Hi Norman,

Good luck starting the Scott. If all else fails, give me a ring on 01785 713862 and I’ll come over and have a look-see.

One clever dodge to start a Scott that has been standing some time is to use the Magic Secret.

The Magic Secret is to put your hand completely over the carb inlet and give two or three kicks to draw in a rich mixture. When stopping the engine say overnight, stall the engine out the same way.

The rich mixture will help it start the next day.

Stan Thomas.


Dont tell anyone the Magic Secret.
