After rebuilding the electrical parts to the distributor the other day and working on getting compression (several weeks), yesterday my tests showed good compression and strong spark for this early 1949 Willys Jeepster with the L head 134. The fuel tank is still out (needs sealing remember this Jeepster has been sitting in a shop for 40 years) so today I trickled a small amount of fuel into the carburetor and turned her over. She started right up and ran for about 3 to 4 seconds. I assume that was due to using up the little fuel that was in the carburetor. All the gauges work based on what little I can tell and all looks as it should, the oil level is up and looks clean. My question is do any of you engine experts have any advice for starting an engine that has been sitting for such a long time. Thanks.
