....without baring the details, a bit more info on when, where, whom may narrow the window and improve results? Hope you get the culprit - this is really not on, probably want to use it for a buggy build or so?

Gent's,

Bit difficult to publicly disclose the detail at this stage but the area is around the northern Free State. Engine is surely being used in a gyro or experimental aircraft.
