Today I got the new starter for the M18 I got at the show.

Now to put it on and see what condition the engine is in. First off will be checking spark and compression. Then add a spritz of fuel to the mix to see if it will fire.

Since the PO had pulled the heads to check in there, I will make sure they are torqued right for now. If it runs  good, then I will be ordering the new head gaskets!

It Lives!  Poured some fuel down the carb and she fired off! Didn't run long as I don't have a tank hooked to it, yet!

I was at Harbor Frieght and found on of these. It will make moving the engine around easier. I hope to put it on there today. Have another part I want to put in between, so pics will be taken.
