Preflight/Lube/Gas-Up
Review emergency shutdown proceedures in my head.
Open main fuel valve.
Push in on the movable igniter contact several times..This "scrubs" the
contacts.
Open mixer needle valve one quarter turn, close choke (This is for the old
mixer w/air shutter).
Open cc oiler, adjust drip rate. I've got mine dripping once every ten
seconds.  New rings.
Postion spark advance on Webster bracket to the right hand position.(START)
Pull thru several times until mixer is flooded, close mixer needle valve.
Pull thru until engine hits once, quickly open air shutter (just a little)
and needle valve 1/4 turn.
If it hits the second time, you will find yourself smiling.
Move spark advance to the left (run) position.
Adjust air/fuel mixture until exhaust is clear and running nicely..lot's of
miss.
After I'm happy that it's running nice..I then add water to the hopper.

Preheating the mixer/head and using hot water in the hopper is permitted if
you weigh in excess of 250 lbs. or you're "Packin'."  This really helps to
vaporize the fuel.

To Stop..shut off fuel. Now I don't drain the hopper until water temp. cools
down to approx. ambient.  Just a personal thing as I fear hot spots might
develop in head, cyl. piston....open to discusssion.

Go out next day and wipe up the oily mess...forgot to turn that damn oiler
off again:-)

Damn, this is FUN!!
