Hello,is there spark to both plugs?Compression readings okay?Tried carb cleaner or starting fluid,did it fire at all?Ignition timing was checked, okay?Battery up, turning over well?
Try some fresh spark plugs.I would make sure compression is okayTry the points at .018"-.020" gapand then recheck the ignition timing.It sounds like the timing is out possibly.If it has a mechanical advance uniton the points see if it is stuck.Check for intake air leaks.Carbs can gum up quickly when sitting too.
I tried all the above with no luck. I was told it might be a problem with one of the tappets and when I checked the front one was dislocated from the roller. I hope that was the problem. I am going to try to pick up a tappet assembly in the morning. Any tips on replacing that?
