Phooy, went to try to start the engine and it wouldn't crank. Took a look at the carb and noticed the gasket was still wet, on a whim I looked down the carb into the intake and saw fuel sitting there in a puddle. Pulled the spake plugs and had fuel flow out. So lesson learned the float is still not adjusted correctly and I have since moved the gas can so it sits above the pump but below the carb to prevent another time bomb scenario. Sigh o the joys of working with old equipment.

Why bring a gun to a knife fight when you can bring a howitzer?

MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA SHE LIVES!!!!!!! https://youtu.be/GxkhYjc0XhI

After much gnashing of teeth, a rebuilt carb that didn't work, and a variety of other issues, my self and a garage mechanic finally got her to run. Down side is there is no power generation occuring so I may use this as a reason to pull the trigger and convert everything to 12 Volts.

Congratulations.

Did you polarize the voltage-regulator/generator?

- If you have to stomp on your foot-pedal starter, either you, or your starter, or your engine, has a problem.
- The 216 and early 235 engine are not "splash oilers" - this is a splash oiler.
