Absolutely, it was clean and completely dry before I started working on it again. And it hasn't left spot I been working on it,, I knew it was gonna be down a while , so I emptied the tank and carb, turned the tank upside down to dry out. The fuel that's in it, is regular pump gas , but it's not even 10 days old

Shot of starter fluid in the intake. If it fires, you have a fuel issue, if it doesn't, you have something else, probably timing.


Quick, cheap, simple test.

No change, shot some in there last night, pulled the valve cover , and my valve adjustment was super loose, adjusted them over the weekend, so I reset them, still no difference. I have a compression tester coming in the mail, it feels good, but knowing the numbers will be helpful

believe it or not, its NOT that uncommon of a issue,
they stretch and throw timing off, thus poor running /starting and such
