Ok I am at the point of being ticked off. I have gone through everything.....again. I understand that if it is getting fuel and getting spark and the timing is right that it should fire and run like a champ. Well I am obviously missing something.
I have spark!! seen with my own eye and two others now just to verify I am not crazy.
I rebuilt the carburetor. Fixed the fuel leak which was the float not pressing the needle enough into the seat. (the measurements that came with the kit were wrong! Grrr...)
I went through the valves again. Making sure I was TDC #1 on the compression stroke (air moving out and then turned it to align with the mark on CS pulley.) Then gave one full turn so #4 was TDC. Odd thing is the valves were very loose from the last time I did this. The top of the valve stems are flat but the point on the spring caps are all angled??
Anyway, when #1 was TDC checked the points and they are open and .020 That should mean the timing is correct??
I put a new coil on it. Pulled all the plugs and sprayed some starting fluid in each chamber.
Put four brand new plus in it.
Will not fire, not even a for a nano second.
Can somebody explain the fuel delivery process in great detail. How is it distributed to each cylinder from the carburetor fuel bowl. Also, can someone explain the workings of the governor etc. Any and all help appreciated.
One other thing. I have not done a compression check yet. Helping my brother move and the gauge is packed up somewhere, nowhere to be found. I went to harbor freight and bought an engine compression kit and none of the fittings are even close to the right size for the plugs in the Super M
