engine had run for about 2 h, just for the set up, non road, i've cleaned doing my best all tunnels, holes everithing in the engine blowing with compressed air, and solvent, engine was perfect at the assembly, coated all bearings with specific lube, checked all the clearances , they were fine...

i'm so frustrated.
