WR400 oil leak now not starting

1 post in this topic

Ok so I bought a 1998 wr400 and the guy said it didn't run and he didn't want to deal with it. I took it home and did some work on the carb ( edelbrock ) and then went to kick it ( I put fresh fluids in her). When I kicked it it sounded like it wanted to start then started within 5 hard kicks. Then I start to notice oil spewing out and one of the oil line bolts broke off and he didn't tell me about it. So I got a new oil bolt and new oil and tried to start it but now it's not starting at all and has starts coming out after about 8 kicks. Just wondering if there's anything I can do before tearing into the carburetor.
