Post by bohdan »



Greetings Gents,

What AZgl1800 says. And it is a real pain. Even after the carbs are removed.

Oh wonderful. I guess I just have to pull and tug. With my luck. I will probably break the mat. Thx

I tried to start it by orienting the 3 holes, 2 for the carb throats and 1 to the front and left of the carbs. I believe for the thermostat housing. It never really seems like it is exactly right :x
