Hi all. Probably should've posted here before posting in the forums. Oh well, too late now.
I am Rob - af0h is my Ham Radio Callsign. I live south of St. Louis, MO and have been an avid MB'er since the spring. Yes, i'm still new to MB's - but not new at all to 2-stroke engines.
Right now, i'm running a Stinger 66cc HT on a Huffy Cranbrook. Standard 44-tooth sprocket works great here, since i'm surrounded by hills. With over 600-miles on it, I couldn't ask for any better performance considering what the quality of these engines really is and how things happen to these China Girls.
Broke in my motor at 20:1 dino oil, after 300-miles switched to Poulan Synthetic 2-stroke mixed with 1-oz. of MMO - had a surprising build-up from the initial 20:1 mix. This gives me a final ratio of 32:1, which seems to be fine for these little monsters. I use the same formula for all of my 2-stroke engines (and have for years), just at 40:1 final mix.
Well, looking forward to many more posts and meeting lots of fellow MB'ers on here.
