Default Post Engine Data

In case you use Savvyanalysis would you mind sharing the link of the engine data here. It helped me always to narrow down issues.

Well, it looks like Mike was right all along

I took the lower cowl off and found the mixture arm was about 1/4" or so off its stop. I then found I could move it that bit extra using the cockpit control. There were witness marks on the cowl - on the angle of the air intake section. A quick "re-profiling" with the Dremel and all now works as it should.

I have another couple of jobs to do before rolling her out and running the engine but I think the problem is solved. Thanks guys!

Thumbs up

Just to close the thread - started up today and back to its normal, sweet self. I just wish all snags were so easy to fix. Well, easy when you have thousands of experts on VAF!

Thanks again, guys.
