To anyone that can help me, I would appreciate it if you could he e back. I recently bought a 1978 Honda NC50. I trust and know the owner so I don't believe that they cheated me. But for some reason it will not turn over. The first day that I drove it it kept stalling whenever I stopped. On the second day it would run for about 12 seconds and then cut out. Now it won't even turn over. I am not quite sure where to even begin to fix it. If you know of where I can get a Repair Manual I would appreciate. Or if you have some knowledge on how to fix them maybe we can do some Q & A via e-mail to help me fix it so that I can be liberated and stop staring at it sitting in the garage.
Now as a beginning point I noticed that it was out of oil after I rode it that first time. Maybe there is an air pocket somewhere, but how do I look? I have checked the battery but I don't quite know what I am looking for. How do I know if it needs re-charging? And if so how can I re-charge it? The fuse looks okay and same for the spark plug. Anything that you can do would help.
