About 15 years ago I had a 1951 8N, rebuilt from the ground up intending to show it. That never happened. There are hardly any hours on it, and Henry (as I call him) has been in my shop and hasn't been run for about 7 years. I will buy a new battery, and have drained the old gas out. I want to get him up and running and would appreciate any tips. I have a sense it would be a good idea to take the plugs out, put a teaspoon of oil in each cylinder, turn it over, and put the plugs back in before trying to start him. Do I need to prime the carb? Any suggestions to make this easier on him would be appreciated. Thanks Doug.
