Re: Can't get it running..... need help!!
The carburetor doesn't have to be perfectly level. In fact most installations will require a slight incline. You can accommodate for this by adjusting the float level.
The OP also asked about his rear sprocket and if it needs to be true. YES! Any wobble either horizontally or vertically will cause you problems. The sprocket must run true and be concentric with the rear hub. Chain tension and alignment is also critical.
