Well I'm very frustrated at my 3.3 because it is supposed to be new and in and out it looks new but I put it in and started it and I can't keep it running, the only way to get it to run is prime it until if fires but after it fires you have to like half prime it by that I mean you can't block all the exhaust but like just enough to like keep it primed but I've changed the gas tank twice and the exhaust and fuel lines along with the glow plug and the carb settings are fine I have no clue now!!!!!!!
Is the engine new out of the box, or just "said" to be new?
Yeah that's how I feel!!!
I have the box but It came off eBay, and I did not take the clear plastic off it and I didn't get a manual??? But the weird part was when I took it apart like all the way if look and seemed clean and I didn't find anything like oil or something like that?????
So it was said to be new, I might have gotten ripped off lol but the engine was bit over priced
Try resetting the carb back so factory setting, and go from there. Some things just are not right, even new. Good luck!
Sounds like you got scammed and sent a worn out engine...its pretty easy to take it apart and clean all the parts to make it look brand new.
"I like rc cars"....."WHAT? YOU'RE KIDDING!"
Yeah it sucks
And thanks for helping me wolf and upbasher
It still could be new and your just experiencing break in pains. Have you broke a engine in before?
Yeah I have, many times before
Check your pinch, if the pinch is good, go back to factory settings, pre-heat the block with a hair dryer when you go to start it...
Oh, and try using a glow ignitor instead of the blue wire and see if it fires up then, this bypasses the possibility of an electrical problem....
All Lives Matter
did u break in the engine yet
No I tryed messing with it more and still nothing, well this winter ill keep messing with it and let you guys know what I did to it
Thanks for the help
Have u checked the simple things like making sure your fuel tank has a good seal?
