Finally remembered he took the rotor out to prevent theft?

Put the high tension lead back into the socket since pulling it to prevent theft?

Remembered the little switch under the dash was a cut out for the ignition?

Come on Hemmie...fess up.

Yea.
It was outa gas !
No really. I was getting fire and I was getting gas, so since I changed everything in the distributor, I thought FUEL!!!!!
So, I unhooked my gas line at the carb and drained my fuel cell. Then I put some new good gas in it and drained it out. Next I emptied the gas from the carb and changed the plugs(figured they were spent). Than I put good Cam 2 fuel in it and wallah! It fired right up. I think were it sat in the winter time, it caused the gas to either retain mousture or get gunked up????
Anyway, I got it. HG

Congrats on getting it started.
There was another post by someone asking how to get the gas tank ready for winter, you may want to contact him to give you the correct directions. Anyway hows it running now that you have it all cleaned out and ready for summer ?
Have fun until you have to park it for the winter,
keep the rubber side down.
Be safe, be cool, take the better half for a nice ride.
George

Now just think of all the winter dreams for spring! Great job, feels great to figure it out on your own. I think some of these folks gave you a couple of clues tho

You hung onto the Gremmie!!

Good to hear from you man. So, you had bad gas?? I even put that gas extender in my 2 stroke weed wacker and the lawn mowers too.. The gas now adays isn't as good as it once was. Lower octain and smells different?? Glad to hear you still got your Gremmie man, would have been a shame to sell it off !
