Ok, you guys aren't gonna believe this (because I sure as heck don't) but, as I was taking off the cap, something inside caught my eye, or should I say DIDN'T catch my eye. The damned tab inside the cap for the #1 cylinder was missing! I got a new cap, reinstalled everything and fire the motor back up. Viola'!! No more pop through the carb and the timing mark now lines up!! Any of the pros seen this and can explain why the missing tab made this all happen? Here's a pic of the motor on the run stand! (hopefully!)
