Didn't know of the engine would run, well now I know.....

Did some paint recovery (commandant no. 3) yesterday and at some rare places it even starts to shine 8-) 8-) 8-) 8-) 8-) 8-)
and today I wanted to know if the engine runs....

1. old oil out, new oil in.... it doesn't haven an oilfilter it's that old, so every 3000 miles an oilchange......

2. put the sparkplugs out.

3. let the starter engine run for a while, sounded good and good rpm range, sofar it was promising.

4. wires back to the coil and the sparkplug holded against ground....
starting the engine and yes "Houston we have ignition)

Sparkplugs in again.

Some petrol down the carb and 1 try it wants to fire...

Put some petrol at a spounce and try again... it run for a moment...

but still no petrol by the petrol pump..

5. bypass with a hose to a canister of petrol, suck and hevel system straight to the carburetor

Start the engine and yes it runs......let it run for about 30 seconds and then suddenly the Original petrol pumps works again....

Mision completed within an hour....... engine runs smooth....


Video.....
