Embarrassed that it had sat, but I had no time to get it right after the wheel debacle.

We had to meet with our realtor here at 2:30, but this morning I got the old oil and plugs out, squirted a bit of oil into each plug hole and turned the crank by hand a few times. Fresh gas, reinstall plugs and should be good tomorrow.

My only iffy bit is what the altitude will be like with the carbs. I set them for sea level maybe 500 miles ago, and the tool I need to adjust them is packed up in a POD unit, and I won’t have access until 6/24.

If it’s sitting again until then, nbd, but I am more than a little anxious to spin it up to Taos or Madrid
