Oil injection problems?

I have a 93 jag 440. I went to start it for the first time this year, I pulled the plugs and put a gas/oil mix down the jugs and pulled it over to coat the cylinders etc. I put the plugs back in and put in fresh gas. After pulling it over a few times it fired for a few seconds and then quit. When I tried to pull it over it acted like it was seized! So I pulled to plugs and found that they were coated with oil... so much, that you could shake into the palm of your hand! Then when I pulled the rope oil came spewing out of the jugs! I went throught the whole thing again with the same results.... Any thoughts?

Re: Oil injection problems?

clean the carbs and put fresh fuel in the float bowls through the fuel line,then try to start it WITH OUT putting fuel in the cylinders. it would act like its seized because you cant compress raw fuel(your putting too much down the cylinders),thats why the pluggs look like crap. dont forget to use fresh plugs to help it out.

You might check... Polaris engines have a pipe plug in the bottom front of the crankcase which can be removed to drain a flooded engine. If it's full of oil you can even use them to flush.
