Not sure if this is the right place to post happy for this to be moved. I am about to get started on a fix up of the old girl, has't been run for over 15 years, so today I ZedStart.mp4 took off the rocker cover and was pleasantly surprised how clean it was there even was a small amount of oil on the cam shaft. Using a borescope in each cylinder I couldn't see any corrosion I could even see the hone marks from when it was rebuilt previously. Anyway i poured some new oil over the cam, removed the spark plugs and gave each cylinder a small squirt of oil. spun the engine over by hand, then on the starter with no plugs installed. Re-installed the spark plugs, poured some fuel into each carb. Turned the key an she fired straight up. before i put her in storage i drained the oil and put in fresh oil and new filter, drained the radiator and i think i put a little bit of oil in each cylinder.
