I did not get the LGT165 to start,but it backfired once.I think it needs a new condser,will see what NAPA has Monday and try again,
Was pleasd with what I heard as it turned over.

Glad you have it trying to go. Did you try squirting a bit of fuel in the carb? Got a spark tester?

I do not have a gas tank so I was squirting gas in the carb to see if it would fire, it seemed to have fire to plug at first. The reason I think it needs a condser is appearence .this thing sat under a tree for 16 years. I was not told how long it had sat until it was on the trailer. Everything seems to be in good shape considering all that.

Is this an open side LGT or closed? Might be able to contact our sponsors for a fuel tank. Sitting that long, it could be a number of things, one being the ignition switch is loosing 'fire' to the coil while cranking.

A new condenser is probably a good idea, another thought is points gap. If it's opening too late or to early, it'll change your timing.

Just a thought, do these have a points plunger? If so, and it's been setting that long, maybe it's sticky?

Does have a plunger, Alan. Could be part of the problem. Points could need a cleaning/reset, also.

It is an open side. would be interested in sponser provided fuel yank.
