Thanks for the advice!
First hello from "Meffa". Medford , Mass LOL
I like the mini starters and agree that it is a good idea.
The only question I have is what is the timing set at?
If the timing is too far advanced it gets hard to crank especially when hot.
Just something to check.
Perhaps I'll see you at a cruise night
