How clever.

Gentle starting means knowing the throttle settings well enough so that
when the engine starts it revs up to about 800 rpm or so and stays

Are you not bothered by the common hi-wear technique (instantly revving
to 2000 rpm as soon as the engine starts to fire, then throttling back
down) that a lot of mental midgets use?

Never seen people run up their engines to 2000 at startup.

Try using Cam Guard as a rust inhibitor, fly the engine at least 45 minutes weekly to vaporize the H2O condensate in the crankcase. If unable to fly 45 min. weekly get a partner.
