Whew...dang I'm sweating and its the middle of December.
Since I lived to to see another southern day in December, will tell what happened last night.
Cleaned up the OB, and decided to see if it would even fire.
I knew was free to rotate, just had not tried to start it yet.
Hooked up the cables and squirted a shot of either into carb...
Hot dang its alive!
For a couple of power bursts, then off.
Well...lets hook up the gas!
Pump pump pump on the primer bulb...dang its never going to fill that carb up.
Must be flooding,
Let me pull the plugs and see...
Yep...fuel pouring out the bottom plug.
Drain it all out, blow it out with air, spin it over by hand a few times...
OK that should do it,
Now crank it with power to really blow it out, (plugs still out)
Wow! Flame On !
Looked kinda cool for the first few seconds...
A 3' flame jetting out the bottom plug hole..neato! Jet Power!
OK, stopped cranking, but the flames did not...crap.
Puff puff...almost out...very light flames at this point,
On flame dropped down to the ground...
Disco dancing was back in style!
Got it out...but it was not easy...kinda like magnisum<sp...water was not doing a whole lot of good.
Had to flood it real good.
Was a mix of brake clearner, carb cleaner and gas.
Cleaned OB back off and put plugs back in,
Cranked right up....whew.
Bet neighbors were entertained.
