Thank you Pat Splat, Joey P, Jai Dot, Aaron Blair,

Thank you for your comments and suggestions.

So last night I pulled the new carburetor off and replaced it with the old one after disassembling it and giving it a deep cleaning (less the air filter). Spaying starting fluid directly into the carburetor and into the cylinder via spark plug opening. It ran for 10 seconds (the time it took to burn the starting fluid). I repeated process but only got choking and coughing, but not starting. It was getting really close to starting, but not. Pretty much the same results not using starting fluid just applying the choke and peddling like heck. But the fact that it did start for a short time can I assume that wiring and grounding is good.

Almost like my timing got off center?? But I don't see how that could be because it ran somewhat okay just the other day. Maybe something with in the ignition? Compression? How can I trouble shoot compression / ignitions issues? Better question is should I trouble shoot those areas? Once again I feel obligated to mention am a novice at this and my comments and questions may not be on target.

All comments are useful, because I don't know what I don't know.

Thank you to Moped Army folks and everyone have a productive day.

Earl
