I didn't get back to work on Babe today, will try tomorrow. Meanwhile, after charging I disconnected the charger and the the battery cranked the engine strongly. Yes, for a full year the battery was disconnected but not on any charge. I haven't yet looked at the electrolyte but will do. The sediment bulb remained clear after I drained the tank, and initially the flow was slight to nil but afterI put in approx. 2 gallons (which I recall reading by someone on the Forum (Bruce?)is the minimum to get a good flow to the carb, and that did work. Here in coastal Maine the winter temps may not get quite as low as in Michigan but below freezing is common and last winter was the coldest winter in 10 years. I'll pull the plugs again, and expect that as usual with Babe her plugs may will again be heavily "carbonated" from running rich, although she only ran 15 min. or so.(I never seem to have been able to counter act that.)
Question: If 6.03v is only a 25% charge, what is the desired rating??
BRUCE: TIM says the AL 216 is in fact the same as the 437. Agreed?
Thanks all, I'll report back ASAP.
