Well, after sitting with Marvel Mytery oil in the cylinder for almost 2 weeks, the rings broke loose! :) For the first time in 38 years, she turned!

Threw a compression gauge on it and kicked her a few times. 145 lbs.

I think she's a runner folks!

Next order of bidnes: Check points, put 6v coil on, get intake manifold and go through the carb, change oil.

Uh Oh

The shoe has dropped....maybe. Need to figure out how i'm going to go about this...went to pull the carb off and just as I start to turn the nut, two pieces fall off the head....Me thinks i'm starting to see why it was parked.

That can be fixed... I have no idea how much it would cost, but it can be welded up. Or you can start the search for a new head. They're out there.

This morning I had a "momment of clarity" and realized that a friend I race with has a welding business. Sometimes I scare myself.

BTW, what spark plug do these take? It has an old British KLG plug right now.
