Default Re: How hot?

I will check the plug tonight but I am running it at 16:1 so not sure what to do if it is the plug.

The exhaust seems to leak a little bit at the point where it connects to the engine. I only say that because there is a bit of oil spray. Would this cause it to overheat?

I just drove it about 2 miles, at about 1/2 to 3/4 throttle the whole way, killed it, spit on it, and the head was easily hot enough to make it boil. So I'm convinced something's up.

Does anybody else have any other input? It's a grubee skywhawk 66cc GT5. Slant head. Probably have put 1.5 tanks through it.
