You are back to the olden days when the manufacturers offered a bunch of options from the engine sizes to transmission types. Not knowing which engine isn't necessary except for specific specs . You are carburator not injection so the carb may need rebuilding/adjusting. The choke can cause starting problems for sure. I'd lean towards the carb as a first peek.


I have to watch assuming- you said wires ----plugs too?
