You say it was dropped and broke the choke lever, that much energy probably also broke/cracked the insulator between the carb and block which would create a bad air leak and we know 2-cycles and air leaks don't go well together. Have a good one. GeoNo, the plug is not getting wet even when I choke the heck out of it. I have tried a carb kit with no luck. Fuel lines are new and hooked up properly. I am not getting fuel in the bulb though. Seems like it is sucking air. Bulb is new. The rubber nipple under the bulb seems fine. Plug is not new, but I do have spark when I have the plug out and grounded to the engine. I have not removed the flywheel yet. With the plug out I can see the piston is about 1/2-3/4" away from TDC when the magnets pass the coil. Is this about right? I replaced the choke lever for the owner as is was broke due to it being dropped. It ran fine before I returned it to him. Am loosing my patience with this one!!!!
If it did not have such good compression, I would not be wasting my time.
