ok here is everything i can remember:
petcock leaks, which means after a week, my moped is usually empty.
I pull out my moped to put the wiring onto it (i've just gotten it back together a couple of weeks ago and it's been running nicely).
the Puch started briefly (a few seconds) then sputtered out due to no fuel. I fill with gas that has been evaporating for awhile. and the oil hasnt, and so i believe the ratio was way off. i didnt think about it until after the fact though. When i saw too much smoke coming from the exhaust, that's when i thought about it.
Sooo... i shut it off and stopped worrying about it. I get it all wired up. then i try to start it and it wont start. I take all the wiring back off to make sure i didnt ground something i wasnt supposed to.
Still, it wont start. so i drain the tank and refill it with a fresh gas mix. No luck.
I have spark. I have compression. Nothing occurred recently that would have caused it to just not start...besides that gas thing.
Further876 was over in the afternoon and tried his hand at figuring it out, but no luck for him either. So if anyone has any suggestions that we havnt though of, or questions, please let me know! thanks a lot in advance.
PS. forgive my spelling/grammer mistakes if any, it's late and i'm watching Rushmore right now.
