Hi all,
Could someone have a look at your G 34 and tell me the settings of your high and low needle. I just can't get this thing to run right, and I would like to try and set the needles to where someone else has them for a good place to start.
The engine is in a Hawk III with a Century muffler.

Mine was real picky about the temp, humidity on the day of flying. I would have to tweek the high needle every time I went to the field.

Set the low needle all the way closed, with a piece of fuel tubing (new), attach it to the fuel nipple, blow through it while turning the low needle out until you hear air passing through the needle. This should put you in the ball park.

My high needle was between 1 3/4 to 2 1/4 open. If you are just a little lean then it will heat up and start to lean out even more. I was running CP 30% and an Enya #3. I had this problem until I made a new heat sink haed for it. After I installed the new heat sink it was a god engine.

Thanks for the help
Used the setup you gave me and it worked like a charm. Got the engine to run and now all I have to do is get some new plugs and do the final setup.
Thanks again for the help.

Glad to help. When it was running well it had lots of power, when it would go lean you could smell it and see that the power level was down. You can adjust the MID range by turning the spray bar. I do not recomend this but if for some reason you can not get the mid to richen up or lean out you can do it. Run it a little on the rich side and have fun

Its going now
Well I had to take the carb off and clean it and redo the settings but it was worth it. Now if the wind drops I will be able to test it in a hover and do the final settings. I have only tested it in the garage with the door open a foot, not brave enough to get it in the air and way to close to me. Can't wait to take it out again and continue my hovering practice.
