Hey guys I just got this new 3.3 broke in and took it out to the skate park here in town. My daughter recorded it so might be a bit shaky.
My question is-"Is it just me or is My idle a pinch to high?"
Here is the Vid-http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmwFP4nxZSw&feature
Sounds ok to me as far as I can tell.
One shot.....One kill, no exceptions
yes, its a bit too high. I am guessing the low side is too lean....have you pinch tested to stall the engine?
One of the hardcore nitro guys should chime in soon - stay tuned
yeah did the pinch test and was about 3 to 4 secs and it would die
Sounds high to me.
FASTEST "recorded/proven" JATO'S-3.3 AND Big block
if you let it sit for a 8-10 seconds, will the idle go down? are you using the servo to adjust the throttle or is there play in the throttle linkage?
Idle too high.
Idle gap too big and/or tuned too lean.
You can’t rely on the pinch test; it will only get you in the ballpark. You should also do the pinch test immediately after a high speed run.
You should have slight gap for throttle linkage.
No slipper/tall gearing/power = broken parts.
Thanks for the advice.
I put a hair width gap in the throttle linkage. I will get it up and running tomorrow and get some high speed passes thru it and do a couple pinch tests.
sounded a lil high but all engines are differnt fating it up a lil bit maybe just a thought as long as its where u want it an u dont over heat how u have it should be fine
