Morini MO1 Questions

Ok, so i just bought a 78 morini MO1 Pacer tonight. Im used to working on Sachs motors and right now, i dont really know anything about this MO1 model.

First of all the motor isnt starting. There is spark because its hard wired for the time being. I think i am going to start off by cleaning out the carb. There is obviously issues with it since i found a little bit of gas/oil mixture in the Air filter.

Does anyone know what the main issues to look for in this motor.

yeah, not being able to find parts, that's the biggest problem.

If there's fuel in the carb and air cleaner, there's probably lots of oil mix in the case. My float needle was bad, and gas leaked into the case. Does it smoke a lot? The previous owner also had the wrong plug in it too. They take a long reach plug, NGK B6ES. A short plug greatly reduces the compression ratio.
