Carb - Pulled it apart, looks clean. Like barely run clean.

Piston - Barely any carbon on it, but cleaned off as much as I could.

Air filter - Pulled off, looks clean.

Fuel line - Replaced the fule line, tossed in a fuel filter. Oh, getting gas from the muffler when pedaling so guessing the gas is moving.

Haven't been able to see any spark thus far however which is where I think the issue is, but all the wiring checks out.
Ive recently had an issue with my new motor not getting spark has been corrected by replacing the magneto....10 to 15 dollar part from the vendors here.....history on this forum dictates that CDI's are nearly bullet proof and of the two parts to go out in the ignition its almost always the magneto.....was for my issue anyway....hope this helps
