Re: Hello from Chicago...got problems
RTV on the head and base gaskets is not such a good idea. The head and cylinder will seal with proper gaskets and the right amount of torque. I'm sure you're making sure the choke is open (lever down on the NT) after you get it warmed up?
Where at in Chicago? I'm in the far west suburbs. If we're close enough, maybe I can get out and lend a hand.
