Is this the engine we were talking about in chat that was supposed to be "good"? If you did the test correctly and those are the numbers you got, that sucks. Mad

How do you do the test correctly?
I thought the aircooled community was full of honest folks. Guess not.

I think I'm srapping the 40 horse idea and getting a 1600.
Going to grampas house to see what he has.

Did you do the test on a test stand with a starter? I never have done it by hand, but imagine it would be hard to spin it over fast enough to get accurate readings turning it over by hand.
