Re: Mini starter questions, plastic gears, cranking amps. (86' C30, 454 TH400)

Tried starting it today with my "Oh yeah, this is carbureted" knowledge. Went much better.

Several gas pedal presses.
Crank for 5 seconds to fill the fuel bowl.

Several gas pedal presses, pausing between each one as the accelerator pump I notice is a bit sticky coming up.

Started right up after maybe 10-15 seconds of cranking in total.

Still going to look for a mini-starter, probably OEM from the junkyard off a later model GM vehicle.
