Would start on about the 2-3 try about 4 years ago. Drained all the gas and it sat in storage for 4 years.
Yesterday I cleaned the spark plug (gapped at .025), cleaned and checked the points gap at .020 added 16:1 gas. No fire, nothing. Tried it with a big electric drill and still nothing. Carb is clean, as is the filter on the pick-up tube.
Spark is not the best, but it started easily and ran perfect with that same spark 4 years ago. Gas is being pulled into the bottom of the block, but does not show up on the spark plug or front of the piston. Tried starting fluid into the carb and then into the spark plug hole. Nothing either way.
Compression is about 30#, which I don"t think is enough to pull the gas to the plug. Removed the cylinder and intake and exhaust passages are clean. Ring edges are sharp and rings are loose and compress into the clean groves on the piston.
Ran perfect 4 years ago and now will not evan pop, let alone run.. Need some assistance on what to do next.
Thanks, Tom/Idaho
