This is my first build, and I bought this engine second hand off craigslist. The guy said that it had never been run, but I'm wondering how I get these head bolts off. It's an upgraded head, but how did he even get it on there?

That is a puch moped head and he would have used a thin walled deep socket to access the head bolts!But may I ask why you want to take it off? looks very clean and solid to me!

I want to be able to inspect the inside of the cylinder and take the engine apart since I haven't seen inside of it yet. I'm currently trying to diagnose why it doesn't start, and I think the stock plug is bad and has no spark.

Well before you do that you will want to obtain a new head gasket if you haven't already,And you can check for spark without pulling it apart,If it has good compression and is getting air/fuel and spark your good to go!

I don't think it has anything to do with it being over 4 years old and definitely not that wrapped up wad of electrical tape, no, that's a professional electrical job it's probably a flat tire or something getting in the way.

no disrespect intended here, but for a person not familiar with thin wall sockets, it might be best to avoid taking motor apart until it is really needed - there are easy steps to follow here on the board for non-starting motors

We still don't know if it's a flat tire guys hold on and wait for the poster's response before suggesting those great threads that they should have looked at before posting.

Sarcasm and irony are often misused and over-used by amateurs, poorly received by all.
A quote I remember. is: "They think they are being witty when they are really being sh**ty".

I was new here once too, helped along by many of the fine members here.
I know you are trying to be humorous while helping, but it comes across as arrogant and demeaning.
I would think that is not your intention.
