Hey dude. Here is what I think. The pilot frame is long allowing you for a long stroke, witch slows things down. Thinks that you can do is close out that big gap. Your machine will be faster but have a shorter stroke. I hope that helps. I have a Soba pilot liner, I love it my runs around 98, 50% at 6.5 loaded.

u pass single lines with the machine this low? i wish i could show u a flic how i set mine i think is the same way u are talking about i put the ameture bar closer to the back mount of the frame closing up the back gap of the spring thanks allot bro i taught something was wrong with my set up when my machine died down that low ..basically the loaded reading dont mean that much. the unloaded does huh.. thanks

Hey dude. Yes my a bar is set up very close to the spring shelf, what I was talking about was the gap between the a bar and front coil. The smaller the gap the less distance the a bar has to travel = the faster your machine will run :)
Yes I can pull nice single pass lines with 9t just fine. Turn your contact screw down a turn, and slow your hand monument down a little its not a high speed machine.
As far as numbers go, I always look at the machine shit when its loaded, it changes depending on needle size.
cheers dude

Yeah dude, it all matters, length, bend, angle. Play around with it and see for yourself. I love tuning my machines, its relaxing. I think the angle of my front spring is less then 15 and more then 10.
