Well – luck was with us. New starter in place we turned the key, allowed the fuel lines to bring gas back to the carbs, pulled the choke and after a few tries of the new gear reduction starter the V-12 came alive and ran smooth and strong like a charm! Wow – it sounded great. I could not have been happier with the work Sucarbs.com did on the four Strombergs during their long stay there. I was smiling like the Cheshire Cat!
