I decided to pull out of storage after 15+ years my tamiya tg10 mk1 with fs12 engine. It's the 1/8 scale 2000 Subaru wrc Engine was siezed from old nitro oil goop. I cleaned it up. Freed it. Cleaned carb. Got it to work just fine...everything works fine but after about 3min of driving once it gets hot it instantly shuts off and won't restart until it's cooled. Tried leaning and richen mix. Carb has 1 screw and 1 idle opening screw. I replaced lines and clamps. I replaced glow plugs and tried different heat types. The engine doesn't sputter down it just turns off as if I put my finger on carb opening. Temp gun shows 200f to 220f everytime it shuts off. Engine hasn't seen a full gallon since I buy it 15+ years ago and played recently. Any ideas? Thanks
Hi all, I'm just curious - is there a Tamiya nitro engines identification guide out there that someone knows about? There seems to have been so many different variants that all looks extremely similar to the untrained eye - FS12SS, FS12LT, FS12FT, etc... that it would be nice to have a definitive guide to help identify an engine at first glance.
