Default RE: Old engine start

Oh Boy... this is one of those easy to answer but hard to say things...[]

First Off, I hope you didn't spend too much on this engine.
The chances are that the seals have dried out and cracked and there is the possibility that the bearings have rusted up - if so - you are in for some rebuilding. [:'(]

BUT!

Let's not worry about that just now, I'd just pull the glow plug and flush the engine with fuel. Put the pLug back in and see how it goes from there.

Tuning - screw the needle valve fully in and then back it out four turns (general setting) and tweek as required. [8D]

Think positive! You may just have a diamond in the rough!!
