Default Re: Finished build, won't turn over. :(

Welcome to the forum. I have two old friends in Collinsville.

Your engine needs three things to run.

Have you confirmed that you have these?

Fuel flowing from tank to carburetor? Remove fuel line from carburetor, open fuel petcock (valve) and see if fuel flows.

Choke open? Self explanitory

Ignition system functioning? Remove spark plug from engine, reconnect the high voltage lead then lay the plug against the cylinder head fins and spin the rear wheel with the clutch engaged. Look for a spark at the plug's electrodes.

Get back to us with your findings.
