Started riding to wrk again today and it was great. I think I like riding to wrk way better then driving. It is more peaceful except for having to watch out for the 3000+ lbs bike killing machines. other then that just waiting for the Gt Lts frame to arrive to start building it gonna order the motor soon Either a starfire pk80 or skyhawk gtb cnt decide tho.

imma still riding have made a few changes in the last week. put sum JB stik on the chain pulley to stablized it more and to fix a small dent in the frame. had thought about switch the whole kit to anuther frame but changed my mind after doing several measurements. the motor would fit BUT would have to remove the breather for it to that aint gonna happen lol so imma either sell or trade it sumtime this week and just keep it on the ol' huffy frame

That hub clamp setup looks pretty good. Can you get the fat chain on there?

The fat kit chain fits perfect; I opt to use an upgraded #41 chain which also fits perfect.

Bad fuel, wiring issue, fouled/ failed spark plug, spark plug wire, crap in the carburetor clogging up the fuel jet.
If you are not running an HT engine, then yes, a sheared woodruff key on the flywheel could cause what you are experiencing. If you are running an HT engine, I highly doubt that you sheared the woodruff key on the mag rotor. That said, some folks have found that the key was never installed by the factory or that it was at least placed on the shaft but pushed out upon installation of the rotor and found it magnetically stuck to the back of the rotor. Either condition can let the rotor rotate on the shaft and throw off the ignition timing.
