Today I started my search for more power after the first successful flight last week.
After talking with Wayne from Rangiora Light Aviation who has his hangar next to mine, I changed my mind about what’s next 🙂
I am just going to list the points of action, and will elaborate a bit more in the coming days 🙂
- Advance the timing about 10 degrees so that the mixture valve closes earlier. Although I am not so convinced now, after I had another look at the timing diagrams I made earlier of the valve position in relation of the crank shaft. I want to have another good look at them, and show Wayne.
- Run engine with 92 octane petrol instead of 100 octane. Also advance to ignition timing from 30 to 25 deg.
- Create more compression by removing 1 mm of material of the bottom of the cylinder, resulting in a smaller combustion chamber.
