    73 but was wondering if it makes a difference if it is low on tranny fluid.

    Yeah I think mine is 67, 1 wire? I doubt low trans fluid would be the issue?

      I don't really even know. LOL. I never checked on GPS. Sold it a few years back. But I had the prop pitched for pushing on hard ground really. If I had to guess I'd say 50 mph in skinny water. They're actually fastest on wet grass. One I had was a 6 cylinder angle valve Lycoming. Now that was fast. LOL. They are fun!

        Got the Scamp running today started right up but tranny line at the radiator is pissing out fluid so had to shut it down.
        I did what Blue Print engines recommended using Royal Purple break in oil and pulled the plugs to get the oil pressure up then rechecked the timing and she's running great.
        I am a happy camper I almost pissed myself when she fired off so fast.
        Having a drink to celebrate. Cheers all.

              I remember something weird with the nss and backup lights. Like reversing the plug made a diff.....Or I had the "wrong" bulbs in it that looked similar...but were wrong. Something dumb.

              I think it is something simple to fix but will figure it out here soon I hope.
              Thanks for the great engine I am real happy with it and will send you the video of the first start up if you want it.

                You don't have my "new" email?
                I'm a vendor so I think I can post it. If it gets deleted. Just click my avatar. It's on my profile.
