DIRECTIONS FOR USING ZDZ ENGINES
(Please READ this carefuly and become FAMILIAR with these instructions before using
the engine)
ZDZ two-stroke gasoline engines are intended for large models and offer excellent power to weight ratio. Before being
shipped from the factory, each ZDZ engine is tested and pre-adjusted. As a result, there is rarely need for the user to make
much in the way of adjustments. In general, they require only some minor carburettor adjustments that take into consideration
the propellers and mufflers being used.
BASIC SPECIFICATION
All ZDZ engines are equipped with diaphragm carburetors made by Walbro or Tillotson. (These carburetors are adjusted with
two mixture screws that are marked with the letter "H" (for the adjustment of High speed) and by the letter "L" (for the
adjustment of idle and the acceleration from idle to full throttle). Basic adjustment - Both mixture adjustment screws are
opened 540 degrees (1.5 turns) from the fully closed (stop) position.)
ZDZ engines are equipped with commonly sized special SKF ball bearings. The piston con rod is equipped with SKF needle
bearings. All ZDZ engines are equipped with NGK BMR6F spark plugs since 2003.The newest version of ZDZ ignitions use
the NGK BM6F* spark plugs. Use the BM6F only in the new version ZDZ ignitions. Other ignitions like Falkon, Ezm etc.
can have radio interference when using a non-resistor spark plug like the BM6F
* ZDZ engines shipped to North America are equipped with the NGK BMR6F resistor spark plug. Non resistor sparks
plugs are not to be used in ZDZ engines, in the North Amerocan area.
FUEL
We recommend the use of a good quality super (95+ Octane) gasoline and a semisynthetic or synthetic oil (specifically
formulated for high performance air cooled two stroke engines) in 40:1 ratio. Make sure that the mixture is filtered before
use. Avoid to use felt-filters inside the tanks which can make fuel intake to the carburrettor difficult.
EXHAUST SYSTEM
We recommend you to order and use suitable muffler from following producers:
JMB - mufflers and in-cowl mufflers http://www.jmb-brecka.com
KS – mufflers http://www.krumscheid-metallwaren.de
AMT- mufflers, in-cowl mufflers and tuned pipes http://www.amtmodel.cz
Many other muffler suppliers are worldwide and you can get their contacts from your local dealer.
We do not recommend to make experiments with own design of mufflers, badly designed mufflers can cause
overheating of engine and damage the engine which will cancel warranty.

How to mount exhaust systém depends on its type. Most manufacturers recommend the proper mounting
method for their mufflers.
COOLING OF ENGINE– BAFFLINGS
One of the most important aspect of an engines installation is its cooling. Be sure that ratio between the area for air intake
into the cowl and air outlet from cowl of the model is at least 1:3 which means the size of intake is at least three times smaller
than the size of outlet vent.
Directional air baffles are HIGLY recomended. Please see attached photo. The air should be directed to and through the
cylinder/s by baffles. Very important is to target the airflow to the center of the cylinder/s and heads. Baffes can be made of
plywood, fiberglas or sheet metal. Overheated engines are NOT covered by the ZDZ warranty. EXAMPLE OF WELL
MADE BAFFLINGS
ENGINE MOUNT
The engine can be mounted directly to firewall or to a engine box which is conical changing its shape gradually from engine
to a firewall. Non-symetric solution of box helps to decrease vibration level. IN ANY CASE soft rubber spacers or soft silent
blocks should not be used. This solution can cause damage of the engine and bearing by providing even higher vibration
level.
Engine box if made of multiple layer plywood should be 7mm thick and when finished can be covered by one ply of fiber and
epoxy to make it stronger. This size works well for engines up to 160B2RV. For bigger engine plywood should be even
thicker.

MORE examples of correct mounting you can see on www.zdz.cz or www.rcshowcase.com and their user galleries.
ADJUSTMENT OF THE ENGINE
After fitting the engine into the model and after installation of the ignition, you can start the engine. (Note: Installation of the
ignition must be in accordance with the manufacturer's directions.)
1. Switch on the ignition, close the choke and suck gas into the intake of the carburetor by flipping the propeller over counterclockwise. As soon as the engine is wet, it should start to run, but will stop due to the rich mixture. Next, open the choke and
start the engine again by flipping as before.
Note: The time it takes to draw gas into the carburetor depends on the length of the fuel feed to the carburetor.
Safety Notes: In the event that you adjust the engine in your model, be sure to switch on the receiver and the transmitter
before starting it. It is NECCESSARY if the transmitter is set to "idle".

WARNING: IF THE THROTTLE IS SET TO ANY SPEED ABOVE AN IDLE, THE MODEL MAY MOVE
IMMEDIATELY WHEN THE ENGINE STARTS!. AT ALL TIMES, SECURE THE MODEL AND/OR HAVE A HELPER
WHO HOLDS THE MODEL SECURELY WHILE STARTING THE ENGINE. FOR LIGHTWEIGHT MODELS BE
CAREFUL BECAUSE, EVEN AT IDLE, THE MODEL CAN MOVE TOWARDS YOU..
2. Let the engine run for about 30-60 seconds (depends on the outside temperature) on idle to allow it to warm up and then
advance the throttle slowly.
3. Keeping well away from the propeller (behind it), adjust the engine to maximum RPM with the mixture adjustment screw
marked with an "H" When ready, turn the needle 90degrees to the left to make engine rich enough for IN-FLIGHT max
RPMs which are higher than on the ground. Measure the RPMs by Epower RPM meter or any other optical RPM meter.
4. Reduce the throttle and set the idle mixture with the mixture adjustment screw marked "L". Then use the same screw to
adjust for a smooth transition from idle to full throttle. A well-adjusted engine will have a stable idle and will not surge up
and down after the throttle is closed.
5. If it accelerates slightly when the throttle is closed, the engine is too lean. SOLUTION: Open the mixture screw "L" a
little and check the idle again.
6.On the other hand, if it slows down after the throttle is closed, the engine is too rich. SOLUTION: In this case, close the
mixture screw „L“ a little and check the idle again.
7. If you give your WARMED engine full throttle and it has a „delayed response“ with acceleration it is too lean
SOLUTION: Open the mixture screw "L" a little and check the idle again.
8. If you give your WARMED engine full throttle and response is burbling and slow transition engine is too rich.
SOLUTION: In this case, close the mixture screw „L“a little and check the idle again.
When adjusting the carburettor, it is strictly prohibited to run the engine. It MUST be stopped during carburetor setup to
avoid any contact between you and rotating propeller which can cause serious injury or death. .
Note: If you change propeller diameter and/or pitch, the engine may need to be re-adjusted.
Note: To reduce noise, install an engine intake filter and use a suitable expansion muffler.

BREAK-IN PERIOD
For break-in use more lubricated fuel (35:1) . You can fly during the BREAK-IN period with your model but it is strictly
prohibited to run the engine on full throttle for longer period than 20seconds for first 3 hours of run.
Perfect COOLING is one of the most important parts of run and break-in too. SEE COOLING paragraph to be sure if your
solution is correct.
