Well, the new toy fired right up, after the glass filter bowl filled with gas. For the brief running time, she sounded great! Shut her down quickly due to two gas leaks!! Didn’t need, but fire extinguisher was right next to me! Always is on any new start up. First leak was fuel filter glass bowl. Found that I had installed the rubber gasket on the wrong side of the filter. This hit me like “green side up” on a pallet of grass sod! The second leak is the fuel float/needle & seat not working properly, flooding gas out the top of the carb. Taking that apart today and solving the problem. Hope to run later today when I can set dwell, timing, choke and idle. FUN!!
