Re: Hard to Start

An update. A friend suggested some starting fluid (and yes, I know all the stories about too much so am VERY careful). I give it a split-second snort and it starts on the first lick every time. Maybe there's other things I will probably need to do over the winter (Clean carb, etc) but for now, I get to SAIL so am carefully using this option.

BTW-once it starts, runs beautifully after the Indigo upgrade.

Thanks for all your good advice.
