  1. When the engine is cold does it appear to be cranking at sufficient speed?
  2. When the engine is cold can you remove a plug wire, crank the engine and see if there is at least 1/2 inch of blue spark?
  3. What liter engine?
  4. When cold will it start at full throttle?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
