Re: Another Annual completed

I believe that must have been before I had the prop overhauled last year,it was definitely vibrating .We just put a new spinner this Annual as well.It has not been vibrating at all since the prop was done last year.

Re: CLEANING FUEL INJECTORS - HELP AND ADVISE

Patience is the game from what I have learnt.Soak them in Hoppes 9 cleaner for at least 48 hours.I started with ultrasonic cleaning but because we had to wait for engine mounts,I decided to soak them in Hoppes 9 cleaner.Having a solenoid is not easy so just pray it works without cycling them. Our in...

Re: WANTED FUEL INJECTOR FOR LIBERTY

Have you tried cleaning the one you want to replace.I would be interested in buying the one you no longer need.If you dont mind me asking,which cylinder is it from.My number 2 seem to run leaner.

Re: Injector

Just to digress a bit.My number 3 EGT graph has been running a bar below the rest at cruise,however at full throttle it matches up with the rest,could this be an injector causing it.We have swapped spark plugs with number 1 both top and bottom but no change which rules out a plug.

I believe its better to do a clean install of xp on a partition then you select the operating system as soon as your laptop boots....
