    I think the Klotz Benol would do better with high heat.

    In a cylinder they won’t melt that quick normally. Aluminum pistons in diesels will hold up to 1800 degrees for short bursts. The piston isn’t that hot just the exhaust gas. Highest I ever seen was 1999 on a digital gauge.

    Different engines entirely, I burnt the exhaust side off of 7 different pistons on my sled. They’d never make it to 1400

    With no cooling surrounding the cylinder no doubt. Wonder what the exhaust side of the piston on methanol was when I melted it?

    Where you mount the probe matters too.

    Stick wiff da saber @ 40-1..
    I run dominator and Maxima K2,
    both at 32-1. NO CARBON buildup, no smoke after warmup. Doubt bearing failure will ever be an issue.

    The bigger ones seem to dig it. Seems it’s working for you. I had some trouble in the cold weather with it on 50cc saws

    It does well noodling or cutting stumps in a ported 372 and 660 (inside mufflers dry). Bucking I agree that's why I switched to 710.

    It wasn’t aweful, but it never made any carbon. Thus the not burning

    I just saw that this thread was still running. I thought I'd get in a post before the page count hit 700.
