You'll need to port the updraft portion of the intake manifold to 13 mm to get the most benefit of that bigger carburetor.

I did that on my 12.7: compression FA-180 and made just under 4 HP with 30% nitro. 8950 RPM with an 18 X 8 prop.

The pump is counter intuitive. Ii's an air bleed. The check valves turn the crankcase into an air compressor and you must bleed off pressure or you will literally blow up the fuel tank. A less dramatic symptom is that he engine will flood when the throttle is brought back to idle. Opening up the needle valve on the pump bleeds off more pressure and leans out the mixture.

Find an online manual for the FA-300 TTDP and it has instructions on how to set-up and adjust the pump. Properly set up, it works flawlessly.

Well, I'll be damned. I figured out the differences in the previous posts where the pictures reverted to thumbnails while some posted at the full sized 640 x 480..

Did it also come with the bleed off valve?

Yes it has the bleed valve and I already have a couple of them here on hand as well/\.

I also have a 120 pumped dual plug that I recently went through.

Good job Dan, now we can all get the (big picture), What did you come up with, if I may ask, Thanks I've tried to make mine smaller but nobody seems to be concerned, so I won't be either. I would like to get rid of that big space in my posts though.

I closely examined the URLs of the posts that were 640 x 480 and the thumbnails.
The full sized (640 x 480) pictures had a ? between jpg and the bracket for the /img (jpg?[/img]) By inserting a ? in the URLs before posting, I cured the problem. Go figure eh?

I have no idea why a very small number of my pix had the ? in the URL. If not for that anomaly, I probably never would have solved the problem.

Furthermore, I have no clue as to why this site differentiates between the URLs with or without the ?. I have not had this issue with any other sites.

I download my pictures to IMGUR (now that photobucket put the screws to everyone) It allows one to select the size of the photo. I use 640 x 480 which is designed for message boards so as to not cover too much of the page.

If you are doing a step by step how-to instruction post with pictures accompanied by text, the thumbnails are usually too small to show pertinent detail. Having to click a thumbnail and open another page to view the full sized picture interrupts the flow of the article.

The format of the post should be up to the author, not picture nannies trying to force their preferences on everyone else.

Non the less, that's your post and you have a right to post small unintelligible pictures if you like.

Why tell me ? I couldn't agree more. Where did you see otherwise?


I was joshing Dave about this:

The same pic was posted earlier. I simply resized it in "Paint" and posted at 10% of the original size.

A quote accompanying the post would clear up who the post is referring to.

A misunderstanding on my part.

It seems odd to me to that Saito recommends being careful to not block the vents and then makes a pressure system that blocks them,

Not blocked. It is just a controlled release
I will be relocating the atmospheric end to a better place.

With the separate intake and exhaust ports, check valve controlled the ventilation can be pretty darn good

The 2.20 ran so much better with the Iron Bay regulator, especially the idle.


There were some complaints that the 2.20 wouldn't idle below 2,600, that was not true.
