I took the engine all apart to check and see why I wasn't getting any fuel last week. As it turned out, I applied WAY too much form-a-gasket, and it blocked off my transfer ports!
So I got that all scrapped off and applied a nice thin layer of Toyota's finest gasket in a tube.
The engine is all back together, and I tried to start her.... still nothing.
I've got spark, compression, gas, and all that jazz.
It's got me pretty discouraged. two minutes ago I was in the middle of typing out a FS add in the buy sell, but no... I don't want to give up just yet. I'd really like to get this thing running.
My dad thinks that because of the boost in compression, and it being a 2-stroke that it will need to get to really high rpms before it will start. I pedaled my ass off (again) but it doesn't seem to be enough. He offered to give me a tow behind the car, but I just can't believe that the rpms would need to be so high that I can't even pedal start it.
I know there has to be some magical-motobecane-modding-guru out there that know what the hell the trick to getting this thing running.
