Your Weaver looks like it wants to run, so maybe you just need to find the settings. Since it would continue to fire in bursts after stopping, it must have been drawing fuel and maybe it was just too rich. I would be closing the needle a bit and upping the compression to suit. It is making all the right sounds. Well done.

Hi Ken!!!
Yes, seems like the engine wants to run... after those short burst, noticed a lot of black oil in the compression lever.. so contra piston is not sealing well.... i made a new one and will give it a try soon.
i have some kind of small leak in the crankshaft too, as same oil can be seen in the prop plate (my fault... when finished my crankshaft i didn´t sand it.. so was kind of coarse... ) now it get polished with the case and a leak! may be i will need to make a thicker one.
