Puch Problems/Spark Problems

Michael Nesson /

I have a 1980 Puch Maxi, 2 spd that I picked up this winter. Put a new petcock on it, new plug, cleaned the gas tank, new fuel line, cleaned the carb and jet...now it won't start. When I changed the plug and cleaned the carb it started and ran (with lots of smoke). Can't get a spark now....anyone have ideas or suggestions. Thanks for your help!

Taillight bulb still good? Happens sometimes.....no spark because tailight safety feature.

Maybe you fouled your plug out with all that smoke? Check points? don-ohio (:^D

check your compression, should be around 120lbs.

check your points, file them, reset them.see if that helps. they might be dirty.

Make sure that the cap that goes on top of you spark plug is tight and also cheack to see if you have a good connection between you coil and your spark plug wire. If the copper is not touching the screw inside your coil you have a bad connection and your plug could be miss fireing
