    They don't have to run hot, but most people use crappy fuel in them or they just don't know what they're doing in the first place.

    Heating is good no matter what because it loosens the engine and ultimately extends it's life.

    The piston looks pretty good, but has probably been run a bit lean from time to time.

    It depends on humidity and fuel too, not just temperature.

    I can say this though, if your well tuned engine runs 240-250 on a 80 day, a well tuned engine should run about 210-220 on a 60...

    Did you replace the o-rings because this problem was happening? I'll bet you have a broken carb or it's not fully seated into the engine.

    The 2.5 is pretty reliable, but the 3.3 can also be very reliable, it's just easier to break the conrod on a 3.3.

    I would start by looking for any fuel leaks, they're easy to spot. If that checks out, try richening the high speed needle by at least 1/2 a turn.

    Not true at all. Running lean allows the spent gases to bake onto the piston, as opposed to being flushed away by a proper or slightly rich tune. You are right about the plug coil.

    I've seen a 3.3 crank break like that, it's from running too lean. NN is right about the design and everything, but in millions of cranks there's bound to be some weak ones.
