Re: Tilton starter Dragging!
2 rotations are pretty good. Sounds like you found an ignition problem. Not sure if timing may also be working against you or not. Many of us have over advanced the timing creating a hard start condition.
You may already know this, but carberated cars have their own personality. The timing and carb setup vary greatly. Some like a single pump before you crank. Others like two. It depends on if the engine. BTW, if you suspect it may be flooding, hold it to the floor while cranking to clear the flood. Letting a flooded motor sit for a minute before cranking again also helps. If you don't talk sweet to them sometimes, they'll take their revenge -- especially when you're in a hurry.
