what's up ya'll. i recently aquired a 1973 vespa ciao and she is a delightful machine. but she won't run.
i have mounted the engine on it, cleaned its parts,
and got new piston rings but i cannot get it to spark. i might need a new clutch cable and spring for the carb, but aside from that, i can't see what the problem could be.
it seems to be in pretty good condition (minimal rust,
all the engine parts look good, brakes work great,
etc.) and it only has 800 miles on it. so i'm thinking
it should work. but still no spark. could
anyone give me any help? anything would be appriciated,
as i have hassled with it for 4 weeks to no avail.
