Active Member
So I just bought a used k4.6, guy said it had 1gal thru it, good compression and always put ARO in it. Reason being is cause my cousins engine is shot so I'll be giving him my f4.1 and I'll put this for the mean while until I get my lrp. Anyways, any tips or tricks I should know with this engine? Also what glow plugs would you guys recommend? The temps here are 85f-100f. Will be cooling a lot in the coming months. Thank you

I would get a os#8 plug. See how it runs from there. Good luck with the used motor. I've never had good luck with used nitro engines.
