A couple of weeks ago I made the mistake of trying to start my kart with very little fuel in the tank. In my distracted state and in horror I ended up sucking all the fuel out of the tank and attempted to dry start the engine. Since than I obviously put a fresh load of fuel and the engine cranks up fine, drove it around my block a couple of times and everything seems to be in working order. Except for a leak that I’ve discovered in the spark plug inlet hole. Fuel/Oil is slowly leaking out and down the middle of my fins when in the past it was sealed properly.
I’m sure I’m Not the only one who’s accidentally done this! Lesson learned!
have I done any significant damage to the engine or piston rings, cylinder walls etc?
Given the leak and the fact I’m running a Mychron 4 is it recommended to remove the spark plug washer before using said spark plug?
