Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Darren check your plug cap. Make sure it's tight on the plug. I've seen where they got loose and cause RF interference. Doesn't sound like your set-up is bad. Make sure all connections are nice and tight.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Make sure you do not have any metal to metal contact that is loose. Many guys coming over from glow have old habits to break like using metal links or z bend pushrods into the throttle arms. HD ball links are best in most applications.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Not only with that be sending out all kinds of rf interference but will also wear a hole in your throttle arm big enough to stick your head through before you know it.

Lots of good experience up in Ft.McMurray (Doug).

When you have a glitch/glitter. Ruling out a potential issue. Never assume "that was it". Be prepared for it to still be there, being caused by possibly another source as well.

Hope this helps
