    ok, so I ran my new OS engine 1 1/2 - 2 tanks on extremely lean side which made fuel boil in my carb. Will that damage my engine and take away some HP? I am very confused and worried.







    Moved to proper forum.

    you shouldnt have any air in the fuel line. it doesent hurt the engine but the engine needed a steady stream of fuel at all times

    Did you break it in becuase it didn't sound like you did becuase you said a 1 1/2 to 2 tanks.

    Well it sure didnt do your engine any good to run it lean, as far as temp damage ya you more than likely did some, did you even get it broken in before you ran it lean? Good thing it was a OS there forgiving. Run it a little on the rich side for about 2or3 tanks. Take a look at your plug too they hate extreme heat,replace if the coil is all sprung.
