    Dude you crack me up, Brother dont toast your AE.15 thats a really good motor, get the most out of the motor first. Now back to the ae you said that the arm is bent well thats were your L/S is located. When you put that thing back together make sure that your linkages are correct or youll have that motor screaming bloody murder when you go to starting it , just go back on the things that we talked about as far as set up. Now let me say this providing you did everything correctly with the retrictor out of the carb. that motor well haul but. If you run into a problem try and figure it out , you have a manuel right? Most important set that idle with the TX and truck ON. RED

    Well from what I heard it will give you more power but will make your engine run hotter.

    *sigh* I got everything together and I also bought a fuel filter, the carb settings look fine. I started it up and it started acting real weird. It would idle really high, then Id put the throttle on and it would go low and not do anything and die. I tried it like 5 times and I couldnt get it to run good at all....:(

    Hey Red.
    Just wanted to say that it is great to see you helping out this guy so much. Most people can't be bothered to help out in great detail like you are, and guys get frustrated and quit the hobby. There are a few guys that have help me out in my times of need (isn't that right SteveM....lol). It makes the hobby better when you have fellow hobbiests willing to help out when your in a fix. Anyways...just wanted to give credit where credit is due.
