Stumped- Jawa Babetta

Hi, everyone. I recently got a 1979 Jawa Babetta from my grandfather, in the hopes that I could get it to run. However, Ive worked on it quite a bit, and it still wont run.

So far, I have:

1) Made sure I have gas flow. (even gets into the chamber, then seems to leak out exhaust port-not pipe)

2) I have spark (nice big blue one)

3) I have compression

And yet, the moped wont run. It DOESNT have a CDI, and the points seem to be mounted on a ring on the right side of the engine (under a cover). Are they misadjusted? (these are NOT the kind of points that come apart then close again). It seems that its a ring with a rotating cylinder inside of it. I cleaned those with carb cleaner and 600 grit sandpaper, no luck. Ive never dealt with two-strokes before, and have no idea what could be wrong. I even pedalled it downhill (no tailwind :) but to no effect. Any suggestions are welcome. Finally, some suggestions may be things ive already tried, but forgotten to mention.

Thanks,

Conal.

p.s (sorry, no pics....need to take some)
