PPC Engine Break-In

After the first run of the engine the very next thing you have to do is go through the break-in process.  I’ve been experiencing heating issues with trying to go through the break-in period.  It’s running hot.  I called Six-Chuter’s Rolando and he had me adjust the needle in the carburetor.  This helped but I’m still running overly hot in the 4500-5000 rpm band.

My next steps are to, drain the fuel and put in new fuel, I’m going to double-check the oil/fuel mix ratio to make sure I didn’t mess something up.  I’m also going to call Rolando again to see if there is anything else I can check.
