Where to begin? Tom if you see this and I didn\īt thank you for your advice on the front wheel, Thanks! still having trouble getting the pin out, but that is the least of my problems. I drained the oil and replaced it, checked the spark plugs and cleaned them off(just a little oil residue on right one) Cleaned the carb by soaking it in mineral spirits for about 20 minutes(not sure if that was smart) let it dry out for over a week. Put a fuel filter on cause there is rust in the tank(When it ran, before the filter, could there be crap in the engine that is not allowing it to turn over and catch? If so, am I going to have to go in and clean the cylinders and what not?) Put in a new battery and the starter seems to be doing what its suppose to. I don\īt know if I screwed the carb up or am I overlooking something? To give a brief history as I know it, it did run a few weeks ago, didn\īt ride it for a week and wouldn\īt start after that,even when I tried to pop the clutch while in gear. I tried to do a tune up myself. Any thoughts as to what to try next?
