Default 2nd v-7

So far my 2nd new v-7 is working perfect I have only run 2 qts. of norvel 25% and I am so happy to just start and fly. Now my wife wants to learn and she will tomm. I have 4 washers and I am running it rich at half throttle it lifts off. Now I just need to become a good pilot but that will come now that it keeps running .. Mark I did pick up 2 gas cars used for the boys and man do they cook.. Any way hope you and tony are haveing good luck with your LMH... Alan

Hi Alan, glad things are still ok with your V-7 (but I am also envious too). My old V-6 is still working fine in my LMH (it's even stopped cutting-out since a friend in Belgium sent me a tube of blue Loctite!). I'm staying with the V-6 for the time being - but I have picked-up an "alternative" engine to tinker with over the coming Winter months

Alan, that's the kind of news I like to hear.

Hey Alan my engine is running great too. I've even been pushing the heli to its limits and running the engine somewhat lean. No warbles or cutouts at all and starts immediately. I ran out of 25% norvel and am now running 15% wildcat with no noticeable change in performance. I think this engine problem is history.
