Hutch, did you dislodge a vacuum line in the process? A big air leak will sure make it tough to start. Ditto if you knocked the choke linkage loose or something similar.


I smile a lot. It makes people wonder what I'm up to...

Is it turning over, but won't start? I did that a couple of years ago. I put too much oil on mines, and it restricted the air flow. I replaced it with a dry filter and it started. I'm no longer a big fan of the oiled element filters.
