Now I'm having a hard time getting it to do anything. It doesn't even seem like it wants to combust anymore. I have checked the spark and it sparks great. The piston blows my finger off the spark plug hole when I rotate the fly wheel. I have sprayed carb cleaner into the engine and it just isn't starting up. My gas mixture is roughly 6 oz of 2-stroke oil to 2 gallons of gas. I'm truly at a loss.
Here are the things that raise alarms in my mind, but this is my first moped so I'm unsure if this is normal:
Everytime I try to start it black stuff drips from the muffler connection to the pipe leading to the enigne. (7-8 drops)
When I took the muffler off, a tablespoon of sludge came out of the pipe. (along with some chunky stuff)
The Air-intake runs through the frame of the bike so its pretty hard to control how much air goes to the carb via an air filter that looks like a really crappy little dish sponge.
Just a couple questions:
should I try revving the throttle when I'm pedaling to start it?
am I flooding the engine causing nastyness to find its way into the muffler?
will the engine seize up if I continue to attempt a start up?
*Does ANYONE own the same/similar JAWA manual?
God I'm starting to hate this bike :)
