Tell us that you changed the oil filter !!!!!
You should do a couple of oil changes with filters when you get it running. Run for several minutes and dump the oil. Smell the oil. After the first change, the oil change intervals are your call.
i did yes! when i changed the oil i did everything so there are new spark plugs and a new filter on the beast.
on another note i was able to hear it run for the first time in a month just now! ive never heard a sweeter sound in all of my life. there is another problem though. it dies slowly after a few seconds at idle. i think it had this problem every now and then during the one day i had it running before this whole ordeal. i havent done any research yet on what it might be. just thought id update here first and then dig through the forums. thanks guys! this is awesome!
edit: i should also add that the reason its now running is that i temporarily ran some 16 gauge wire parallel to the wire from the battery to the starter. this obviously wont last for long. just until i figure out what gauge wire i should use. anybody know?
