    She's alive, breaking in new poston and rings???

    Well she's Alive with 150 on the front cylinder and 130 on the rear 2 cylinders.

    Fuel get through and running it double dose on the carbs settings

    I know I've got to break in the new bits, I've put some extra 2stroke in the full tank

    What else do I have to do for the break in period etc
    Thanks
    Neil

    I think he said that he made some carb adjustments just before he blew it. It may have been the settings that made him go lean in that cylinder. If he went back to the manual specs he should be okay.

    That's okay Neil. I am definitely too rich right now on my PTO and MAG but after seeing all of this I just left it alone. I am running good so that is all that matters. The best part is that I didn't make any adjustments at all. I had perfect wash one week and then went rich the next after changing my plugs.

    Avoid extended WOT runs, and vary the throttle. After the first tank of fuel, ride it how you want.

    Wash takes a little bit to form/adjust.

    If you swapped to a cooler spark plug, that could change the temp of the combustion chamber and affect wash.
