1985 maxi sport, kickstart, stock engine.
Got the engine rebuilt, timing set, carb jetted high ready to adjust.
The thing started first time. I'd hard wired it just to get a spark.
Runs okay, lots of smoke then dies when throttle is released.
Upon inspection we find oil in the exhaust and conclude that it must be the transmission oil. After replacing seals and bearings the engine is rebuilt and is doing the same thing again. Lots of smoke with the throttle open and dies when released.
Now the kickstart has jacked.
