That's an easy one to answer !

To increase compression you screw the valve in fully.
This makes the engine easier to start.

When running and under normal load conditions the valve is screwed fully out.

Cheers,

Jim

The valve can only be in or out there in no in between. if you got the engine running at a show at say 300RPM keep the valve in. if the engine is working and at rated speed then screw the valve out.

I have read elsewhere of people slow running a lister cs at 300/350 rpm while at shows, can someone explain how they slow the engine down so much, and why when lister state that the engine should rum at 600rpm (615rpm max)
