She runs!

I've drained the fuel tank; horrible smell!

The nylon line was clogged for about an inch. I've used a drill bit to remove the sticky varnish and forced some lacquer thinner from the other end to clean the line.

This is the fuel that came out!

This is the hydraulic filter.

Put some grease to protect the battery holder.

She ran but with fuel poured in the carb. The engine sounds good but the fuel pump is not working. May be some dirty valves inside the pump; we'll see tomorrow. Also, the starter works by bypassing the ignition switch; I'll install a relay like I usually do on SM's.
