    I think I may have scared the poor fella off :(. Hope not. On a side note.....The DLE60 I did the top end work on had a starting tune of 1.5 turns out both HS LS needles. It ran for the first time since overhaul and flew that way on a day when it was about 62 degrees and 40% RH. You could tell the low end was slightly over rich and there was no sign of sagging when doing up lines.
    He flew with me today and commented that he had richened the LS needle a bit because the engine became a bit lean on the LS. He also went from a 23x8 to a 24x8 prop. Now mind you it is breaking in again and we want good lubrication and good heat cycles for the break in
    but it seems that both weather and prop changes do make the argument for the need to richen a bit. It was 76 degrees and 90% RH turning in to flat out steady rain later on in the day.

  2. I'm still here, I don't scare that easily... I have been in and out of town for work and haven't had any time to mess with it. Other than getting the cowl off. I'm going to try tomorow. I understand the concepts, I am just afraid I damaged the engine as the way it started and ran was horrible and with nothing being changed except the inch larger prop... Well I dont think it shouldn't have made that much of a difference. The hope i have is the weather had really warmed up from when i was flying prior so maybe the combo of the proo and weather was enough to warrent the way it was running. It would not idle no matter how much trim I added and when throttling up it wouldn't really make any RPMs. I ordered a carb rebuild kit so if the adjustments do not work I'll rebuild the carb and try that before I send it off to DA.

    Keep in mind DA is widely loved by just about everyone because they have awesome customer service. So don't think twice about sending it back, it's quick and not expensive at all to have them take a look at it.
