I recently got my 1886 running after it has been sitting for probably 10 years. Had it running for about 5 minutes and it ran nice and smooth with good power. Everything seemed good other then it seems to run hot.
I did the usual maintenance (oil, plugs, filters). The cooling fins of the engine are clean and clear, and all shrouds are in place. After 5 minutes I thought it was hotter then it should have been. I pulled the dip stick to check oil level and possibly gas in the crank case. The dip stick was to hot to hold for more then a minute.
The timing is set good, I can visually see timing mark with timing light in sight hole although not perfectly centered in hole darn close though.
What do I look at next?
