picked up this tomos the other day...I actually owned it a year ago. The guy who bought it off me didn't take great care of it.

It isn't running, I figured it was just crap in the carb.

But even with a clean carb it won't run.

Currently, it will start at WOT with starter fluid and then run off the gas in the carb but it is only revving to around 2-3k...or just fast enough to get the wheel moving. It blows a fair bit of smoke as well.

I thought i'd check the head bolts to make sure they were snug...I know the previous owner "tried" to get it running so it makes sense to check anything he may have taken apart. It has been awhile since I worked on one of these...are there supposed to be only 2 head bolts? Or are 2 of the studs snapped off? I'm thinking low compression could cause my issues.
