Thank you for purchasing a QUICKDRAW stationary model engine. You have purchased the finest engine system available today.
As the engine was designed as a stationary engine, final assembly and usage other than stationary mounting rests upon the consumer.
THANK YOU FOR CHOOSING QUICKDRAW
Please be sure and run HONDA HP2 motorcycle oil at 14:1 or 10 oz. per gallon. You can find this oil at a HONDA motorcycle dealer. Your engine will run the fastest on 87 octane regular gasoline. Be sure and let the starter tang engage the flywheel tangs before pull starting. The (2) water fittings on the head are the water outlet lines. The (2) fittings below the exhaust port are the water in fittings. Be sure and run (2) water pickups. Do not use one pickup and a tee. Some engines have a hose barb fitting on the crankcase. This is for a water pump (usually only used on a clutch motor). If you do not plan on running a water pump, be sure and block this fitting off.
WYK: The low speed adjustment screw is under the clear plug on the top of the carb.
The barbed fitting on the carb is the fuel in. The smooth fitting is the return.
WYK: LOW SPEED NEEDLE : 6 3/4 - 7 TURNS OUT
HIGH SPEED NEEDLE : 1 1/2 TURNS OUT
WJ: LOW SPEED NEEDLE: 2 1/4 TURNS OUT
HIGH SPEED NEEDLE: 7/8 TURNS OUT
These are starting points only and may need to be adjusted.

STORAGE OR WATER INGESTION:
This procedure is for when you are storing your motor for the winter, or you have gotten water in the motor and can not run the motor again. Remove the four base bolts holding down the cylinder. Next remove all silicone from both the cylinder base and the top of the case. Use WD40 and spray down the oiling holes in the case. Rotate the crank while doing this to displace any water that may be trapped in the bearings. Pour out the water and WD40, repeat this until no water is present in the bottom end. After no signs of water is evident, use HONDA HP2 oil through the same oil holes and coat bearings thoroughly. Be sure and also add some oil to the lower rod bearing. Use the holes on the sides of the rod to reach the bearing and the space in between the rod and crank wheels. Smear some HONDA HP2 oil on the piston and in the cylinder bore. Using clear silicone (high temp. is not required) apply lightly to bottom of the cylinder. As you get closer to the cooling holes on the exhaust side, go a little heavier with the silicone. Reinstall the cylinder and tighten the base bolts back down.
If your motor was equipped with the billet starter be sure to periodically remove the starter, and using a lite grease repack the rollers in the starter. Reinstall using LOCTITE 242 (blue in color) and tighten back down. Wipe any excess grease off of the shaft. RING REPLACEMENT
We recommend that you send the cylinder back to be honed for straightness and proper finish for the best ring seal.
These are the new style pipes. These only use 1 o-ring between the spigot and the engine and put one 0-ring between the aluminum flange and the back of the spigot. After running for the day, remove the flex from both the header and the body. Dry off and recoat inside and outside where it plugs into the coupler with Anti-Seize. Failure to do this will result in a permanently rusted in flex coupling.
If you want the repairs done correctly and the latest revisions, you need to send your engine back to us. We don't recommend having other shops work on your Quickdraw because they don't have the equipment it takes to do it correctly. That is because they don't need that equipment to work on a Zenoah.
WARNING: Always set your boat up so you can kill the engine with the radio. You will need a kill switch connected and activiated by a 3 rd channel to kill your engine reliably. Simply closing the carburetor will NOT kill the engine reliably, you MUST have a 3 rd channel kill switch installed. Some radios have a feature that allow you to mix the 3 rd channel with your throttle channel, this will allow you to engage the kill switch through your throttle trigger. Read your radio programming instructions and understand them. DO NOT operate your boat until you are positive you can kill the engine reliably with a kill switch of some type. You need to contact the kill switch manufacturer/supplier and get the correct kill switch that is compatible to your particular radio. For example, you can review the gas kill switch atwww.killerrc.com A good kill switch will also be a fail safe if you have radio issues. Shop for quality, not a cheap price.
