24023BDC1946RunningI bought it in early 2014 and very slowly, until a week ago, progress was slowwwwwwww. This afternoon, at 4.43 and 20 seconds, (2017) on my son second go at starting, it rocketed to life and never wavered. After a few minutes we turned it off, tightened myriad loose nuts and hooked up a temporary water supply
