I bought a super 77 a few years back. I took the carb and sediment bowl off as it was full of jelled gas and let it set out behind the buildings up at the farm. I loaded it up and brought it to my shop at the house last week. I hooked up a battery and while grinding away with the starter I shot starting fluid into the manifold and she started up. I just cleaned out the gas tank and rebuilt a carb today and as soon as I can pick up the fittings to put togather a gas line, I will fire it up with real fuel.
