Default Re: Engine wont turn now

When I built my cruiser, it was a bit like that.. without the plug the motor would turn and I could smell fuel puffing out of the plug hole, but with the plug in and tight it fought against turning over. Fortunately I live on a hillside, so I walked it up to the end of the lane behind the house, pointed it down hill and started rolling. Left a couple of skid marks on the hill from the first two tries, but turned over and fired right up on the third try where the ground levels out behind the house.


Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
