Hi. My name is ***** ***** I would appreciate the opportunity to help with your question.

Expert:  Steve replied 2 months ago.

your engine requires only 3 things to start and run.

- spark (timed ignition)

- fuel (proper air/fuel mixture)

- compression.

if you did not reassemble the cam, gearcase and ignition correctly, you may have low compression or your spark may be out of time or non existent. nothing you did should have affected the carburetor or fuel supply, so if it was running before you did this, it should be ok.

- check for spark and check for compression.

let me know what you find and I will help you resolve the issue.
