  • THE TIME I AM ONLINE, 7 days a week normally online around midday and then late evening until early morning.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website normally after my first reply. I complete calls where I feel it is a benefit.
  • UPLOADED LINKS I SEND, if I upload dropbox links, they will open on a home PC, often they fail on a work PC, on a phone use the box on the top right of your phone screen for direct download.

If you have spark then it should start using ether.

Have you checked to see if its flooded?

Do you know the fuel pressure?

Have you verified injector pulse?

Have you pulled a plug to see the color on the tip?
