I just wanted to pipe in to say there must be considerable tolerances on the part of OS's manufacturing stds. I don't have a lab with elaborate equipment to take measurements or anything like that, but,.....I had an OS 50 SXH that wouldn't run correctly for anything, regardless of the needle settings/mixture control settings, power curve on the radio or whatever I tried to get the engine to run without going lean or getting too rich on the low end. I even tried someone else's recommendation of replacing the OS carb with a Super Tigre carb for the .60-.90. I had much frustration with that set up. I just received a new OS .50 and removed the carb to install on my existing engine. I took it out to test it and......man, this thing runs perfect!!!! Short side of story is that many of us may have gotten a bad carb from OS, we need to push back and make them make it right. I don't know exactly how to do this, but....if you're in the same boat I am, it impacts you financailly....They're saying,
"Yes, send the money", we're saying this POS won't run for shi.....

Thats OK with me. They lost me as a customer as a result of my (P)OS 50. I eventually swapped a 60B onto it and it runs great now. YS 50 here I come. YS 91 is in the future too. As for planks, I'm going electric on most of them.

Light travels faster than sound, thats why some people appear so bright UNTIL you hear them speak.
