0300a been sitting

Postby Shippee123 » Mon Jul 15, 2013 12:08 am

I am trying to find out if there is a way to prime the oil system on a 0300a. It has been sitting and I didn't want to try to refire it dry and mess up any bearings. Thanks for any info.

Prime through the oil pressure fitting with a pump oil can. At least 1/2quart.

If the mags don't fire, take out the points and polish the contacts with a fine wire wheel.

I have one mag firing and one not, I have filed the contacts with a point file but still no luck with it.
