– hopefully this can prove organic … comments and suggestions – correcting, extending
– an engine is basically an air pump – 4 stroke …  suck, squeeze, bang, blow
– add fuel, timing and spark = internal combustion engine
– break this system anywhere and you wont get much action

– so your engine turns over ? wont start
– what have you done ? what have you changed, altered, played with, unfixed ?
– air ? fuel ? spark ? …all in the correct ammount and moment ?
– don’t panic…turn the key and petcock/s off, step back …take a breath-deep, go do something you really enjoy for a couple of minutes…

  •  fuses ? kill switch ?
  •  battery ? 12.6 V ? put it on charge, brushes ? check charging system
  • power to coil/s ? points spark ? plugs ?
  • filters ?
  • fuel to carbs ? bowls ? cylinders ? floods ?
  • compression ? leak-down test ?

·

  •    adjust your cam chain … can readjust warm once you get her running
  •       set your tappets
  •       set your points if you have them .. plugs

 

– once you get this far she should be at least spitting and farting enough to attempt setting your carbs …

  • if she wont idle, look for air leaks ? atu ? massage her pilot jet circuits
  • once you can get idle, do the idle speed screw/pilot air screw dance
  • smooth transition through to full throttle ?
  • synchronise
