A guy at my field has a 1/3rd Stearman with a 7 Cylinder Gas Radial RCS or Moki. One day they were flipping and flipping and flipping that big Radial, nothing happened. I flipped it as well, I told them I'll be right back. I jumped into my truck and ran over to the closest AutoZone grabbed some Prestone Starting fluid, gave that sucker a shot in the general area of the intake and that sucker fired right up. I told him to keep the can and he uses it whenever the Radial gets stubborn....

I picked up some new gas motors recently and you can bet I'll have a can in my field box....
