  1. Water Coming Out of Exhaust at Start-up

When it set for a week it looked like a tablespoon of clear water with no smell or taste. No white smoke anytime but still wonder if I have a cracked case or something else wrong.

    Starting with the manual setting one usually has to experiment on the road to find what is ideal - generally the maximum advance you can get away with without knocking.

  4. #25 the devil is in the details. Electric fan placement.

    Finally got everything on my engine compartment list done. Even spent about 3 hours fitting the radiator air director duct around the pusher fan.
    must have tested & tweaked the fan, adjusted the fan thermo sensor & snugged up the wiring about 20 times.

    only to find that the apron would not fit with fan in place as a pusher. The center shelf on the inside of the apron ( where the hand crank housing resides) reaches to far inwards for the 12" fan.
