the bike is a 1961 hummer super -10 . my dad had it
redone frame -up . i was not involved although i drove
the bike back in the 60's as a kid. it is and has been a
show bike . i pulled the plug first thing once i bought
the bike and it shows that it ran at least once .... nice
clean used plug . it was always hard to start int he 60's
so we pushed it and popped the clutch . i do not want to
do that to this nice bike . even so if i am not getting
gas , push start might not work has passed so i
cannot refer back in time . i am o k with the spark but
really scratching about the no gas . and the fact that i
put gas in the cylinder and still no pop ! i appreciate
everyones help and stay tuned i will be patient and get
this baby started yet . yes - ok i could and will call
the builder of the bike but , like the group we you are
want to do this on my own . i am going to put a plastic
bag over the intake and make sure i have compression ,
suction ...once i call the re-builder he will fill me in
. he is local and owns about 50 hummers . so stay tuned
and keep writing , i will listen to all . thanks , Pat.


Excuse me for being a pest. Let's go back in time...

This is a 195_ ??? Harley Hummer model B.

You had the motor rebuilt last year. Afterwards you rode
the bike. It started and ran just fine. You parked it and
didn't do anything until this summer. Now it won't

Is the above totally true?

although i have a blue spark it does not
seem to spark on every kick

Have you checked the points gap? Lightly filed the
points with a points file? Replaced the spark plug with a
brand new Champion H8C?

When you stick your finger in the spark plug hole and
kick the bike over, does the compression try to blow your
finger out of the spark plug hole, then suck it back in?


i was told to put a little gas down the spark plug
into the cylinder , which i did , not even a pop . hate
to start tearing stuff apart but let me see the response
on this one although i have a blue spark it does not seem
to spark on every kick .... thinking i might have weak
coil . is it the one under the gas tank ? anyway can i
put a fluke meter on dc current stick one red probe in
the spark plug boot the other to ground and kick it over
for a reading ? what kind of number should i be looking
for if any at all .

thanks , pat
