I would strongly advise after run oil if you dont already use it. A coupla drops in the carb and a couple down the the glow plug hole, turn it over a few times then pop the glow plug back in. It will protect it while its not being used. I use after run in all my engines.

Hi jon, I allready have after run oil, the only I have found is after running a tank full it takes time to restart it again? Any ideas what that might be?

Possibly over heating. Other option being, how much fuel has the engine through it? Was it run in correctly? Has it been thrashed and abused? I only ask because the piston and cylinder may be worn.

To solve the over heating, i would return the main fuel mixture needle to factory settings. Which if my memory serves me correctly, is 2 full turns from closed. I personally would go to 3. Run the car, and slowly lean it out at 1/8th of a turn till you get good performance yet a good trail of smoke. I dont tune by temp and ive never popped an engine yet. If this fails, seal the engine. This guards against air leaks. The rear plate and carb. I remove them, apply a high temp silicone sealant and reassemble and let cure for 24 hours. All else fails, new piston and liner.

I have 6 of these engines, ive sealed all of them like that. All run sweet but they are also low usage

Hi guys,
I have just completed fixing my XTR-3E (got it from a friend) but I cant find a rotor starter that can fit the starter shaft. I am planning to convert it to a pull start instead and I have read that the Thunder Tiger PN0229 can fit directly.

Unfortunately, I can't seem to get that in Malaysia (or not sure where to get it). Is there any other brands that can be used instead that will fit directly to the XTR-3E engine without any modifications? If its a rotor starter for other brand, then that might help too, so I can get the rotor starters that has the correct starter shaft.

Please help! I really want to get this unit running very soon. Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Alan

Use a chordless drill with a torque setting. Also, must have a speed of atleast 1000rpm.
