No problem, glad to hear it
For the record though it is okay to crank the engine with the spark plugs out, you will have zero compression, so anything that was compressing in cylinders and not letting you crank the engine will get blown out, quite quickly... It's pretty fun..
Next time you seafoam (I wholly agree with seafoaming every 15-20k miles..)
Just a thought, try pouring the seafoam into a cup, rather than jamming the vacuum tube into the seafoam can (only assuming you did this, if not see below) - I use a red 'party' cup
Pour in desired amount of seafoam then "skim" the fluid.. When I do it, I am sure to suck in more air than seafoam.. Still has the desired affect, engine will stumble pretty badly though I've never let it stall on its own, i've always had to shut it off.. and still have quite a smoke show on restart..
Anyhow.. glad it worked out for you!
