The Walbro pulse comes from the tapping which normally pressurises the fuel tank ... on that dreadful YS pressurised system.

I've run a couple of diesel four-strokes, and they both seem similar to the Laser, in terms of handling.

"Muslims never condemn terrorism."

"Hey, this Muslim IS condemning terrorism."
