Sorry the ignition is Unison Industries Slick Magneto , the engine has 50 hours so I suppose they are correctly timed

This is new to me …I ‘m not sure to know what "eyebrows" are ? is some device that is not standard in the kit ? some kind of conveyors that you install inside in inlets of upper cowling

It IS standard in the kit. It consists of fiberglass pieces glassed in to smooth the inlet airflow above the air inlets.

Mel accennato i pezzi in fibra di vetro che vanno all'interno della mucca superiore che le transizioni (liscia) il flusso d'aria dall'ingresso al camino.

Ci sono anche i deflettori di alluminio che ottenere rivettati per i deflettori e alzarsi davanti a cilindri #1 e #2. Lo scopo di questi è quello di spingere verso l'alto l'aria sopra i due cilindri anteriori e costringendolo alla parte posteriore due.

Che vi aiuterà a bilanciare tutte le temperature del cilindro.

Vorrei anche avere il tuo tempismo magneto controllato, solo per essere positivo che è corretto per il tuo motore. Se è avanzato, dire 28 gradi anziché 25 gradi, si vedrà di CHT alta durante le impostazioni ad alta potenza.

In English:
Mel mentioned the fiberglass pieces that go on the inside of the top cow that transitions (smooths) the airflow from the inlet to the cowl.

There are also aluminum deflectors that get riveted to the baffles and stand up in front of cylinders #1 and #2. The purpose of these is to push the air up over the front two cylinders and forcing it to the back two.

That will help balance all the cylinder temperatures.

I would also have your magneto timing checked, just to be positive it is correct for your engine. If it is advanced, say 28 degrees rather than 25 degrees, you will see high CHT’s during high power settings.

Pictures of the inlet area please. We can see if the eyebrows are installed.

Thanks!

I have a customer in Balzano who might be able to help you. Elmar Marinoni lives there, and flies a Rocket. You could ask him to have a look?

Strikler & Marinoni OHG - I do not have a telephone number. Sorry!

Good luck!

Recheck your engine specifications. I think that 400 degrees is acceptable.

Quite a few of us have been there.

Rejet the carb to flow more fuel on take off.

You will be amazed how much this helps.
