Are you feeling compression when cranking? There is not too much else to check on a new motor. If you got spark, fuel flow, and compression, it should start up.
Ya, there is a noticable differance between turning it over with and without the spark plug in.
Trying to start it with 1/4 turn adjustments is probably your problem. Is there anyone in your area who knows what they are doing? Have you checked on HBF, there is alot of Baja guys in jacksonville.
About the 1/4 turn...huh? I'm sorry but I'm not following you here. How is that a problem? I've tried 1/4 1/2 turns and even very slowly turning the screw wile the motor is being turned over by a drill.
Does it Pop with the choke on?
If by "pop" you mean it's firing even a little...no, nothing at all. It only fired once it lasted less than a second. But if you are meaning does it have compresion...yeah it does.
....maybe its still flooded, those little 2cycles can stay flooded for a long time, and they will act like its not even getting spark, pull the filter, pull the plug cycle it a few times and let it sit for some time.
2cycle gas engines are much more reliable than a nitro, but two cycles are somewhat unrelaible gasoline engines compaired to 4cycle
No, it's not still flooded. I've pulled the plug and cleared the combustion chamber many many times. I'm at the point now that I'm going to have to just pack it up and leave it until I get paid (next month!) so I can afford to buy a new, better motor. Seriously my frustration with this thing is so high that if I touch it one more time and it doesn't fire, I might do something stupid. I'm no 2 cycle "mechanic" but I'm more than familiar with internal combustion engines, and the 2 cycle is a pretty simple design.By all logic this thing should run. I'm now just of the opinion I got an untested POS and call it a factory fluke or what ever, this motor just will not work and should have been tossed in the trash before being sent out to the customer.
I also really, really, REALLY hate the idea of spending one more red cent on the POS factory 28 cc engine that is barley powerful enough for the car and can't really be upgraded much due to the 3 bolt head. Especially when a NEW/ TESTED 30.5 cc is in the 200 buck range. And a new motor will most likely come with some kind of real customer support.
