That is why I stayed out of this as long as I could. I would like to hear from someone that is actually employed as an engineer on small engines, but I doubt we have any here. Anything posted prior on this is personal opinion and subject to debate. When in doubt, I go with manufacturers recommendation. I would like more info on that smokestack thing and what qualifies them as experts on this situation
I can't dissagree on the manufacturers recommendations, thats what they are there for. I was only in reference to the old engines of years gone by, and the types of engines those folks enjoy. I didn't reference anyone to being an expert, not do I claim to be. Just merely stating cooling, and oiling shouldn't be a problem at a lower speed. In my opinion.
As far as saftey, I wouldn't recommend it, but not my equipment as overspeed is very likely if forgotten about;)
