os 105 hz-r start issues
was out at the flying field today and was trying to start my 105. the engine has a hard time firing. seems as if its not getting fuel. checked the check valve making sure its installed in the proper direction.. glow plug is brand new... pulled the plug to make sure the coil was good... has sufficient glow power also... engine is brand new.. set the high and medium needle to factory specs... high end is 2.50 turns out from fully closed... the medium is 1 turn out from fully closed. carb is open also. using Byron rotor rage 15%. any ideas?
shut up and fly

Does the tank hold pressure?

After you try to turn the engine over if you take the fuel line off does fuel want to jump out of the end of the line?

You can't blow through the check valve you have to draw through it so that means it needs to come off at the tank side and you suck on it.

Everything else sounds good as long as you have fire to the plug.

yes the fuel tank does hold pressure.. also when I disconnected the fuel line it sprays out indicating that there is significant pressure..i took check valve and blew through one end and can feel the diaphragm opening up.. when I blew through the other end I couldn't get the diaphragm to open.. indicating that is good.shut up and fly

If you take the plug out, and crank the engine, do you see any fuel coming out of the plug hole?

Was the engine running ok previously? Is the compression strong? Have you checked the piston and the piston ring by looking at the exhaust manifold?

I'd replace the plug.
My 105 was very very finicky when it came to plugs.
Glowing doesn't mean it's good...It also has to do with the coating on the filament....something to do with chemical reaction stuff that I don't understand but a new plug always got it fired up nicely.
I literally never use the word literally right.

U may try checking the head bolts. I don't know if the shims in the head are ready for 15%. Never had the 105 but may want to check the shims.

Has it been sitting for awhile with the fuel line pinched?

The fuel in the tubing can cause the line to stick closed, and then it will never start. Easy to miss, as your clamp covers the afflicted area.

saw a similar problem recently. It was the glow plug lighter. In the case I saw it was a faulty wire or ground for the Switchglo.

The troubleshooting that found it was to use a different glow plug lighter directly put on the glow plug, no extension wire or anything. Fired right up then.

Switchglo showed everything was ok by the lights.

You might want to prime the engine first without glow. Put your finger over the exhaust to draw fuel up into the carb. Once it is there, then light the plug and give it a spin.Team Synergy

I think you will need to clean the carb and the needle sockets. There might be debris somewhere.
