Spark, timing, compression, gas in the cylinder, starting
fluid.... no 'pop'.
Crankshaft seals. It's a two-stroke.

i tried that and did not even get a pop , starting to
think i might have a weak coil . hate to start tearing
things apart unnececary . although the plug gave me a
blue spark it did not every time i turned the engine over
? coil is for the ignition , is it the one mounted under
the gas tank ? i have a fluke meter can i test a-c
current ? that low ? thinking of putiing it on a-c stick
the red probe in the spark plug boot and ground the black
. make any sense ? what numbers should i get on the meter
? getting desperate .............. thanks for all your
input.

plug
hole, replace plug, and kick it a couple of kicks,
should
fire up

well my recent update that is a carb is getting
complicated or is it ? i have gas to the carb of my
hummer
1961 super 10 , took the float off and cleaned the bowl ,
reassembled checked for a blue spark all looked good .
when i
kick the bike - choke closed / open /both / it seems i am
not
getting gas to the engine . the spark plug is always dry
.
take the float off again check for gas , bowl is filled
with
clean gas but doesent seem to transfer to or out of the
carb
to the engine ? any ideas ? this is a newly rebuild that
ran
last year . yes the float and needle are free .move up
/down
pretty good .i am ready to take the carb off but dont
know
what good that would do since i am getting gas .dry plug
always !!!! no starting fluid did not help either . i
would
appreciate any suggestions or e-mail - ppanos1@gmail.com
