Well, I've done it. I bought a used Argo. It does not have the original engine but a somewhat newer Bombardier 2 stroke engine. 440cc, 28HP.
1. There is lots of smoke when I get it started. Is this indicative of anything particular? What can I do about it?
2. I have no way of knowing how many hours are on the engine as the Argo's original meter is not connected and may not function at all. Where would I get a new one so that I can monitor engine use for maintenance?
Thanks in advance. I'm sure I'll have lots more questions. I'm not only new to Argo's, I'm new to the whole engine maintenance/mechanical scene.
