25 year start up
« on: July 29, 2017, 09:19:11 PM »
I got my engine broke loose after 25 years of sitting and now it's time to start her up. Going to change the oil and replace my plugs but there's a lot of rust in the radiator, is there any thing i can put in the radiator to clean the rust and flush it out?

Got my T/A started, actually sounds pretty good after not being cranked for 25 years. good oil pressure, have to rebuild the carb.
