What a pain.....but I am putting up with it.
First of all make sure you Puch owners get the "high rise" intake
manifold or the carb won't have enough room to mount!
While I am waiting on the intake to arrive I installed the old
15mm Bing (after cleaning it as a precaution) with an 82 jet back on. The kit is installed, I have spark, compression, and the muffler in new. I even ran the compressor thru the motor to dry it out after flooding the thing and that proved that I had no clogs. IE: air up thru the intake, hand crank the motor, air thru the exhaust.
I HAD 32:1 (4oz per gallon) in it like EVERYONE says you should for the break-in period. The thing will NOT fire that mix (new plug too). I just put 50:1 back in it and will try to start it again.
I am pretty sure that I installed the cylinder and piston correctly. The exhaust port is closer to the front tire than the intake port and the piston "holes' are on the intake side. I even filed and polished the intake manifold to "match" the port on the cylinder.
Has anyone else had any experience in this?
I have a 72 and 66 jet for the carb. Try those?
I also have a can of starting fluid that I haven't used YET but I am tempted.
Who needs an exercise bike when you are working on a moped? :)
I am about to take one pedal off and put my 3/4 inch heavy duty drill on it to crank the thing. Maybe it will finally give it up and start after that thing cranks it for a while :)
Or perhaps I'll just have a couple of beers and then fire up the 24" Stihl next to it and SCARE the damn thing into running!
