so i was looking around on craigslist when i came across a newer revo 3.3 talked to the guy and he said he would take 120 so i want and got it had some problems with the ez start so i went to the pull start
the truck was running but would stall i then replaced the header and put the old exhaust on it and go it running then it died so i cant get it back started and i dont no how tight to put the glow plug and to properly star it
should i re tune it?
Never hurts to start back over and reset the tune. Also check to make sure the fuel system is air tight. Ive learned it doesnt take much of a air leak to cause lean stall problems. The glow plugs should be hand tight. Screw down till it stops then just snug it up. You may want to start with a new glow plug too. When cranking over the engine put your finger over the exhaust pipe till the fuel reaches the carb. Dont do this to long or youll flood it.
"You just got passed by a Traxxas"
also since it is used, try replacing the fuel line, if it sits for a couple years the fuel line can get gummed up so it can make starting it alot eisier
but it seems like if the plug is to tight the pull start is just to hard to pull
so should i got get a new plug and then reset the tune
btw, if you've never had a properly working e-z start then i'd highly recommend it, makes nitro quick and easy when its all working good!
It could be bigger problems, or more simple ones but imo 9 times outta 10 its a plug if the rest of the system is mechanically sound..
good luck, keep us posted
went to the LHS they told me need a new carb and really need to just rebuild the whole truck
before you do that get a secound opinion if you can cuz they might just be trying to get the money out of you, cuz telling you that you need the engine rebuilt versus a new plug means a huge diffence in the money they are bringing into the store
