Newly rebuilt starter in place, and for the first time in 12 years there was fire in the cylinders... Now it may be 180 degrees out of time because all it does is backfire as soon as you hit the switch. But.. I have fire for the first time. Woohoo

Re: Everything Marinette

Someone needs to find a way to take all of fastjeff's post and make a searchable thread for themselves lol.
