  • rockit key

    is it safe to buy a rokit key for my he23hp

    here is the quote from daves discount motors-

    "Rockit Key (Timing advance) - The G230RC timing is already advanced BTDC 30? at 8000 RPM. Using a Rockit Key to further advance the timing of your G230RC may cause the engine to overheat and seize, due to insufficient lubrication in the cylinder. Do not advance the timing!"

    DO NOT USE A ROCKET KEY WITH THE HE23HP MOTOR or G23ORC. It advances the timing WAY too much and always causes problems.
    Ada All the way.

      Is there any benefit to advancing the timing on a G43LD? It's a tsi if that makes any difference. I've searched a couple different forums and found very little about the rockit key on a GSR. Would the carb need to be tuned to deal with the advanced timing? Thanks.

        People do use rocket keys on the G43 but I however think it's a tad to much. I would advance the timing to half (5deg) using a degree wheel. Carb settings will be almost identical either way you go, you MAY have to richen the high.
        Ada All the way.

          Not recommended!

          I tried one in a GSR and it seized from heat after a very short time.

                  Rocket Key & Octane

                  If you are using a Roket Key in anything, be sure you up the octane of your fuel at the same time. Keep your fuel/oil ratio at 40:1 and use ata least 105 Octane. The higher octane will help.
