I have a tomos a3 bullet that refuses to start and keep going. I have powerful spark, thanks to ree. I have gas flow because the spark plug is wet when I take it out and gas is coming out of the muffler, slightly. The carb was cleaned right before I put on the new engine. I have good compression and everything is moving well.
When I try to start it, it gets going for a small time (1-3 seconds) and then slowly dies off. I've tried with the choke and without. I've tried very little gas, a lot of gas, and everywhere in between. The only success I've had is when I choke it and give it medium gas to get it moving and then kick it again with no choke and max gas.
Right now, I'm thinking it could be:
a.) a clogged muffler
b.) not enough fuel pressure (my petcock was plugged yesterday but miraculously unplugged to make a huge puddle in the morning)
c.) my moped is possessed by satan, the dark prince, himself.
So, any ideas? I have the next two days off so any suggestion (no matter how crazy) will be considered and attempted.
