Alright guys, this one is WIERD!!!! So i finnaly got time to start breaking in my new TT50, hurray! I get her started, at about 2-3/4 turns out on the main needle, and set into a hover, and everything seems okay...then after about 5 minutes, my muffler falls off, oops , i go over there, and she is HOT, so i let her cool, get the muffler back on, and then richen her up to about 3-1/4 turns, but she seems to stay lean so i keep richening the needle, and it really seems like nothings happening. Now the fuel tank is getting low, and then the engine quits...nice little 5 ft auto , i go over to check her out, and she still feels hot, so i turn the needle out a bit more, and it falls off!! WHOA!! I take it all back to my stuff, get the needle back in, turn it all the way in, and then re-set it to about 2-3/4 turns, let it cool again, then start her up...everything seems to be going okay, i hover around for about 1/4 of a tank, then bring her back, land, and shut her off, go over to check, still hot...WHAT THE HE%% IS GOING ON!? Thanks for the help,
P.S.- sorry...forgot to include this...on one of my re-starts, she wouldn't fire, so i check the glow plug, and it had come out!? Wierd...i dunno whats going on with this, any advice would be awesome, thanks alot....Oh, and what is a good temp for this engine to be running at when its not messed up or breaking in? Thanks again.
