I recived a Hyper 10sc from ebay,Looks new but heres the problems
Steering wheel is broke off the tx
wont attempt to start,floods out even with hsn fully closed

heres what I found wrong
The carb slide is very tight in the carb
The low speed needle has wear marks on it like it was rubbing the brass insert.
the engine has plenty compression and pinch,it lokks as though its never ran,Shiny aluminum piston
the glow plug had double gaskets on it

whats up with this engine,I suspect that its flooding due to the needle being messed up but the slide after the carb is cleaned is way too tight

update
carb full in pieces with only the barrel,barrel is still too tight
found an air leak at the hsn with the aluminum washers that are supposed to seal the fuel inlet swivel but the carb is plastic so Im affraid to overtighten to make the seal

engine did however start but only idle with hsn @ .5 turn from closed....barely open and it still died every time from flooding out

is there any info on this engine?
manual?
another aluminum carb that fits
and what erks me the most is complaining about this product....im a huge diehard ofna fan
