I wouldn't have bought it if it didn't run. Seller told me a 50:1 mix, it's what I measured out and filled the tank with. Fuel flow is fine, seller came over and checked - he works on cycles but I've pestered the guy enough. Forgot to mention, after attaching the green wire from the magneto to the terminal block, it would turn over and start stalling out after 5 seconds. I found the fuel line had come off the carb (no wire clamp) but reattached. That's why it was originally believed to be a carb issue. (edited)
