Hello all. I have been lurking for a couple of weeks, so I thought I would introduce myself. I am from eastern Iowa, and I purchased an old barn found Vulcan two weeks ago. It has sat for 18 years, and never started. In these two weeks, I’ve cleaned the carbs, picked up a set of 142/42 needles (thinking I should get a 138 main), started the ear shave mod (still need to get the four filters), did the blue wire mod, and the two wire mod. Yesterday, I changed the oil (jet black) and flushed the radiator (milky and brown... hope it’s not the head gasket). I had it started for about 10 minutes when I unloaded it from my truck, so today, I will give the tank a muratic acid and naval jelly bath, finish rebuilding the petcock, and see how she runs! It doesn’t shift, but from what I have found here, the pawl spring might be the issue.
