Thanks for the feedback.

COVID has meant over 200 days of lockdown here in Victoria, Australia. Hard to afford parts due to loss of income, but easy to connect with people like you that want to lend a virtual hand.

My remaining tests-to-start will be:
1 - Re-test pre-heating engine to 200F / 96 C
2 - Source O.S. A5 glowplug instead of A3
3 - Get another fuel to rule in/out
4 - Re-Calibrate the carby
