Hi everyone,



i have started pulling the fantom down and cleaning it, getting ready
for the arrival of the new bits and pieces from Fantom and I noticed
this.







The LSN seems to be sitting way to close to the spay bar. I checked my
S25 there is about a 1.5 - 2 mm gap between the LSN and the spar bar.



Does this seem odd to anyone else ?



In the picture the LSN is set to factory settings. If I am right then
this would explain why my truck was running lean but staying cool, a
ean idle mixture BUT being cooled by the HSN.

Dan, have they told you the replacement bit are on the way?


It would be interesting to check what the gap is on other Fantom engines, just for a comparison.

OK, ive checked mine and found the same thing. I have been running the fantom LSN at 4.5 turns out. At this point the lsn is still in the spray bar as yours is dan. Interesting
. Even with the needle completly unscrewed the tip is still in the spray bar. I would say the hole in the spray bar is mush wider in the fantom than in other engines.
