Thanks for all the useful (?) advice & suggestions. After talking to some "locals" & using the provided suggestions above, I've decided that we should make sure everything is as it should be. Have bought a complete tune up kit, will drain the fuel tank (to make sure no sediment, etc.) & start with the basics. I was looking for the simple & quick solution, but after a brief conversation with the previous owner (who admitted that he had had some trouble getting it running & on the trailer for the trip to the dealer who sold it), decided we needed to do it right.

I will add that the one suggestion re: "attitude" adjustment was probably extraneous, since after 10 years flying helo's in the USMC, I have quite q bit of experience talking & treating cantankerous machines "nice" in order to get them to work. I only failed to bring one helo "back to the barn" & since nobody else in the squadron was brave enough to try flying it back, it was returned via flatbed truck!

Again "Thanks" for all the ideas, suggestions, comments!
