    glow plug wire

    i tell you small finger are needed to get the wire back on the glow plug i took some tong looking things out of my sister makeup box to get it back on i hope she don't miss them . i think i may have fouled the plug .the plug looks new not gray or melted looking .it don't want to stay running .iv burned 1/2 gallon fuel so far . i have moved the main jet 1/8 turn to the lean and the idle is set 1/4 turn lean . how do you tell if its fouled ? and time to putt new one in Tuned pipes and glow plugs - updated 1/14/05 . not sure if foul but it is rich ! oh and the 2nd question the is the shift point adjuster i made a half turn to shift sooner just so it would shift .any one got a clue as to how many turns you get before it falls out and you gits to take it apart

    Nose plyers are the tool you need to put the plug wire into the plug. Almost impossible without them.

    and a backyard to bash it in.
