It runs! I had the cylinder honed, and cleaned up the piston. Using Enviro-rust it took me 5 days to get the gas tank cleaned to the point that I wasn’t getting visible rust specks when flushing it out. Moped Lar donated a used top ring and a new bottom ring, and I assisted him in reassembly of the engine. I had already cleaned and reassembled the carb, installed a new petcock and fuel line. We poured some gas into the tank and it started immediately! A minor adjustment was made to the idle screw and we tried the lights and horn. Everything works! We did several stop/run cycles just to make sure it was really working. My best guess is the last time this machine ran was 1985! I will use the rest of this winter to inspect the rest of it, clean it up and replace the tires. Thanks to everyone for the help and suggestions. I will post some pictures of the finished product.
