      Do not use starting fluid. I am rebuilding a K341 right now because someone used Bill Cosby in a can. Popped the top off of the piston above the wrist pin.

    I have a CV16S that’s backfiring through the carburetor. I see that all CV engines have hydraulic lifters, therefore no valve adjustment is necessary. Every time I try to start it with starting fluid it pops back through carb. It will run a few seconds until the start fluid burns up. Ideas?
