    RE: Please help!

    Hello, I am going to assume this is a new motor. A couple of things to do. First trying heating the motor with a hair dryer or heat gun before you try to start the motor. Second try leaving the glow plug loose (1 turn back from tight) until you get it started, then tighten it up. Also check your manual for help. Let me know if you need more help.

    Do you have another plug you can try?? If you don't, I would tell you to buy a couple. Once you get the motor started with the glow plug loose, tighten the plug. Also if the motor gets tight(that's when it hits Top Dead Center also known as the PINCH Point) loosen the plug and rotate the flywheel so the piston is at the bottom. That will make starting it much easier.

    RE: Please help!

    Okay it started now, and i drove slowly on my yard. I saw smoke from glow plug, is it the after run oil? or something bad? ( i put after run oil)
    and btw i do not have a temp gun does the engine heating (Hair drier) overheat the engine?

    No the hair dryer does not hurt it. Do not use anymore after run oil until you are finished breaking it in. Smoke from the glow plug just means there was oil or fuel left on it. Have you been able to run a tank thru yet.

    Probably just the receiver pack. Yea, they can get a little frustrating. When it gets to that point, walk away. Go do something else for a while and come back later when your clear headed and not POed.
