Taylor came up here again this morning and we did a leak down ( well modified because I used the reeds as the check valve for the intake) but it was tight as could be.

The cam follower and the flywheel is definitely points and we managed to set it at about 20 degrees before tdc. And it started up. And the idle needs work. Sounds a bit rich but strong. The cam follower is rotated off the keyway alot. Taylor has a picture on his phone for our last placement. OMG give me a hpi mini any day but as long as the cam doesn't rotate it's ok.

How this thing ran so well with the keyway in is beyond my understanding. And why it stopped running with the fall off the stand is totally unfathomable.

But it's nice to have someone drive for hours and leave with a running moped. I'm still suspicious that it's running now is somehow related to the idea that if u put enough monkeys in a room with typewriters eventually the complete encyclopedia Britannica will emerge.
