Getcher motor runnin...

A few months ago we picked up a motor that we eventually identified as being from a Honda CB750 to run our fan. The motor is overkill for the 20-30 Hp that I need for the fan, but it was cheap and it seemed to come with all of the little ignition doohickeys needed to make it go. We got it from a guy about an hour past Athens with an old shipping container that he was using as storage for his tractor repair shop. He was trying to get the container cleaned out of his past projects. After spending a couple of months leaking oil onto the shop floor at work, Mark and Trevor built a stand for it and took it back to his garage.
Trevor and I have made some progress getting it going. Trevor found some electrical diagrams online, and we got the motor to turn over. Now we just need to figure out how to keep the carbs from spewing fuel all over the floor.
