Hard starting

Recommended Posts

Ronald Hribar

my brother called me. His Vanguard 18 hp was hard starting. He could turn the motor over easily by turning flywheel. New starter ,Battery, battery cables and solenoid did not help. Nor jumping it with his truck.

I felt that it was a bad ground, and suggested running ground cable to the starter. That did not help either.

He went online and found a case where the exhaust valve was the culprit

But he could not detrimine what valve was exhaust. So he adjusted all 4 an 1/8 of a turn.

The motor started right up.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
