petrol mix for 102

Post by rosbullterier » Mon Dec 24, 2018 11:27 pm

I am extremely old and have not used this motor for a year so have forgotten what mix was used, quite successfully, a year ago.
It's a 102, TC57068, which is coming up as 1957-58.
Fitted with Amal 416.

Does it require smelly 10.1 or can I get away with 25.1?

I'm very grateful.
Andy

At your extreme age, it's better for you to be treated with care, the same apply's to Seagulls, you could run it with 25:1, but it might be a lot happier at 16:1!

Chuki, you got up specially early to look after me. And on Christmas day . . .
I shall be thinking of you all the way round.

Going to cram this 102 alongside the 170 on the narrow transom. Different powers, different props, different fuel, same driver. Maybe tie the tillers together with a piece of wood.

All the best,
Andy

By the way - how is my message timed at 11.12am and yours at 12.01am?
I know you live in more refined parts . .

I know am's & pm's are difficult when you arrive at the twilight of your years.

And please try & eat your Brussel sprouts & don't hide them in your pocket again this year!
