      So I know the ground from battery to chassis is this crusty, partially uninsulated, braided steel cable. Lol. I bought a nice sealed 4ga wire when I replaced the starter, so that will...

      Hey TBerk! So I hesitated on responding, just in case it friggin' died on me again. It's running decently though, but some problems still (summarized at the bottom).

      Hey TBerk,

      OH SNAP! Excellent point Tobias! I didn't even make the connection. The air filter did smell like fuel also, so maybe that's where it all came from. I did clean the venturi a bit, but not the...

      So, I changed the fuel filter, but it really didn't seem that dirty to me. There was a little bit of oil residue around the inlet fitting though. :shrug: Also replaced the ignition rotor. The old...
