Re: Engine now pinging
Try some water injection and drive it hard or some hi-sh rpm you may have some carbon build up in cylinders...
An old technique in the carb days was to inject / squart some 2 stroke/ upper cylinder lube into engine while idling fast, then turn off leave for a couple of hours.Then take it out on hi rpm drive.Like speed limit in third gear [manual] etc..The lube softens carbon and rpm hopefully gets rid of it..
Often if there is a sharp piece of carbon in cylinder it glows hot and ignites combution too soon causing detonation...
Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!
