Ok I finally got this 110 home.  I got all the parts with it that were taken off.  I will take some pictures tomorrow and show you what I have to work with.  When I put it in the shed, it looks like the rear wheels are crooked.

Get us some pictures and maybe we can figure it out..

 

Over tightening the spark plug can strip out the threads also if it was seized in the head, the PO could have stripped them trying to get the plug out.

 Congats on starting your first restoration.Just remember,Take your time.When you try to rush through something that's when you make mistakes or you say I wish I would've did that.

Well said.  That's exactly what I learned from my recent restoration.  You catch so much detail when you take your time.

Just because the cigarette lighter doesn't work, don't throw it away. There is a small pin hole on the backside of the element, that contains a reset button. Unfold a paperclip and stick it into this hole to try and reset the button. Shouldn't take much effort to reset it. If after resetting it, the lighter still doesn't work, then the lighter is shot. I still wouldn't get rid of it, as the original lighters are hard to find or come by.

 

Good luck with the restoration, and remember to have fun. If there comes a time that you get frustrated, then walk away from it for a while.
