fire extinguisher as a wheel chock...
For those who carry... fire extinguishers, the most common fire extinguishers are the 'powder type'. These need to be 'tapped' softly as described. Otherwise the extinguisher is only useful for a rather ineffective wheel chock.
"Use a rubber mallet to firmly tap the bottom of it several times. Over time, the ABC powder inside an extinguisher can compact at the bottom (or the side if carried horizontally). When it does that it leaves it virtually useless when an emergency strikes. So you'll want to do this every several months to loosen up the powder." Check the pressure while you are at it...

AFTER loading the pump fuel inlet with MMO, turn the engine over BY HAND using the front pulley bolt. Spark plugs removed.
Put a coupla table spoons of MMO in each cylinder also. You can do that now and let it soak.

The rubber line from the filter to that fitting on the pump. Fill it up with MMO. Have you spun the engine over at all?

How much MMO?
What will this do for me?

|Billy_McSkintos||Yes, I have replaced all the lines and the fuel tank. Once I drain and replace the coolant in the radiator, I'm going to turn the key...|

|Farace||The rubber fuel lines on the other side of the filter canister should be examined, too, between the end of the hard lines coming from the tank and the filter.|

I finally found the time to get it done, thank you for your guidance!
I also replaced the fuel lines to and from the filter to the SPICA; anything else I should do while it's opened up there (bearing in mind, I am yet to turn the key)? Some SPICA stuff?
