US E R GUIDE
Introduction
Congratulations on your purchase of the newest
and one of the most technically advanced 2-stroke
model airplane engines in the world. Whether
you are new to the sport of model aviation or an
experienced flier, you will enjoy the features of the
new Evolution® Engines Control Line (CL) Engine.
The Evolution CL Engine is designed to be the most
powerful yet controllable in its class, extremely
easy to start and operate, and provide years of
enjoyable service. It incorporates many unique
design features, such as our Set Right™ needle
valve assembly. Every feature is designed to ensure
success with your new engine.
This user’s guide is intended to provide the basic
information to operate and maintain your Evolution
CL Engine.
Important: While the Evolution engine is extremely
easy to operate, if this is your first experience flying
a model airplane, it is highly recommended that
you have the help of an experienced modeler during
the first few flights. Your local hobby store or flying
club can put you in touch with an experienced pilot
in your area.

Mounting the Engine
Installing the Muffler
The muffler mounting accessory package includes mounting screws
(2), lock washers (2), muffler gaskets (2) and an L- wrench.
Securely tighten all engine mounting screws and re-check tightness
before each flying session.
All model airplanes include an engine mount of some
type. It is extremely important that the engine be securely
mounted to the airplane’s engine mount. Follow the
instructions included with the airplane for mounting
the engine.
Important: Before each flying session, check that all
engine mounting screws are securely tightened.

Using the included muffler mounting screws and lock
washers, attach your choice muffler with the included
hex wrench. Be sure the lock washers are placed over the
screws and that one gasket is placed between the muffler
and the engine. A second gasket is included as a spare.
Securely tighten both screws with moderate torque. The
exhaust outlet of the muffler can be rotated to allow the
exhaust outlet to be repositioned for various applications.
1.Loosen the lock nut on the back of the muffler and then
loosen the assembly screw.
2.Rotate the rear half of the muffler to the desired
position.
3.Tighten the assembly screw first and then tighten the
lock nut.
Important: After five runs, retighten the muffler
mounting screws and head bolt. Heat and vibration from
these first few runs can cause the gasket to compress.
Once the muffler screws are re-tightened, they will
remain tight and leak-free until the muffler is removed.
Also, if you have chosen the tube style muffler, tighten the
muffler thru-bolt at this time as well—loosen the lock
nut on the back of the muffler, tighten the thru-bolt via
the screwhead at the front of the muffler then retighten
the lock nut at the rear.

Attaching the Propeller and Spinner
Attaching the Fuel Lines
Using medium silicone fuel tubing, attach the fuel tank’s
clunk line to the fuel nipple. This line will supply fuel to
the engine. Attach the vent line to the muffler pressure
nipple. This line pressurizes the fuel tank with the muffler
pressure, creating consistent fuel flow, regardless of the
airplane’s attitude.

Securely tighten the prop nut using an adjustable wrench.
Starting the Evolution Engine
Fuel
The Evolution engine comes baseline adjusted from the
factory. We recommend using high quality Cool Power
Omega or Power Master fuels containing 5 to 10% Nitro.
The Evolution engine has been test run using these fuels.
If another brand of fuel is used, it may be necessary to
slightly adjust the needle valves to compensate for the
differences in fuel.
Glow Plug
If you are using an aftermarket spinner nut, install the
propeller, the prop washer and then the prop nut in that
order (see photo). Securely tighten the prop nut using
whatever is most suitable to tighten the spinner nut (if
you are using one). In the photo above we are using a
spinner nut only.
The Evolution engine comes with a specially designed
“Super Plug”. The plug’s unique shape directs incoming
fuel/air mixture away from the plug element. When
replacing the plug, be sure to replace it with another
Evolution 2-4 stroke Super Plug (EVOGP1).
Starting the Engine
Step 1.Fill the tank with the above-mentioned 5 or
10% fuel.
Step 2.Reattach the fuel lines, making sure the vent
and clunk line are attached to the fuel nipple
and the muffler pressure nipple.
Caution: Do not attach the glow driver yet.
Step 3.Place your thumb over the venturi and flip the
4
prop counter-clockwise through 6 -10 complete
revolutions, thus priming the engine. Have a
helper hold your airplane.
Step 4. Attach the glow driver.
Step 5.Turn the engine over using an electric starter.
The engine should fire within seconds of applying
the starter.
Step 6.Remove the glow driver.
Step 7. Allow the engine to run for 30 seconds. And then
adjust the needle valve for your desired ground rpm. We
suggest you set the needle valve so the engine is running
at a fast 4-cycle if you are using the engine for stunt and
sport applications.
SetRight Needle Valves
The design of the SetRight needle valve system is such
that, during normal operating conditions, the typical user
will find that the normal range of adjustment allowed by
the system is more than adequate for most situations.
As a matter of fact, we intended this to be used as a
tool to identify operating problems. If you find that the
range of adjustment allowed by the SetRight needle is
inadequate after your initial period of running, then a
problem in your engine system has occurred. This might
be a bad glow plug, dirty or old fuel, an air leak in the
fuel system somewhere or any number of other reasons.
Do not make any permanent adjustment range changes
to the SetRight needle system if it was once working
correctly for you and now does not. Investigate other
problems first.
However, occasionally due to atmospheric, altitudinal
or fuel conditions, you may find that the range of
adjustment built into the SetRight needle valve system
is inadequate for your needs. These conditions are rare
and easy to fix.
Needle Limiters
In most conditions: With changes in flying field
altitudes, changes in temperatures, etc., it will be
necessary to adjust the needle valve. The needle
has a limiter to restrict the movement to just under
one full needle turn, more than enough range for
most conditions.
If your engine starts from the above procedure, but won’t
reliably continue to run with the glow driver removed,
follow the steps above right.
SetRight Needle Valve Correction
Should the SetRight needle valve need to be
adjusted outside of the factory-established
parameters, simply pull out the detent spring on
the high-speed needle assembly and move the
needle valve in the desired direction so the SetRight
pin passes the spring detent. You now have
re-established a new range for your purposes.
Note: We have found that if you rotate the blue
collar that locks down the needle clip so that the
setscrew is located adjacent to the actual clip
itself, this will easily increase the tension on the
needle clip and hold the needle in place more
securely.
Note: We have found that the best rpm to start with for
this engine is to set the needle so the ground rpm is
9200 - 9500. This will provide a solid 4-stroking style
run with a 2-4 break when needed. Pick the appropriate
prop to match the application and airplane. A 4-5 pitch
prop at these rpms will yield a 5.2-5.4 second lap time
on 60- to 62-foot lines. We recommend as a starting
point the mid-sized venturi .236 in (6mm) and an 11 x 4
to 11 x 5 two-blade propeller.

Why would fuel go “bad”?
The largest portion of the fuel is methanol (alcohol).
Methanol is hygroscopic; it attracts moisture. This can
cause your fuel to be contaminated with water, which will
cause poor engine performance. Additionally, the UV rays
in sunlight will eventually break down the nitromethane if
the fuel jug is stored in sunlight for long periods of time.
How can you tell when your fuel has gone “bad”?
The first indications will generally be the inability to start
the engines at previously run needle-valve settings.
Another clue might be that the engine has very poor idle,
runs but bogs down tremendously during run up and/or
will not attain the same rpms that you are used to.
How do I keep my fuel fresh?
If you have the opportunity, look for someone at a flying
field on a sunny day who has a jug of fuel that is only
1/4 full. What you may notice is that there are droplets
attached to the top and sides of the container. This is
the moisture in the air that is condensing inside the jug
because of the greenhouse effect of the semi-translucent
plastic jug. The only way to overcome the greenhouse
effect is to store your fuel in a metal can.
You can also combat the effects of the moisture in the air
by squeezing all the extra air from your fuel container at
the end of the day or transferring your fuel into smaller
containers as the level of the fuel is reduced in your
gallon jug. Many pilots will invest in 1/2 gallon or quartsize containers and only bring that amount of fuel to the
field on any given day. This allows their main supply of
fuel to stay at home in a controlled storage environment,
virtually ensuring problem-free fuel.

How to tell if your glow plug is bad
The glow plugs on the market today are designed
to provide good service to the user and may last a long
time or a short time, all dependent upon the way you
choose to operate your engine.
Physical indications that you might need to change the
glow plug are:
1. Twisted or mangled glow plug element (usually
caused by too high a compression ratio).
2. Small “bumps” are attached to the glow plug
element. This will generally be most noticeable
during the break-in process. These are actually
tiny pieces of aluminum that have attached to the
element and will severely hinder the operation of
the glow plug.
3. The glow plug element is no longer shiny but is dull,
almost a white powder color. (This just comes with
age and is a by-product of the catalytic reaction.
The shinier the wire, the better the catalytic reaction
can be.)
Operating indications that you need to change your
glow plug are:
1. The glow element will not light with a charged glow
igniter. This indicates that there is a physical short
or breakage in the element wire itself.
2. Glow plug lights but the engine will not continue
running once the battery is disconnected. (This is
usually an indication of the microscopic particles
we discussed earlier.)
3. Glow plug lights, engine runs but there is a
perceptible loss of rpm at full throttle when the
battery is disconnected. This is a typical indication
that the white powder residue is building to the
point that the catalytic reaction of the glow plug is
no longer anywhere close to being optimum.

it will no longer fire. This gets all the fuel out of
the engine.
At the end of every flying session, several drops (about
10) of after-run oil (Evolution Engine's Blue Block Rust
Inhibitor) should be applied into the venturi and the
engine should be flipped over for a few seconds with the
starter. This will prevent rust and corrosion.
