Well, after some prompting, it did start, but barely ran. Never even got up to idle speed. It just kind of puttered. If I touched the gas, it died. If I moved the choke, it died. I guess I have some tweaking to do to the fuel delivery. Anybody else have any good ideas? The good thing is, I didn't hear any strange noises, no rattles or ticking at all. Nice and quiet. The bozos who replated my clutch cover for me, though, wiped out any threads that were in the holes on the inside of the cover that the silencer mounts to. My guess is they sandblasted them away. So, I had to drill all of them out and helicoil them. One of those "unforseen situations". But, it DID run a little, so I feel a little good about it.
