Type in the URL of the video, but put a space in the https, like this: ht tps.

Then I'll fix the video for you.

We may have a little bit a language barrier interfering.

Like that. Are you on a computer or only a smart phone? I don't know whether that matters.

Yes fuel flow is good i removed fuel line and turned it over it squirted fuel with each puff of the engion. I also sprayed ether into carb when it was attached and directly into intake when carb was off and it did nothing not even a try.


I doubt very much if the doo-hickey has anything to do with your no-start issues. The engine did Not Stop Running with terrible noises, did it? Is the engine oil Full or so far below the oil window that leaning far Right the oil still can't be seen?

Oil is good. No horrible noises to report just stoped havving power and sounded like i was trying to bump start it at 50 mph.


Carb off is as Wide open as one can get, yes you can measure engine compression with the carb off.

Do you have access to compessed air?

I can would this be the same test as a compression test i plan on renting a comp tester wednesday

One could braze or solder an air fitting to a gutted spark plug body & screw it into the plug hole. Then with regulated air pressure applied, rotate the engine towards compression stroke. Dis-connect air & turn engine to TDC. Re-connect air & listen/feel for massive air leakage.

QUOTE this response & type your replies below my questions.
I missed his answers the first time around.

Rideorfly's answers still do not appear on my page 1. Odd.

An air leakage test is not the same as an Accurate cold cranking compression test, but can be very useful to determine Why a compression test gives low readings.

One can actually start a runable engine with the carb removed with a Visine type squeeze bottle full of gas.
