Glad your getting a Tiny Tach. It will let you know how your prop is working with that motor. As you said down in your other post the 9.8 is a little puny for the FS14.

Tom, I'll be in the water on Saturday. To bad you are to far away, weather is finely getting cooler!

The real question is this,
Has anyone with a portable tank not run their engine out of fuel by forgetting to open the vent at least once?
The vent was opened, this is one of the new EPA bs tanks!
