So I did search using MA function and google, just putting it out there.
Fresh engine rebuild, I got everything set up based on HPI instructions. Surprisingly I got everything to fire up and running no problem out of the gate, zero leaks. Started heat cycling the engine on the stand yesterday. Today I am working on timing. It's very close to 17* btdc, but when I move the stator plate I think I'm chasing my tail because timing doesn't really seem to move much when adjusting the stator plate. Am I missing something or could it be my timing light just being an old piece of shit?
I'm at the point now that I kinda just want to run it and tune timing off temp because it's running and starting just fine. Am I going to run into an issue breaking in the engine if timing is too advanced, even if I don't let it get too hot?
Just for info I'm running DMP AJH with quad malossi reeds and mikuni tm24 with a 165 main jet and 12.5 idle jet and as a start it's running great.
Can any more experienced people give me their advice? thanks all. (edited)
