    3.3 not run for a long time.

    Ok I got this Revo 3.3 and it has been sitting up for about a year. Carb was gum'd up and got that cleaned. Now will just running it help clean out any old gummed up fuel in the motor or will I need to take it out and apart for a real cleani
    ng ?

    Best thing is to clean the engine--start with a clean slate.

    If it is not bent or deformed. If you have a question about it then replace it, it is not that expensive.

    No. If you want an air leak, horrible running engine with high temps then leave it out.
