    Remote needle valve with a servo

    I'd like to add a 3rd servo and install an arm on the high speed needle valve to adjust mixture while running.

    anyone here done that?

    i don't know the best way to add the arm, nor where to mount the servo and link it to the arm.

    or perhaps i should leave the current needle valve set wide open and add a 3rd party needle valve with a servo attachment a couple inches up the fuel line.

    any thoughts? pictures? suggestions?

    You would have to buy a 3 channel radio with that servo, and those can get kind of expensive. I don't know that it would be worth it. Has it been done before?

    got a 3 channel radio

    I have a 3 channel radio. the 3rd channel is specifically for a remote mixture setting (or a brake on a car, apparently. there was that one time my boat could have used a brake... but i digress)

    i just seem to always want to be bringing it in to tune it a bit. i mean, it runs quite well at 2 3/4 turns out on 10% fuel, but i know it's got a little more in it. tweek, tweek, tweek.... a remote would seem so much more accurate!

    I really don't know how you would do it but might want to try to go to one of the car forums on this board, they might know. Maybe the t-maxx board, cuz that board is extremely active.

    Fourmost and Perry both make servo operated remote mixture control valves for airplanes--I don't see why they wouldn't work on a boat.
