Re: bought a replacement engine and it wont start.
if the engine is flooded it will cause the plug to be very wet with fuel after you whirl it over while trying to start it, if plug is basiclly dry it isnt flooded.
Like I mentioned before, if you have fuel, spark, air intake and compression that engine will run unless it's out of time or as you mentioned possibly flooded.
not sure what else to tell ya on this.
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
