I have been working on my carb/timing for days and have cranked the engine hundreds of times to check adjustments. This is the one time that I forgot to take it out of gear. Luckily I have cat like reflexes and security cameras. The choke was fully pulled and when i turned the engine over it took off like a rocket and went over a 7 foot hill, near vertical. :whoops:
not many yet, there are a couple of videos on my youtube channel. i think there my be a walk around video of it when i first got it.
That's how my uncle was killed. They were trying to get a tractor started and my uncle was standing in front of it. It was in gear and jumped up and landed on him when they tried to start it. Luckily you were ok and the door didn't get you.
