Re: Will rich carb make engine run hotter?
I dont think that would be one of the zillion harmful things from a carb running too rich.
I always thought it was too lean that made it hot.
my memory may be hanging me out on that one though.
I guess if ti was running so badly from teh rich condition it could generate more heat than when running correctly.
I had always thought that the oxygen burned hotter than air, and there for leaner=hotter.
We will find out soon, when someone who knows for sure chimes in
