I’m having trouble getting my 210 to transition smoothly. At all in fact.
It starts okay, but usually backwards. When it IS running, the right way,
it’ll often stop. If it runs, the right way, and keeps running, it’ll die
when I open the throttle.
This engine is not run in, only had about 15 minutes total. MT contest 10
fuel. Menz 20×10 prop. A5 plug. Wide bore fuel tube.
The onloy thing I can think of is the distance between the fuel nipple and
the centre of the tank, but that’s only about 3/4″. I know that’s more than
recommended, but I’d be surprised if that was it.
Any one experienced in the ways of Moki got any blinding ideas???
