Not sure what I was doing wrong, or just not doing, but it’s running again. But no better than before. Set it roughly 3/4” to right of notch like the wiki article shows for pug timing. Sounds decent on the stand, but gutless under load.
Next step is checking compression and more than likely down jetting. Just replaced carb with 15/15 sha with a 68(I think) jet and exhaust with MLM pipe.
Unless anyone has other input on what to check next???
