Hey everyone one quick question. When you remove the muffler from your OH160 tec. does it blow about 6" of blue flame?

Thanks O and Happy 4TH

I'd say the timing is a little off, or the mix a little rich. If dark out, yeah you will see a little flame... (Cool Huh? He, He, He,!)

timing wize everything is set to the proper specifications and checked and reset several times.I have two OH160 engines and they both do the same thing. When its running you can see into the cylinder around the valve. I have never seen anything like it, not stock anyway. The engine has plenty of horsepower and is on my sons 69 ss12 pulling tractor.

Ill try to lean the mixture some.

if you're pulling, i would leave it alone. It's probably better that way anyways. With no muffler, it's probably normal function and if you lean it up too much, it will have a tendency to run hotter and have less power.
