Thank you very much!
The sound on the video is off, compared to the actual sound which is waaaayyy more sweeter. hahaha. It sounds like a song that i will listen over and over again. hahaha, sorry i'm just happy with it. Thank you, Jesse, for selling it to me. i love the balloon popping sound at low idle.

I have one question, but i will have to make a video i think for you to understand to see if i have a problem or what, so when is running, the right head burnt fuel is coming out of the valve housing tru the top screw, I took the valve cover off and inspect and everything looked fine and tight to me, but i have fuel coming out of there and not the other head and i don't even know what it could be.

Any idea of what it could be, opinions are really appreciated.

What did you do with the vent line? Is it free and clear, totally unobructed?

Rafael, with the engine at full throttle you should see the burnt fuel pulsing through the vent tube on its way out. A drop exiting the tube every couple of seconds is good. If the burnt fuel is leaking from the rocker cover it could be that the rocker cover gasket is out of position or has a void in it somewhere. Could also be that the screws weren't tightened quite enough or that one of the screws is bent near the head. There are no gaskets for the screws, it has to seal with metal to metal contact. All that said, the rocker cover screws may not seal up completely without using a touch of silicone sealant under the screw heads. I have never used sealant there and just live with a tiny bit of leakage. Honestly, the front bearings typically leak more than any other location on 4 strokes do to the positive crankcase pressure. Even though the pressure is very slight on a well run in engine it can be higher on newer engines until the piston ring forms a good seal.

The 100 twin has a check valve controlled, cam driven diaphragm pump. It can develop a good head of pressure if there is a blocked outlet. Under normal conditions, there should be very little leakage at the covers.

Pressure to where? Never owned pumped engine, I assumed the pump pressure went to the fuel tank and the engine was normally vented. No?

Not to tank.Not recalling the routing right now. I don't actually recall if the pressure or intake side went to case. Without venting I suspect blowby on an engine not yet broken in could be considerable as well.

Update,It is in fact pressure fed to case.

Ooooh I see, it's not a boxer style engine. With both pistons traveling in the same direction it sure enough would not develop enough case pressure to evacuate excess burnt fuel/oil from the case. The pump solves that. Very interesting, thanks.

Turned and felt nothing from the nipple and the arrow on the top is p[ointing at the screw where the burnt nitro is coming out.

Could it be the pump is dry and needs primed to start working? That happens with some 2 stroke gasser carbs when they're left dry all winter.

EDIT: Nevermind, I forgot it's an air pump.

Maybe one of the pump valves is stuck open or you may have to spin the engine with a starter to feel any pressure out of the vent.

I wouldn't run it much if you are not getting oil out of the front vent, you do not want to destroy that front bearing and cam. and I am wondering if you are getting more oil in the rocker cover because the oil is not getting to the front, here are a couple things to try,

try removing the nipple to see if something is blocking the vent hole on the inside of the case,

another thing, you can try priming (with oil) the front of the case thew the vent hole

edit, with all this twin talk I had to get my 100 Twin out and put it on the desk by my monitor

guys, I think I have decided on a name for my VQ P-40, "Bad Joe", as in G.I. Joe. I was thinking of adding "With a Gun", but I'm not sure on that, it seams a bit too long, so at least it's Bad Joe for sure.

what you think ??
