Hi Bruno, Welcome aboard. Nice to see another Canadian here. I'd check the oil before I change it. Go through the fuel system first make sure all is good and new fuel. Then get it running and warmed up then I change it. That's what I do if I buy one that hasn't ran in a while. And of course. We all love pictures. Good luck

Well! Bought some stuff, spark plug, new spark plug cable, air filter, battery and other cable, cleaned it up a little, tried to start it....nothing! Battery voltage is 12 volts, all the wires seem intact and plugged in except for the front lights. Now im thinking may be the coil, the starter switch or an interlock somewhere thats keeping me from starting but i think all that must have been removed some time ago. Should i try to just jump the whole circuit providing current to the starter itself? Im not to familiar with this. Bruno

Someone has painted her. Looks good with the gray panels. I would suspect it's a bad or grounded safety switch.

Hehe! Got it, i jumpstarted the coil. Now found the transmission fluid contaminated by water. Ill run the engine some more and change the fluids all together. Transmission works on reverse but very slow forward. Gearshisft lever is bent too and very slack idk if its normal. Motor vehicle Vehicle Automotive tire Bumper Automotive exterior
