post number 133

I fired up the sears for the first time yesterday. the timing was too far advanced, I am retarding it six degrees and will fire it up again this afternoon. I did a few dry runs yesterday without spark plugs installed to check the oiling system and everything worked the way it should. I dropped the oil and found a little bit of brass, and one little sliver of aluminum in my pre filter, I am not really concerned about it, but will definately keep an eye on it in the coming miles. I should have some more start up videos and riding footage later on tonight. Have a great day everybody, mine is phenominal so far!
HEre is a link to the dry run footage.


  1. Congrats! What ignition timing did you end up at? I'm setting mine tonight.
