IT WAS THE STARTER WIRES.
: Sounds like the starter to me. I'd check
: the electrical connections for a start.
: If it's a preheating problem, then the
: typical symptom is engine spinning, belching
: black smoke and not catching.
: Btw, a better way of pre-heating. Is to
: turn the key, let the green light go out.
: Then turn it of immediately and give it
: another cycle. The heating ends very soon
: after the green light goes out, definitely
: shorter than 30 sec.
: Good luck,
