Re: Weird! "Brand New" motor kit smells like gas!
My motor was run and it stank of gas when I got it. Old gas as the mfg date was 2 years before the ship date. The plug and the piston top were black and oily, the bore was beautiful and the carb and exhaust were unused and brand new.
It appeared that the motor was factory run in a test stand.
The only thing in my garage with 4 wheels is the lawnmower
