Ok to start.... I read the article about moped repair and started fiddling around with my Motobecane. I have spark, fuel moving through the fuel line, and I'm pretty sure i have compression. Now the only problem is that it won't fire, or kick over. I'll get going with the start trigger (compression release???) until it get's going and then let off, give it a little gas and choke. All the engine does is chug and when I stop moving it stops also. Is there anything that i'm missing? If anyone has any idea on what i might want to try next it would be especially helpful.
