Re: new 510 owner in houston

Ok got spark this weekend but no luck on her to fire. I'm feeling closer to having her back on the road after a 15 year vacation. Got most of the electrical worked out too just need to get the blinkers working. Haven't taken a good look at that yet I'm sure it's simple.

I do have a problem not getting any stiffness in the pedal though. I used a hand pump brake bleed kit and it didn't seem to do the job s...
