Greetings forum.

I want to express my gratitude to any and all who supported the efforts of Mr 944_Jim getting a test/learning engine to me. I'm attaching a link for my 8 min video on a new YT Channel. Again, thanks for the coaching. To the experienced please forgive the fumbling around as I pondered and fiddled to get this little gem running. Still much more to learn.

WooHoo! Good for you.
Get seven or more tanks through it, and then close the needle 1/2 turn. Then try to start it without the spring. You'll be sneaking up on the needle as you prime and flip.
Once you can finger-start this one at will, move on to the car.

That's a good start to the New Year!

Nice going fella’s…. You’ll get used to the little sounds the engine makes when trying to start and when running to hint what to do….Intuition will take over after a little practice….I’ve got one of those cool little glow clips too and use it often Very Happy
