EGT probe location

Postby csracing » Fri Jun 23, 2017 4:47 pm

Quick sanity check. Going through the manual double checking some things on our new Mychron installation. The manual says the EGT thermocouple should be 5.9" from the exhaust port. The picture shows a 2 stroke installation and presumably measures 5.9" out from the port opening in the cylinder bore. Are you guys using ~6" from the face of the valve in our kind of installation or 6" from the mounting flange?

Thanks

Most (if not all) install it 2 inches from the header flange. Myself included.

If you place it else where, trying to get advise based off temps could be misleading as the numbers will change the further out you place it.

Thanks for the reply. I'll go with 2" for consistency's sake.
