Some years ago my Dad, brother, and I were helping an old fella get his 10hp Famous going for the first time. We got it started and tuned up for him but sometime later he said he couldn't get it started again. Dad told him he needed to use his secret weapon. The guy says "That battery and coil trick you showed me?" Dad says no, two 20 year old kids to crank it over.
