in the hole. You may want to put some red atv silicone around threads before you put it in.


Thanks

If the case is tapped just under the exhaust the thread is most likely a 1/4-28...You can get a SHORT bolt at the hardware store, use the washer from a glow plug, and stop up the hole...[8D]
Pressure in the crankcase is no more than 5 or 6 lbs, and is intermittent...Not nearly enough to dislodge anything....

Since TKG makes ignitions, and RCIGN makes or modifies the whole darn engine if needed, their advice always works out just fine.

Awsome . Thanks for the help guys. I found a bolt at the store to fit it and it's secured and works. Ran it on the bench.
