Not exactly a PDF but here's a shot of the instructions. I know it says PX but I've never installed a 3 port Pinasco 177 ever. Came with the 2 port. Shitty Pinasco instructions in Engrish

Also, there's nothing special about the Pinasco 2port that would require translating their instructions into something useful.

Just get the timing (18 BTDC for electronic ignition, IIRC) right and avoid air leaks and you're good-to-go.

I've always wondered why you couldn't just slap a 3 port 177 kit on and block the boost port.

You can. In fact, one of Pinasco's aluminum kits comes with a spacer to blank off the third port.

Thanks, Exactly what I was looking for! I tought that the spark plug recommendation was in the leaflet, but I think I got it directly from Pinasco.

Does the running in period up to 1000 km mentioned in the document still relevant? I am curious because in SIP tech tip document mentioned :
Quote:
...The recommended running in
time is actually about 1 hour and not 1500km(1000mls) as some peop-
le mistakenly believe. ...

FWIW, I've never run a kit in anywhere close to 1000 Km. I'd say an hour is more like it. Just don't go wild right out of the chocks, give it five or so good heat cycles, watch for bad sounds and smells, rev it up and down, do some gentle hills, make sure the jetting is good. Then go for it.

This. I normally go two or three heat cycles before I let 'er rip, but that's about it. My Quattrini calls for 3 gallons of gas at 4% mix as the break-in, but doesn't actually specify any limits on how bad you treat it during those three gallons.
