Could you show me where your choke cable it running into your carb? Both holes on top of my carb are taken up my throttle cables. One for the oil, one for gas
Just to clarify, after cleaning your exaughst it did indeed run? I'm having the same issue. Good compression, measured with a gauge. Good spark, and starting fluid, and it just refuses to fire. My timing is good too, I'm not sure what it is

Wires could have gone bad causing a short, or could’ve simply been corroded and weathered so badly they split in half, if that makes sense. I believe however that it is indeed connected along with the ignition
Thanks I'll look into that!
Thank you sir for confirming that. I figured the wire thing out yesterday evening when I looked through my shop manual and found out i have everything that i need to get it to run except my rectifier (which is on the way.) However I am having one more issue, i cannot find the plug in for my CDI on the wire harness even though the wiring diagram in the shop manual clearly shows a CDI being plugged
Right now I am just focusing on getting spark. I cleaned my tank, and rebuilt my carb and ran all new fuel line so I believe I’d get fuel if I put some in the tank. But just focused on getting spark at the moment. I’m trying to figure out what components I’m missing, if I am missing any.
I removed the choke cable as I am trying to unseize it. And I do not believe I need the junction box as I got rid of the oil injection. I plan on simply premixing my tank myself
I believe it's normal for the line not to be full. It just trickles to your carb as needed, they don't need much fuel at all.
It was missing Coil, Rectifier, and CDI. Hence why I replaced them, probably should've specified that in my first post. When I kick it it does absolutely nothing except turn the motor over since CDI isn't hooked up. I believe I'm situated Fuel wise, i just need spark. And Bob Naske, does it need a battery in order to get spark? My 80' Honda XL80 is able to run everything straig
I recently bought a 1979 QT50 that had been sitting outside for 30 years. I've put a new top end on and cleaned out my tank and carb. I am now working on the electrical. Does anyone know what do I need just to get it to run, nothing else. So far I've got a magneto, coil, and CDI. I also have a rectifier on the way.
