The good news is that I drove the Champ up to The Farm and dumped off some stuff and picked up some stuff and then made it over to Onawa Graffiti Night and then back to Omaha without trouble. I even enjoyed the 3.1-60 AC.....

The bad news is that it looked like bonehead body man let my Hawk sit so long that the motor is locked up. One of the selling points on that car was that the motor was a fairly fresh rebuild. I mixed up some power steering fluid and acetone and poured it down the manifold.

You might have better luck putting that mixture in an oil can and squirting it into each spark plug hole.

I'll try that next time I'm up at The Farm. It'll probably avoid that pesky hydraulic lock thing too.

Naw, just pull the plugs when you attempt the turnover. It makes things easier on the starter, engine, and makes a mess with the concoction all over the engine compartment. No lock-up though!https://s.yimg.com/ok/u/assets/img/emoticons/emo45.gif
