Change the oil, gasoline, and spark plugs. The carburetors will probably need to be rebuilt so be prepared for some leakage (fire extinguisher handy!). And of course don't ride it far on those old tires. Good luck, great find.

Cranks no start or fire add gas down throat of carbs and it back fires out pipes and carbs

bikes that sit for long periods of time need there points or electronics pick-ups serviced , rust and aluminum corrosion happens over time on these

and yes the carbs/tank will need a total cleaning out too

Wont crank has been sitting for 2 years cus it needs a water pump

Clean any terminals to shiny clean as the green gunk will cause a high resistance to current flow, Remove the spark plugs and put a quantity of diesel in the pots ( say 50mls). Allow to sit for about 1/2 hour and this will allow any rust on the cylinder walls to soften and helps initially lubricate the bores and rings. Crank it over for a few times and refit the plugs.. This allows the oil pump to pick up oil before there is load placed on the bearings... Replace any fuel filters. Have you replaced the water pump . If not why waste you time trying to start it until you do .

The steam vac will not pick up dirty water. I never had this problem with a steam cleaner. I bought Hoover because of its reputation and I cannot get the suction on the bottom container to work. This...

The most common reason for lack of pick up is that the lid is not fully seated on the dirty water tank. Be sure to hook the two tabs on the front of the lid, and then snap the rear latch into place. Another reason is that the duct on the front of the dirty water tank is missing. The duct may have been removed to install the hose, and was not put back in place. It is a square plastic piece, about the size of a slice of sandwich bread, which slides into the front of the tank. On new models the duct tilts forward and cannot be removed. A far less common reason for no pick-up is that the seal that the tank sits on has fallen off the motor cover suction tube. You will see a round tube on the bottom of the dirty water tank. This sits on top of a large rubber seal on the motor cover when the tank is in place. Be sure the seal has not fallen down into the hood.

Stalls when moved

This crack of course links to the carbi bowl so if its split it is losing fuel level and so will rob the unit of fuel to keep it running.

Car wont start it sounds out of gas but its not

Try changing your fuel filter. After setting for over a year your filter may of have picked up some trash that settled in your tank. Also check your fuses you may of have blown your fuel pump fuse. Also you may try putting some new fuel.

Getting gas and fire but not starting

Change the gas. That gas is no good after a year of sitting,probably has water in it. Hopefully it didn't laquer the fuel pump pick-up screen.

WM-D6C Battery holder

Because of the age of the unit, Sony will not carry that part. However, keep an eye on E-bay and yard sales and thrift stores and hopefully you can pick one up real cheap. Good Luck
