Re: EME 120 twin problems

Hi Pete. I have to repeat that any carb fault will show up on both cylinders not just one. Stop looking for something that is ruled out by logic. As far as the reeds are concerned, You must hold the block up to a light and any poor seating will show a light coming through. Check that the lift pressu...

Re: EME 120 twin problems

Hi Glenn. Yes I forgot about the old reed fart. I always made sure there was a real good one on my Weslake 342 engines. :D

Re: EME 120 twin problems

Have you checked for any restriction, everything has to be ruled out.

Re: EME 120 twin problems

Just had another thought:-
Increased back pressure [exhaust] levels can cause increased emissions, increased fuel consumption, and can negatively affect engine performance.

Re: EME 120 twin problems

if you can find out why one cylinder is getting more fuel than the other you will have the answer.

Re: EME 120 twin problems

Hi peter. You may well have a carburettor fault but remember this one carb serves both cylinders. You may well have a spark at slow speed a bit behind the other. Their are two ignition systems and very slight differences in coil efficiency, associated components etc can cause this. but still operate...

Re: EME 120 twin problems

Using a process of elimination for a logical fault diagnosis. 1. Ignition system outputs are interchangeable therefore as there is no change after swapping over it rules out ignition fault. 2. Faulty plug, ruled out by fitting new. 3. Good and equal compression on both cylinders precludes them from ...

As the bus stopped and it was her turn to get on, she became aware that her skirt was too tight to allow her leg to come up to the height of the first step of the bus. Slightly embarras...

Ultrafly Outrage 3D

Hi all. This video shows a model which I am in the process of building, which weighs about 13-14 ounces. It first hit the scene many years ago, early 2000's I believe and became an overwhelming success for its aerobatic performance, durability and good indoor performance too. Apparently it can handl...

Re: CAA Operator I.D...what did we pay for

All Mike is asking for is his operators ID so he can put it on his models. I can't remember if it was emailed to us or if it was included in the last magazine. Sorry, it's this s****en age thing again. Perhaps it could be sent him again Rob. Once he has that he can then figure the best way of puttin...

Re: EME 120 twin problems

Remove the reed valve block and check that all reeds are in good condition and are seating perfectly even if they are new.
Also check the cylinder base gasket on the offending cylinder.

It would seem that it is only the Board Index page that does not have the 2020 flyin bookings. Needs updating too.
