I got 20105 (with strombergs) started and it belched out so much white smoke that it looked like a cropduster. What was weird is I shut the thing off after a minute and then restarted it 20 minutes later and no smoke. Today I put the thing on a trailer and the same thing; 1st start tons of smoke then and hour later when I started it to back off the trailer no smoke, sounded good so I took a victory lap around the building to knock the rust off the brakes before parking it (lotsa fun).  It has been sitting for 20 years and was started up once about 5 years ago. When I first hooked up the battery to check for leaks the bottom plugss were dumping but after sitting a couple days I guess the fresh gas dissolved the varnish in the float bowls and they quit leaking.
