Engine - 1945ish Derny Cyclomoteur, Zurcher motor. 98cc.
I need input for setting the static timing for the COOL old engine..
I tried 10 degrees before TDC and a gap of .0015.. NOTHING.
Where to I Start to get it to Start??
What has been done:
Removed cylinder - deglazed bore.
Cleaned piston and ring lands. It had usually Larger rings ( 2)
Seal base gasket and head..
Added a buzz box coil to insure HOT SPARK... Good blue spark.
I put it on a stand.. .and it started and would run on choke... rev with throttle, backfire and die... ie would not take throttle..
THUS I figured improper timing..
I DID NOT mark the prior testing timing position (Dumb I know).
1. I found TDC with piston stop.
2. Marked (Keyed) fly wheel and head with TDC and added advance/retart marks for 20 degrees+-
3. Timing is set by clocking the distributor to gear reduction.. I set the timing to 10 degrees of advance...
4. Spin the motor with drill... nothing other than a single pop?
Now I dont know what to do..
