Best cure is a half decent load! ;-)
I know loading show engines, even a little, is a contentious subject and not always possible, but lets face it, that is what they were made to do. I like to hear a consistent low chug of a loaded engine, coming out of a longish pipe without a tin box on the end. Yes, I have run my engines unloaded in the past, but a load brings out the real sound of life from an engine. I tend to lean towards generators nowadays as they are easier to load. I have nothing against anyone who runs their engines unloaded and I realise that additional equipment takes up space and weight where another engine could be carried.
Just a personal thought!
Anyone else of the same persuation? Or do I stay in my bunker?
