Default Re: new motor will not start at all

I second the 32 to 1 mix. It gets into a long discussion but the short of it is sometimes these just won't make enough compression to start new and a more volatile yet safe mix can help get it fired up the first time so the rings can start to seat. My trick is where I build there is a 6 story parking garage across the street with a big elevator. I go to the top floor and get going over 20, drop the clutch and spin the heckler out of it. I have had 2 or 3 that were stubborn and that helped them light up. I assemble all my motors now and don't have those issues but a few I got assembled out of the box did.
