This weather is really too nice to not be in something aircooled.

Actually I was on the bike for the hot weather. 82 miles Saturday and 47 miles Sunday. It wasn't until 5:00pm that i decided to take the car out.

Decided to finally fire it up. Once it got oil pressure, it started and runs great. Checked all the lights and everything seems to be working.

Still have a problem with restarting after it sits for a short time. I thinks it's the carbs.

Maybe the problem is by now you are running on 100 % fuel stabilizer. :shock:
I'm not an air cooled snob , I like them all !

Glenn, Bring a fuel sample to the next meeting and we will send it out for analysis.

I'll slip some into your thermos and see if you can tell the difference.
