Default O.S. GT 33 troubleshooting

I have one and it ran very rich as expected. Killed it a couple of times to see how easy it restarted. It did just fine.

I decided to take the cowl off so I could lean it out a touch.

It has never run again. I have cleaned the carb.

If I choke it and try to start by hand to many times gas will drip out of the carb and the engine is flooded so its getting fuel.

Next, I tried my starter with the choke open as the directions so to do. Nothing.

I checked the plug and it is sparking. My ignition battery is fully charged and is an A123 6.6 volt 1100 mah which should be good.

LS and HS are 2 turns out like the instructions say to do.

Everything screams spark to me.

I'm Stumped. Thanks for any ideas.

I'm leaning toward an ignition problem of some sort. We know it's getting gas. Could be a bad plug? Maybe taking the cowl off did something to the boot or ignition box wire? You said it had spark but this was with the plug out so the plug wire would be in a different orientation.

New Ignition same problem. I checked the carp again and it is good and clean. Removed the muffler and the chamber was full of full. Spark plug was dry. Almost like a port or something is clogged.

I think it is time to send it in for a check up.

Thanks for the idea.
