Ours hadn't run for 2 or 3 years, but some fresh gasoline on the old and it started right up. Mind you a little smokey at first and that old gas is a lot smelly. One little secret that a buddy in Ohio told me about, prime it with a little gasoline in the breather casting, don't have to crank it over nearly as many turns for it to take off.

Brian, Why don't you post a youtube video of starting your ABENAQUE. So people can see a running one and I can learn how to start it. Also thanks for the tip on the ignitor. ( And you thought I wasn't paying attention.)

I had several collectors the last two days stopping over to see the ABENAQUE along with my other engines. Thanks for stopping & visiting for hours. Enjoyed your company & stories. Hope it was entertaining for you as it was for me.
