    I have read a lot of threads and posts and it seems to me that it would be helpful to have one thread that defines all the different terms used.
    Such as :
    HT engine
    NT carb
    4 stroking

    Any help in defining terms would be appreciated and, of course, any other terms in need of defining are welcome.

    If this has been covered elsewhere, I can't find it, so please point me in that direction.

    don't forget :
    w.o.t. (wide open throttle).
    t.d.c. (top dead center, when the piston is at the very top of the stroke)
    b.d.c. (bottom dead center, when the piston is at the very bottom of the stroke)
    rich (more fuel than air in the mixture)
    lean ( more air than fuel in the mixture)
    don't get the oil-fuel ratio mixed up with the air-fuel ratio mixture because they are 2 different things.

    I was just answering his questions, but you are right. Funny how we take those abbreviations for granted when we know them.
