Thanks to Mr. Moss’ guidance and oversize gudgeons, and Mr Daintree’s custom made oversize piston rings, and a rewound magneto, JLT 823 is yowling in fine style. I am having trouble regulating the oil delivery though, with the Pilgrim’s regulator screws quite far in, she still smokes profusely. The screws are in so far that the oil spits or drips aren’t very distinct, yet I still get billows of light gray smoke. To regulate the oil flow properly, would it be preferable to turn the screws in all the way (even though I can’t count distinct drips) until I get just a haze of oil, or to take the hoses off the Pilgrim for a minute at a time to check the drip rate that way? Thanks for any help on this subject.
