Default Re: If Your New Motor Won't Start,

Tinker, good post. I would add that a cap means no more than a teaspoon or two and engine should be rotated slowly by hand with plug off before attempting a start.

During my builds, I take the head off the engine and I also put a little bit of oil in the crankcase so there is some oil already coating the bearings on its first start which is typically a little longer when new.
