your engine requires ONLY 3 things to start and run.

- fire

- fuel

- compression.

ensure your timing is correct.

ensure the carburetor is functioning properly and providing the correct air/fuel ratio.

if both are correct, perform a compression test on both cylinders and forward the results to me. let me know if you need instruction on performing a compression check.

let me know if you need any other help.

if not, then please leave a POSITIVE RATING.

thank you,
