Re: First tune-up: Charter Arms 38 Undercover

Re: Anybody recognize this old one cylinder mystery engine?

now is the time for a tablet/cheep phone and make sure you take pics of everything as it comes apart every step of the way.

that 20.30 dallor phone will be a life saver down the road. i concur on the brand and advice to make sure nothing is stuck, gummed up etc before a run test.
