Default Rx21p5 Engine Tuning/starting Problem

Ok I have had this engine running and its on its 5th tank.. I can't get it started back for some reason.. I have double checked everything and still nothing... Any suggestions on Carb settings and what type of glow plug to use.. i'm using 30% Trinity race blend..


Thanks

have you taken out the glow plug and seen if it is bad? this is a common occurance when breaking in engines. Also make sure your glow igniter is good.if you had it running for 5 tanks I doubt its a tunning problem. Also if you keep on turning it over the engine will get flooded making starting almost impossible.

Go through the deflooding procedure (even if it doesn't seem flooded) and set the all needles to their stock position.
