Well, i tried starting it. I can't see through the neon green tubing. I gave it a good 30 pumps and flooded the engine

don't have time to clean, so just going to wait till it blows up and get a new engine.

Looks great, lol. Did my advice work? It looks nice and clean and the pipe looks decent how you have it.

why not re-reroute is, and make it where the silver is on the right side and points in the right direction?

I started the engine at least 5 times today. The first two times, it would stay running idle, then shut off when i accelerate. The last few it would just stay on then quit on me. Any ideas?

Its probably because the engine isn't tuned and I have no idea how to tune it.

+ I think im developing a callus from the spark ignitor.

Well, today I emptied out the cylinder again and started her up. This time she stayed for a bit. I ran a nice circle around the lawn, put the body on. Then it died. Its running too lean, no smoke. Any idea how to tune it? @howlsatmoonlight That is an older model RS4 manual + I have manual, but it makes no sense. =.='
