Now I am using a 14mm socket on a reversable drill to crank the thing. :)
One thing I can figure is that a Bing carb will not function properly if it is mounted cock-eyed in any way. I am going to make a spacer for the intake to give me the clearance to spin the carb and get it mounted correctly.
I have a Q about the slots on the top of the piston. The old piston did not have any. It seems to me that on the intake stroke all of the mixture would go thru these slots and toward the crank and not the head. There are ports on the side of the cylinder to let part of the mixture go to the crank for on the compression stroke for lubrication. Why does the 70cc kit have the slots? And opposite of the slots on the piston is an arrow that currently points to the exhaust side of the cylinder. I always thought that the arrow should point to the intake side. This is puzzling because if I flip the piston over the slots would be on the exhaust side and the arrow would point to the intake. The instructions say to put the slots to the intake side though.
It just seems odd to me and I am running out of things to try here.
