Re: Why won't my 1915 engine start unless I tow (bump-start) the car.

Glad to hear it"s started and running but i can"t understand a lot of suction and dry spark plugs and with questionable valves? I wonder how dirty the engine is in the valve chamber? Needing that much advance to start,that sounds like a lot even on a mag start? Is the spark rod over or under the wat...

Re: Why won't my 1915 engine start unless I tow (bump-start) the car.

With a friend cranking hold your hand over the air inlet of the carb. You should get a strong suction.Just pulling the choke might not do so use your hand.Are your spark plugs wet with gas?? If not before you reinstall the plugs put a little gas in each cyl then replace the plugs and try it. :D Bud.
