I guess I've had this machine for almost a year. This is another one that sat around for months after I bought it getting ignored. It didn't run. It did look really good. The deck wasn't cracked, and it wasn't all beat up. It still had most of its paint. But it clearly didn't run. When I first messed with it, it had no spark. So I replaced the coil and it had spark then. I put gas in it, and tried to start it. But it wouldn't stay running unless I primed it. Hmm. So it has been sitting around for a good six months, maybe more, getting ignored and in the way. I remembered it when I was running the IH 331 and it was doing the same thing, running if I fed it gas with the primer. Just for grins, I took it out, put some gas with SeaFoam in it in the tank, and fired it up. I had to primeit to keep it going, but then it got longer and longer in between primes. Eventually it would just sit there and run! So now finally one of my commercial bricks runs! I may take some pics of him, too!
