Nice when a plan comes together!

I've had the same experience here. I ran the Toohotsue in October until she burned off the fuel in the carb, then fogged the cylinders and refitted the plugs. I put her in the barrel this week and primed with fresh fuel. I expected a swearing session but no - first pull and Vroom - lotsa smoke mind!
