Hey! So excited to finally have a moped. But I’m having some issues. I got it from my buddy and he said it turned over every time they tried it but it’s been sitting for a while. I’ve been pedaling like crazy to get it started, all it does it pudder, like it’s kind of starting and every once in a while it will do a louder pudder like it’s about to turn over. But as much as I pedal it won’t turn. I’m new to this and not sure what’s goin on, ive drained my knowledge resources and need help. And I’ve check the wiki, I dk how to troubleshoot my issue.

Here’s what I’ve done so far. Drained the tank, put new gas and 2 stroke oil, made sure the petcock? is working, it is. Checked the spark plug, it was wet and the engine seemed to be flooded. So I took the carb apart and cleaned it, put it back on, same issue. I check the spark plug to make sure it was sparking, blue spark. I noticed gas in the air cover, and some dripping underneath the carb, so I tightened everything down more. Also, it’s a rainy night, not sure if that affects it. I think it’s having flooding issues.
