Al not everyone knows that the amount of work done in an internal combustion engine is dependent on Delta T. The higher it is the more work done.All these different ideas on the ideal CHT temperature! Oh my!
Never had any those problems with the EGT.
As popular as they are, I'm thankful that everybody doesn't run in the box stock classes. "Fixed jet" is not what I read in the Briggs & Stratton rulebook. There is some leeway. Even after that, people adjust the float level. Same as a different jet. But I'm glad to hear you like EGT, at least I think that's what you said.Al not everyone knows that the amount of work done in an internal combustion engine is dependent on Delta T.

It is Usually taught in college level Thermal Dynamics. Usually around the 3rd. year engineering classes.
So it is not something that everyone understands or is even exposed to.The same way that I don't have a clue on how to electrically wire a house or paint a car. I never studied it.
On some of the engine that are being raced in the stock classes, I don't think you can even change the jet size? If that is the case then It would be very hard to change the EGT ? If I am wrong in this assumption. Then I am sure that someone will correct me. Believe it or not. I have been wrong in the past. My wife reminds of this often!
But I cannot think of running a racing engine without knowing the EGT. Once you do, It makes a difference.in how you tune the engine.
Well after reading his posts for over 10 years I have a pretty good idea of how smart the man is and what he has done for karting in general, but his skull must be thicker than tungsten when it comes to certain topics. Hence why I said dense.Only a fool would call Al dense.
Took 12 posts to finally get it out. Thanks for staying on topic fellas380-420
is what I run mine at. Not going to argue with anyone it was just what was recommended by the engine builder and Jody at ARC. I used a temp lead long enough to know how much I had to tape to get that temp then I took it off.
