Re: Advancing timing on C223. How much is too much?

I personally have run every type of oil based fuel including plain old used oil. Only adjusted fuel screw to account for egts never adjusted timeout further then factory spec. Just change fuel filter just as often as oil filter.

Re: Relays

I'll ne heading to elizabeth city for some training and will be down there for about 3 weeks. Maybe we could do a pup meet in Raleigh. How do we go about getting some people together. I have some spare parts I'm also willing to let go or swap.

Injection pump rebuild

Anyone know of an injection pump rebuild kit and part numbers? I've rebuild a lot of carborators and rebuild injection pumps for jet engines so this can't be impossible to do myself. I'm also in touch with a machine shop. Thanks all

You'll see three shafts running parallel. The three groovs should alight while in nutral. If they arnt, put the shifter into the grove t...
