I rescued mine out of a guy's back pasture that had been sitting for ~6 years. Got it home, discovered it wouldn't idle and had a bad knock. After initially freaking out thinking it was the rods or bearings, people on here reassured me the carbs needed an overhaul.

Bottom line, the tank sediment had jammed the bowl inlet microscreens to the point the carbs were starving for fuel. After a Randakk rebuild and numerous carb synchs, it runs fine, if a little rattly.
Still miss my VFR though, now THAT'S some power. Someday I'll get a GL1800.
