clutch and N2 carbon tail blades
Hi guys,

tryed to start my engine the other day but it kept shutting off. I htought it was the engine but dismounted it and checked everything and it is fine (Completely new os 55 HZ-H). I then saw that if i gave immediately half gas it would start fine but anything less it would struggle to rev up and would the slowly shut down (ps i tried all combination of carburations so it isnt that), so i think it is the clutch which is kicking in too soon, killing the engine. Anyone have a similar prob? I also had a prob with the starting shaft, it got stuck and wouldnt spin freely so had to dismount it and saw that the fit is too tight within the clutch bell and so sanded it down so it is ok now.

following question. How do you guys find the tail blades given in the kit?

Thanks

Jonathan

I'm not an expert at motor tuning, but in my experience the OS55HZ tuning is fairly easy. With what you describe, sounds to me that is the issue. Not the clutch engaging too soon.

There are three needles for tuning, low - mid - high. I Believe low is your issue (Flat Head Screwdriver required)

I found Low should be set about a 1/4 turn (clockwise I think) from factory set point. This is to lean out the low end as they tend to be rich from original setting.

This should solve your issue, and the easiest place to start.

Starter coupling is another issue.. A friend of mine goes through shafts & OWB's all of the time. I threw my first OWB & Shaft the other day but there is a fix.

I read someplace where someone used an align 600 shaft and stacked bearings for spacers. The align shaft is of much harder material and should hold up longer than the outrage junk. I actually did the same swap last night.. Works great so far but we will see how long it holds up. Could even cut the shaft down to the correct lenght, but this was quick and easy.
