DA MONSTER GT
 
hey to the guys that own a real truck i just wanted to know what could be the reason its so hard to pull the pullie on my mgt. i mean the last couple of days i have went to start the truck and the pullie is hard as [email protected]#$ like its tied down to cement blocks or something. then i take the glow plug out and pull the pullie a couple of times put the glow plug back and it starts up. its like the last 2 or 3 days its done that. before it would turn on in two pulls. im running a .28 axial on the mgt. after every run i drop some after run oil in it.

How new is the motor? If it's new, it'll help to loosen the plug 1/4 turn to get it started, then tighten it up after it's running..

Your flooding your motor, dont prime it so much. Also when you pull it, just slowly pop the motor until you feel it kick, then give it a little harder yank and it will start right up.

the glow plug trick works very well too.
