    Engine Troubleshooting Ideas

    All, I'm helping a new guy at the field tune his RCGF engine. We start it up, lean the High needle for Max RPMs and then go to idle and start leaning the Low needle. The problem is that as we lean the Low, the idle RPMs rise to 2500-300. We can see the carb arm is closed all the way. If we...
