RE: Electrics and Glow Airplanes

Couldn't have said it better myself. I just bought an old O.S. 1.6 -I'm dying to fire it up. I figure about a 18X10 prop (right?[8D])

RE: nv setting for os 15 max

Well, at least it's acting differently, I guess that's an improvement [:o]. I blew out the spraybar from the throat out and it started. But all is not well. Now it won't stay running. It'll run...

RE: nv setting for os 15 max

RE: nv setting for os 15 max

Well, I just tried it with the 2.5 turns out from closed. Still won't run. This is weird. The engine will actually start and run at a certain rpm, (About that of a slow idle). But while doing so it...

RE: nv setting for os 15 max
