Well, I finally got my 857 running I bought at the auction in Charlottesville. I had a dead coil, nasty carb with lots of tar in it, plugged pulse fuel pump, fried regulator, and destroyed wiring harness. I rebuilt the carb, disassembled the fuel pump and cleaned it (still full of stale fuel and terrible amounts of dirt plugging it up) swapped out coils, and jumped it straight from the battery to start her. She runs pretty good, but needs a head gasket, regulator, and rewire. It did develop a peck about a minute after starting it. It doesn't smoke or throw any oil. Check out the video below and tell me what you think the peck is. I'm suspecting timing and if that is it, how do I adjust it?
