Haven’t gotten it quite started yet. Went through the carbs and they cleaned up very well. Bike is all assembled, new battery, cranks nicely but no fire. I can smell fuel, and have 140psi on a cold compression test.
spark seemed inconsistent. One plug wouldn’t fire, but if I swapped plugs it would. I could get a fat spark using a screw driver in the boot but minute I hooked a spark plug up…nothing.
tested the condenser and not getting the values I should. Paused to do some research.
I did squirt some marvel oil in the cylinders and let soak a few days before all the cranking. Should be well lubricated.
im comfortable around a fuel-injected V8 with all the computers and such, but these old carbs and points are new territory and I’ve learned a lot these last few days. I’ll get it running soon….
