    Jim, the fuel tank is behind the instument panel type, it started to leak in various places, after trying to repair it multiple times i bit the bullet and had a new one fabricated. Thanks for the tip on the choke circuits, I will check those all out.

    Hello Michael

    What you describe, I have experince a few times.

    You give full throttle, and when you get up a few hundred feet the engine starts to go bad and a moment later to run well again. What most likely happens is that an exhaust valve starts to jam. If you use a lot of 100LL, the lead deposits can cause this problem. You can get rid of some of the lead deposits if you cruise over 5000rpm. The problem can also occur even if you use unleaded fuel, but then primarily due to excessive heat.

    If the cylinder heads and valves dont have any abnormal level of ash deposits and if you use unleaded fuel, most indications are that the engine runs with a lean mixture. You can raise the throttle needles a notch and try, that will lower the exhaust temperature. What you will notice is that the engine consumes a little bit more fuel per hour, now you can see if the problems goes away. If the problem still occur, the cylinder heads most likely should be disassembled, cleaned and checked.

    Roger, I have a smimlar problem to the one you describe. On yours, did the RPM drop suddenly? Mine dropped instantly and without warming at 200 feet from 5000 to 4500 then to 4200.
