Can't start my OS Hyper Z 0.55, any suggestions where to start? Fuel looks like it is getting in and I changed the filter, fuel and all lines and the glow plug. Nothing. Last year she ran perfectly.

How is your glow plug battery for power?

Re: Can't start my OS Hyper Z 0.55

Is the engine side mount or inverted? All 2S engines require to be primed with a little fuel especially the first start of the day. I drill a hole in the air duct just above the carb. I use a squirt bottle with a short piece of fuel line on it and a piece of brass tube stuck on the end. That way the hole does not have to be very large. Prime it and spin it over a few times without the glow plug heat on. put the glow plug heat on if it does not start right away, do the procedure twice.
