Surely a run in engine would have more compression than a brand new engine?

Good point on the after run oil, too much that gets up into the head and it could lock up.

I personally stop every engine by shutting the fuel line and ive never had a hydro-locked engine.

If you ask me the Align starter could do with being faster with less torque.

60% of the time, it works every time!

It has do more with machine oil in it and tuning. You start off richer. On YS120 it was a pain in the ass until i had 1 gallon tru it. On 91HZ-R zero issues.

I've used my Align on my OS 105 ever since I've had it and it has had no trouble turning it over under any conditions.

And yes, the cranking compression will firm up a bit after breakin, that's normal due to the seating of the ring.

Still I hear lots of guys complaining about the Align starter and maybe I just got a good one. The wand is crappy, but the starter itself I've put through hell no starter should ever have to go through. No problems with it so far even when heavily abused.

The whole key I have found using the Align starter is to keep the engine from getting flooded. You must clamp off the line into the carb after each flight. That way when you fill, you will not load up the engine. If you do that, the somewhat marginal Align starter will turn over a .90 quite well. Using a bigger more powerful starter only means if you get careless with the fuel you can run the risk of breaking the connecting rod or damaging the piston. So in this case less may be more.

Can't go wrong with a Dynatron. Add the Finer Edge Adapter. It'll start anything you could ever want. Last starter you'll need to buy.

No you can go wrong with it you don't know what you are doing. They more then enough power to bend your piston . See it few time.

Thanks to all you guys for the advice. I delayed my foray back into nitro for now. It will happen, but not quite this season.
