very interesting, hard to believe that water would do that, i did this at about 65 mph on a freeway during christmas break driving from Ft Hood to Beaumont Texas on a rainy night, was coming up on a little hill on the lane near the center divider as i came over it at 65-70 we saw black on the floor and then the loud crash of water on the inner fenders, i was like OH F*** and got ready to hydo or smack into the wall or a car, but nothing happened, only damage was a new set of briefs.

Before starting with the hand crank, the spark has to be manually retarded or the engine might "kick back". Cup the crank handle in the palm, rather than grabbing with the thumb under the top of the handle, so that if the engine does kick back, the rapid reverse motion of the crank will throw the hand away from the handle, rather than violently twisting the wrist or breaking the thumb. The choke is operated by a wire emerging from the bottom of the radiator where it can be operated with the left hand. This is used to prime the engine.
Crank the engine slowly, then start the engine with the left hand with a rapid pull of the crank handle. Should get 'er goin.


.....oh sorry, this thread is so old that I referenced a method for starting a rig from a couple model years ago...

With a few of these threads... got it.


But this seems to be normal. That's not reassuring.

Hey man. Sorry, I've made NO progress on converting that trailer into a camp trailer. I kinda switched gears and focused on the cube van conversion. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f104/...thread-935587/ I'll get back into it at some point, but if I start on any more projects at present I think I may end up living out of the van full time.
