Adjusting inlet valves

After Saturdays first real flight, today I am starting the next step, finding more power!

After talking with Wayne, we decided to first have a play with the tapped clearance for the inlet valves. He thinks that by increasing the clearance, resulting in the inlet closing earlier, the compression will go up as less mixture is possibly pushed out while the piston is already going up.

So I set all mixture valve clearances to .035″. Also I had to reset the exhaust valve clearances again to .015″ as most of them were a bit more then the .015″ after the nice big run on Saturday.
