    Help

    Hey guys, brand new to gas powered r/c. Always wanted one and got the opportunity to own one but it needs a little work. So here’s my problem. I pulled the motor and cleaned it. It spins freely and with the ez starthooked up I can rotate the engine with my hand. For whatever reason when I put everything together the engine will not rotate at all. I can hear the ez start working. I don’t have fuel in it right now and I’m not sure what kind of setting the carb is at. Really need some help here. Appreciate it.
    Ps. It is a 3.3.

    The one-way bearing between the engine and starter needs to have the lettering facing the engine. Make sure there is a washer between the back plate and the bearing as well.

    The starter also has a red dot to signify positive and needs to have the red wire hooked up to it. Looking at the back of the engine it will rotate clockwise.
