Fuji 64cc needle settings.

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I've had this engine for about two years now. It runs smooth but the oil residue on the plane, landing gear and cowling is too much. Could this be due to the engine running a little rich??? Today I've tryed to lean the engine a bit but now I'm having problems with the settings. The manual states to open the high end about 3/4 turns from closed position and 1 3/8 turn for the low end needle, again from the fully closed position. Does this sound right???? I would like to hear from people using the same engine. Thanks Frank.,

Re: Fuji 64cc needle settings.

I've got a Fuji 50. Tells me to set needles same as you. The fuel oil coming out of exhaust is on real.

I cant get mine to transition from idle to wide open throttle, tried needles in all kinds of positions. Thinking I might use it for a boat anchor.

Re: Fuji 64cc needle settings.

Unfortunate thing is they bleed oil. My fugi 64 spit it out pretty god as well. Changed to a good syn at 50:1 and it helped some. Other than being a PITA to clean up, it doesn't hurt a thing.

Ken, get the top end first. Then work on the bottom. They are real touchy on the low settings, and they seem to like it a little rich.
