No sealant on gasket EVER!!
Clean surface and make sure no bumps or burrs. nice and flat.
It is confusing for sure!
If it was yours and your ordering a new prop what would you get? Short or long
Thanks for the p/v information.
Sorry about delay in replying. I wasn't able to re-start the engine so I took carb' off and left it with a repair shop for overhaul and check-over.
Should I oil the cylinders before anymore testing ? It has been sitting dry for 2 years or sure. I would have to service the fuel system to get fuel
Thank you dockside and faztbullet for the warning. I WILL keep testing before I throw any more money at it.
