motobecane starting problems

I have a 78 mobylete that I rebuilt the engine on, but it still wont start. I'm thinking it is electrical, because I touched almost every machanical part on that ped so I know it is all working. its geting gas, but I haven't seen a spark yet.

any ideas.

Read Fred's "How to fix your Moped" under resources, articles.

For more detailed ignition troubleshooting see my post under "weak spark" on 11/01.

You have to remove the flywheel to access your points. Use a 3/8 air impact driver on the square socket in the flywheel nut. This is a left hand thread so be carefull to set the driver to tighten.
