I dont know how long you can let these engines idle for without air movement, but I personally would draw the line at 15 minutes
I keep a big fan in the garage that I put on it when I have the motor running, for example for carb synchronization.
As I recall, Hedge's attempts to get to the bottom of his issues with the motor involved multiple mechanics and more work, aggravation, and money than the motor was worth, although I think that he eventually got it fixed. Then he sold it.
