Re: Ok, I give up. How do you start these things?!
Ok, none of that worked. Still no bueno.
I can hear the piston moving when I pedal in gear and it sounds like it's getting compression. If I push the primer on the carb enough, gas floods out so the carb is getting gas. I disconnected the kill switch completely so only the cdi is plugged in, black to black and blue to blue. There's gas in it and the chain has only around 1/2" of play. I've tried kicking it and riding it for about 100" with the choke open, halfway, and closed.
I'm real close to trading it to a neighborhood kid for cutting my grass.
