Got this engine for, wait for it, FREE! Previous owner said it didn't run and said I could just take it. Got it home, checked it over and decided to tear into it. Tank was rusted and the fuel, well wouldn't exactly call it that anymore, was like tar. Took the carb apart and soaked it in carb cleaner, cleaned every orifice, needles, etc, and put it back together. Changed the oil. The tank was so bad I did some old school water and sand inside and shook it for 15mins. Got it like new. Cleaned the petcock and installed the tank again with new fuel line to carb.
Decided it was time to start it. Pull it over a couple times and no go. Realized the choke wasn't on! Set choke and guess what? 1st pull and it fired up for a couple seconds, albeit some blue smoke. Got it running for a couple of mins and all good, carb settings are perfect and it starts and runs like a champ.

Not bad for an engine that hasn't run in over a decade and is a 1979!:fing32:
Now, where to use it?
