I have heard many moons ago that they are a bit finicky. If you notice they are not to popular on here or at the field. just my 2 cents

I have owned 3 of them George. They are able to run on gas or glow. If it is already a glow motor, you will need a new carb. The jets are much bigger on the glow carbs due to the increase in fuel consumption with glow fuel. You will also need an ignition system if you want to run it on gas. Good little motor though. Jim Cline is a real good guy to answer questions on these engines too. He been playing with them since before they invented the wheel...


If I can answer any more questions, just ask.
