Use low nitro fuel (5% is best IMO) and a hot glow plug with a long reach like he McCoy MC59. Adjust the idle needle for a slow reliable idle and the high speed needle for about 400-500rpm rich from peak. If the midrange is rich as is sometimes common with SuperTigre/Como Engines, you adjust the spraybar which is the two little screws on the side of the carb that holds the spraybar in. Adjust the spraybar in roughly ‘1-hour’ increments aiming the fuel inlet lower towards the engine mount. It is always best to start out with the spraybar “straight in”; with the carburetor removed from the engine, looking into the bottom of the carb, the “cats eye” should be visible and centered in the bore.

Many times, the fuel nipple will basically end up aiming at the rear mounting hole. Often I’ve found this is necessary until the engine has a couple gallons of fuel through it. It is not necessary to program the transmitter to open the throttle slower. Setting the carb properly will 99% of be time cure any midrange issues you may have. Setting a SuperTigre/Como carburetor like conventional 2-needle carburetors will likely make the idle/midrange lean because you are trying to make the idle needle do the work of the idle mixture and midrange (when the midrange is likely rich) and that isn’t how the carburetor is designed to be setup.
A rich engine will blubber and clear out usually (unless way too rich), a lean engine will hesitate or cut out....Continue Reading

For those 510’s with the simple “T” style connector into the back of the alternator, this is a pretty straight forward conversion.

The Alternators
The OLD (externally regulated Alternator) had the “N” and “F” connected by the plastic “T” connector.

“N” Neutral was connected by a Y (yellow) wire.
[This is the top of the “T” connector]
“F” Field was connected by a W/B (White, black stripe) wire.
[This is the stem of the “T” connector]
The NEW IR ALT (internal regulated alternator) will have two connections, also in a T configuration like the old unit.

“S” Sense is connected to the battery (direct +12 Volts)
[This is the top of the “T” connector]
“L” Lamp is connected to the Warning lamp light.
This connection has TWO functions. By Sensing the circuit is turned on when the ignition is, it will energize the alternator. SECOND: when the alternator FAILS, and the engine is running, it will GROUND this connection – providing a ground path to turn on the “ALT” warning lamp. (you should see the “ALT” lamp glow when the ignition is first turned on, before starting the car).
How to modify the wiring
Before tossing that old voltage regulator into the trash bin
cut OFF the connector block.

Splice the W (white) wire to the Y one. (Sense circuit)
Splice the W/R (white/red) wire to the W/B one. (Lamp circuit)

This the wiring at the HARNESS, compare it to the regulator wiring, both should be the same – but some replacement units did not follow...Continue Reading
