Cant get my new engine to start
I just replaced the engine in my earthquake 3.5 with an SH M21 P3 engine. Only difference is the cooling head is slightly bigger on the new engine and it had a different crank than the stock engine. I tore down the stock engine and swapped the crank into the new one and made sure all bearings, bushings etc were in where they need to be and everything is tightened down with Loctite where needed. I have the carb set to factory settings with about 1mm gap for idle, primed the engine, put the igniter on the glow plug but there doesn't seem to be any engine resistance to start it. I checked my plug and it glows bright.
What am I missing? I have blisters on my fingers from trying to get it to start the last few days
