I know it sounds like if I would lean it a little more it would clean up, but it just slows down. Its like the needle has no sweet spot.

the needles were not the best, it might be fun to slap a fine thread needle from a older postage stamp backplate on it. i might have a non blued (black oxide) cylinder, i'll look when i get back from thanksgiving. i know for sure i got a few NOS piston/cylinders from the later series Testors engines.

Phil. One observation from the video which confirms a needle problem. Every time you touch the needle to adjust it, before you've begun to turn it, the engine dies a little. That tells me that the thread on the needle is loose causing either an air leak, sidways movement in the needle tip altering the fuel flow or probably a combination of both. If you haven't already tried, slip a little fuel hose over the needle to seal the threads & see if that helps.

Hey Phil, I pressed-out the NVA's of both; a Wen-Mac .049 case that Bob had sent me.. and an old broken Cox .049 "horseshoe" backplate that I had in my parts-box. They're very close in size.

testors mccoy running poorly video Wen-ma10

The Wen-Mac NVA's OD measures .1135". The thru-hole in the venturi measures .113". The "Cox" NVA's OD at the splines measures .119". Ideally; a 3mm drill (.1181") would be the size to use for a press-fit. You could alternately use a #31 drill (.120") and some JB-Weld.

If you don't have any Cox NVA's laying around.. I'd be glad to send you the one I just pressed-out.. along with a needle and spring.

I wanted to make three test runs with this nos needle on 10%-15%-20% fuel today, but mother nature wouldnt have it. Here is a short clip with the new needle on 10% fuel before I got rained out.

Well that sounds far happier. Thumbs Up   A little more nitro & she'd be running sweet as a button.  Needle must have been the problem as suggested.

Looks like the design limitation factor hit a proverbial brick wall in that there was scarcely 200 rpm variation between 10%, 15%,and 20% Nitro fuel used .....
Great work and informative vid !!!!
Thanks for sharing ..........

Phil, if you remember, a couple of years ago I had a Wen-Mac engine that had a broken needle valve, so I pressed out the Wen-Mac NVA and pressed in a Cox product engine NVA.  I was getting around 14.6K on it with a 5x3 and 35%.  So what you're getting is about the same.  I think these engines like to run at about that RPM, and no matter what NVA, they have a very narrow adjustment band.
