Not sure what he thought continuing to crank it would accomplish. Was he trying to gravity-feed that from a gas can? Trying to blow out the flames... wonder if the fire department ever tried that? Makes me wonder what his next video will show?

I know that if you have a bit of flame from a backfire on top of the carb, you can extinguish it by cranking and sucking the flame into the carb........maybe that was his thought. Not much thought went into this......lol

I just saw this posted on Facebook by the PowerBlock TV folks - they referred to him as a gearhead - I would have thought idiot would have been more appropriate. He's lucky he didn't burn his house down and himself in the process.

They changed the one on PowerBlock to a series of still photos.
