Well I took the advice and did a little bit of a tune up, changed the plug with
proper gap, full choke, half throttle and voila!!!!! Kick started right away and
runs like a champ!!!! It is a beauty and way too cool!!! thanks for the suggestions
. Greatly appreciated!!! Lb

My recently sold 63 was finicky too....even with remagnetized magneto...carb
settings were touchy...but first check spark when kicking by removing plug,
clamp outside of plug to ground on head...dark place works best to see
spark...clean plug before...any soot and/or oil from kicking screws up spark.

In general if IT Doesn't start I give it a tune-up. even if IT runs fine once started.
This works on lawnmowers, pressure-washers, cars, and my 48S. Well at least a
tuneup helps, but some parts come broken from the factory so always consider
"broken from the factory" a possibility.

The pacer I picked up won't kick start but will bump start and runs great. The
kick starter has full range of motion and turns the engine over freely. Any
suggestions? I am new to these lil beauties so your experience/advice will be
appreciated. Cheers lb
