Take the plug out of the motor and hook it up to your ignitor and see if it glows...

I usually leave the ignitor hooked up for about 20-30 seconds or so after it starts to help it warm up...

Even though the temptation will be extremely overwhelming...DO NOT start ripping around and hammering on it immediately...go easy on it at first and do the break in properly!

EXCELLENT...congrats!

Just remember to resist the temptation to jam on it until you have thoroughly broken it in and keep a close eye on the temperature...

Good luck...have fun and keep us posted![8D]
