Questions and AnswersQuestions and Answers
Q: Does it start at all? (5/25/22 7:25 PM)
A: I was told staff tried to start but it but then fuel was leaking so they gave up. It was towed over here and towed to other side of yard. It has newer batteries in an attempt to get it running. I do not have any other information. I am being as upfront as possible. Since it did sit for years, it is anyone's guess as to the reason why it does not start. It could be major or it could be simple. (5/25/22 7:31 PM)
