Perhaps Hagar has data from his test set. But the bottom line is that
you can run for a couple of days on a tank.
Hagar did measure just bout everything that could be measured. BUT my advice is to
get it to start. Fuel prices what they are.
Have you got access to Falcon pipettes ? and ether ? ---------- On an old girl like that
move pump two pencil lines ----advancing pump does wonders to starting cold.
Retard again when it warms up out there. And get four plugs working. How old is the battery ?.
A remote starter is one way to do it. -------- Guys like James Hansen , Sandy Cameron , Val Christian
and Hagar would have that thing start at 30 below. . Like likkety split.
BUT it is a PITA situation. ----look around for a place to plug it in. ---- Power ? 400 watt for ten
hours ? 4 kwh ? Right ? that is only 0.06190 X 4 = $ 0.2476 (here) a quarter ? canadian ---shit I would pay them a Dollar US for a plug in.
PS : go 0 W 30 . and put a good ground on the starter. "Nutmeg " remember ?
