Re: Hand starting an atomic 4
Wow, cool. Marry her and treat her real good, or we will all personally kill you ;-)
This brings back some good A4 memories from the days when this was the engine in *every* boat.
Also reminds me of my '66 Peugeot 404, which did have a crank handle, and a balky starter. Also a stripped transmission linkage, so for a while I had only second, neutral, and third (out of "four on the tree").
Old guys (meaning the age I am now) would get all misty watching me crank her over. Had they known I had only 2 gears, they'd have realized I had the modern reincarnation of their Model Ts.
