I do have a nice, blue spark, but I'm not how to check if the plug is getting wet. What I did before was I took a syringe without the needle and just sprayed a little of the gas from the petcock into the spark plug hole and that didn't make a difference. That's one of the reasons I'm wondering if the gas is really old.

I'm still learning so I'm nervous about pulling off the flywheel. I don't know where the pin is, I don't know what the condenser or the coil mount are. I've watched a few videos on timing the the only ones I could find were on Puch bikes which seem easier to access. I was hoping someone on here had some photos of their A3s to show where the points were so I could try cleaning them.
