I just got an old chappy 50cc.
I cleaned the carb really well, replaced the spark plug.
When I kick it over I HAVE SPARK! ANd there is good compression. However it does not start? I even tried pouring a little bit of gas directly into the carb. Nothing. I tried taking oit the spark plug, puring a tiny bit if gas in there and quickly replacing the plug and kicking it over......I thought that would at least ignote that little bit of gas, but nothing?
I DO NOT have a battery installed, the toggle kill switch on the right side handle bar I tried all 3 positions and no change.
I am surprised, especially if there is spark and fuel in the chamber, should it not at least ignite that fuel?
Do I need battery installed to start it?
Could it be my kill switch?
Thought and thanks
