Hi Everyone,
I am just curious, does anyone use EGT (exhaust temp. guages) on your Lazairs?
I used to, back in 1985, on my Rotax 185's, and found them very useful. It's great for tuning carbs to the max, without seizing the engine. Back then, I kept them below 1150 degrees F at full power. And if they went over a little, I could back the throttle down a little, and carry on, because the temp would fall at a lower throttle setting(but this indicates a lean setting). I think I will get another dual EGT gauge for my newer Solo engines.

No need for EGT's on direct drive tractor engines tuned properly ???
