it was not sitting long
It was not sitting long. It was used alot, also has lots of signs of maintenance over the years. Looks like the last user was not very good at proper fixes, but someone has spent alot on repairs over the years.
Also no smoke or real oil use over the 3.5 hours I drove it. Ran smooth other than stops and starts since I bought it. Like I mentioned it would die on small ammount of throttle input. I think I have corrected it now with the replacement of the carb parts.
So I think we are good on running gear other than tires.
