Try 10% throttle and FULL rich mixture ( digital infowondow reading is 0% !!)

Sorry for continuing with the stupid questions but progress is reaaaaly slow
Solved the problem of the engine startup, it was because I flying with little fuel in order to ensure take off but both fuel cocks' first setting was switching to the (empty) outer tanks...

OK, first problem solved, second was quick to come:
In front of me at the cockpit I see the Oil Temp gauges.
I have to wait for the oil temp to reach 60°C in order to have proper rpm response from the motors (otherwise the rpm needles tend to "yo-yo" up and down).
where is the engine temperature (air cooled engine) Does it play any role?
What is the RPM limit for the engines?
My problem is that after takeoff, I get very quickly a grosvenor failure and afterwards things take their downturn...

Engine temps are behind your right shoulder above the fuel cocks. I find engine temp is critical in the Blenheim, keep it above 200 and below 275. Max rpm I don't know but I try not to go above 2500ish.

Does Blenheim have the one-stage compressor modelled at all?
Seems impossible now to climb above 5-6k feet now.

Compared to Accu-sims P-47, the Cod engines are not any near realistic at temperatures.
Can even make a runway takeoff (no taxiing), without using cowlings.

Actually, taking off with the cowl flaps closed is recommended in the pilot's notes for the Blenheim Mk.IV, they are supposed to be effective enough in terms of airflow getting through the engine once you start moving.

I'm sorry for pushing this back guys (i've been spending some time on other real life stuff lately and other aspects of the sim), i will try to finalize my copying of the relevant manual pieces and post it here sometime within the next couple of weeks

AFAIK the Engine head temperatures (asuming engine temps are sylinder head temps), arent they also depending on fuel mix, and not just airflow/rpm?
Is it modelled in this game/sim?
Shouldn't setting correct mix, also increase rpm slightly, like in RoF?

AFAIK it has only auto rich and auto lean mixture setting...

The P-47 has, not sure the Blenheim has, was just using the P-47 as reference, because it too has a aircooled radial engine.
