I NEED ENGINE STARTING HELP!!!!!!
O.K. guys and gals, here is how it goes.
I have been working diligently on our Dodge M-37 piecing the motor back together part by part.
I finally get everything installed to the motor such as starter, carb, plugs, wires, coil, fanbelt, etc.
I had to wait two weeks for the gas tank to be cleaned, so I finally get it back, installed, and some fuel in it.
Next I prime the fuel line all the way to the carb with the handy lever on the fuel pump.
Sit down and start cranking a little.
I check to see if I have a spark at the plugs and, ...................Nothing.
So, I check a few wires and I found out the wire from the coil to the ignition switch has been disconnected, so I re-connect it and whala, I have spark at the plugs.
Good I think to myself, so I install the plug and crank once again.
After cranking for a few minutes the motor starts making this popping sound and the next thing I know the dipstick has blown out of the motor and some white smoke is following it.
What have I done here????[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img]
