You need a test wheel, Ive got one you can have for £225, used for an hour from new, great for running your engine in and setting it up.I'm not lending any more stuff out due to some tosser on this site not returning my prop.

Didn't run it on the tap I backed it down the slip and ran my engine in with it.Works great,I revved engine upto 7.5k to seat my new rings in with motor attached to ddt so I could see what was going on.

Why's that ? I had 18 psi water pressure,temp gauge was normal, I warmed engine up then increased rpm slowly over the hour. Ive seen an f1 motor running over 9k with a test wheel on, its what they were made for.

i was alway led to believe that you shouldnt rely on the water impeller for cooling as it cant pump enough water to cool the engine. When running along the water is forced up the pickups. You should remove one of the blanks in the tuner adaptor and put a hose adaptor straight in there
