Here is another issue I have found. I took the Evolution .46NX off a Porter. The engine was mounted inverted on this plane. I put the engine on a 4*40 and fired it up. I had to lean it out 12 clicks on the needle valve to make it run similar to how it ran on the Porter.

Both these planes were ARFs and the centre line of the tank was within normal limits of the cetre line of the carb.

Anyone else notice these significant changes when turning an engine to different orientations?

Re: Engine Orientation

I have the EVO 46 mounted inverted in the Harvard II and the carb settings are close to normal now I have the tank height correct.

12 clicks must have meant you had to alter the stop collar position.
I know there's money in aviation........I put it there!
