Problems with my Hanno 60

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hello everyone: This morning I tested the pump which works, and cleaned the carb. I tried running the engine, but again was unable to get the RPM's past 50% so I am now pretty convinced I have a problem with the piston-sleeve. Any ideas as to who might be able to rebuild this engine or at least sell me a piston-sleeve combo? It is a "Hanno" OS 60 rear exhaust with pump. Thank you very much.

You don't have a sleeve or piston problem, you have a carb problem. Get a can of carb cleaner and pull the main needle out and spray the main out real good. Put the needle in and set it and go fly.

I agree with Imhoff43...Sorry Ed, but unless a quick inspection in the exhaust port reveals damage to the piston and/or cylinder, and a compression test says piston/cyl. problems then, I would have to say carburator. I would say you are not getting the exact jetting combo between your high and low needle so the transition between the two are smooth. On top of that, secretly knowing you have a pipe on that engine, you are going to have to do your jetting when the engine is (what we refer to in snowmobiling as) running on the pipe. Meaning in short, when the pipe and engine are hot and at running temp. On top of all this ...check for airleaks, worn O-rings on the needles etc.
Good luck!!!
