    Let's see, he thinks he has a grounding problem and has a set of jumper cables.... shouldn't be too hard to figure out. Oh well, I'm sure the mixture and carb heat cables will do just fine.

    All the little Lyc's/Cont's were designed to run on 80/87 so I don't see 90 Mogas being any kind of an issue (assuming no ethanol) with mags set to spec. They actually lose power and run slightly...
