Default RE: Old engine start

You'd probably better pull that tank out and at least clean it and install new fuel lines on the clunk and feed.

Take the glow plug out and flush out the MMO and feel for any roughness in the bearings...if they feel and sound o.k. then it should be good to go. It might be better to take the engine off the plane and remove the backplate and have a look inside just in case to check for rust.

The carb might have some congealed oil in it...try blowing through the fuel line attached to the carb. nipple to see if the passage is clear.

That ought to get you close.

Edit: LOL...Rodney beat me to it
