I am having problems with my 1979 motobecane 50v. Recently, we rebuilt the engine to put on a ported crankcase. When we put it back together, it got no spark, despite the new points and condensor...we ended up putting on a spare stator plate that Bret had that is different from mine (3 coils instead of 2). It ran for a while, but then it would die and I didn't know why. It would run for a little while then just die. So, I figured the condensor on this spare stator plate was bad, especially since the points were really dirty. Long story short, I ended up fixing my original stator plate with the new points and condensor and now it gets spark.
However, I cannot get it to start. It clearly gets spark, I have checked and re-checked the timing and point gap, made sure the points are clean, made sure everything is wired correctly, cleaned the petcock and carburetor, I know that it is getting fuel flow because the float bowl is full and the jet is not clogged, and I also know that the compression is fine (even installed a new high compression head). Oh, and I checked that the gas was on and the kill switch is off. Nothing has worked.
Seriously, I have just no idea why the bike won't start. Any ideas?
