When I first tried to get it going I did the usual, change oil and filter, new plugs, points, condenser, rotor, inside the cap looks good.
I swaped the carb for a know good one and put on a new sediment bowl assembly and flushed out the fuel tank, it was really grungy inside, not sure if it's clean enough. ???
Couldn't get it to run on it's own even by spraying carb cleaner in the carb. It will fire and try to run but when the starter is not turning the engine over it won't stay running.
I hooked up a 12volt battery to the starter both ways, positive ground and negative ground, starter turns same direction both ways.
I was able to get spark at the plugs, hooking the 12volt battery directly up to the coil, negative ground.
I want to hook this up the right way but don't know what way that is. ???
I don't want to spend a lot of $$$ on this as it is not mine and the fellow that owns it doesn't want to put any into it. Just get it going.
I figure to try again this time with a temporary fuel tank hooked up to the carb, check inside the carb make sure it's clean and hook up the ignition so I get spark at the plug.
Just wanted to know when it was made what was it, 6volt, or 12volt, pos or neg ground.
