equeen.........you write......."and tried pouring bit of gas in each cyl".......might as well whipped out the ol'whizzer and peeeeee into the engine. Liquid gasoline does NOT ignite!!! Must be a vapor. That is what yer carby does, create a burnable vapor for the sparkies to sparkle.

The 5-nipple roundcan ignition coil is semi-bulletproof. HOWSOMEVERS; the side plastic feedthru can short out and you will never make sparkies. And when you change points (0.025") ALWAYS polish the INVISIBLE corrosion from between the points. Me? I use a clean $1-bill clamped between the points and pull. Iff'n yer really cheap, tear a strip from HEAVY brown paper grocery sack and use that.

Leave yer frickin' head on, its is NOT yer problem. Ford compression specs: 90psi min, dry; new rebuilt engine is about 125psi. From yer 15-min runtime description, change yer weaksister ignition switch. ($10, cheap) ........Dell, yer self-appointed sparkie-meister

EVERYONE at one time or another has fired a engine by "Priming" the engine by putting "A little" gas in the cylinders !

Put your books away!

" EVERYONE at one time or another ......"

Which of course makes it a perfectly acceptable action.

It also washes the cylinder walls & fouls the plugs.

Starting fluid doesn't.

To do this "Once in a great while" will hurt nothing.
