Re: 15 inch Wheel ID

Why did you not go to 5 on 5 1/2 by 16. Loads of those around. Also seems that brand new wheels cheaper than converting

Re: First time engine start problem (non start)

Just checked it and it reads 3. I think I better get a meter that reads at least one digit to the right of the decimal point. No point in going farther tell I do that.
