My dad brought home a Moped that cost him $30! CAD! Wasn’t running, here’s what we did…
We cleaned the carb, checked fuel flow/spark. Would run only if we put gas in the carb and would die out once that was burned off. Finally, we added a gasket (cereal box) and tightened the bolts that hold the carb to the engine. It worked pretty well!
We drove it a while, oil began leaking out of all the bolts holding the crankcase, which we discovered were a mix and match of different lengths and sizes. I also discovered there was NO bolt in several of the holes, only some unidentified goo covering up a small twig that was jammed in.
