    Hello guys. I have taken apart the motor and clean the piston and chamber. Cleaned the carb and air filter. Cleaned my spark plug and even tried a new spark plug. The engine usually kicks over after 4-5, sometimes even more tries when I let the clutch out. I'm using regular gasoline with a 32:1 mix. I used to use 50:1 but that was months ago. I'm a newbie at this sort of stuff and any suggestions or advice would be great. Thanks for any and all help. :tt1:

    not understanding the problem - one usually pedals, lets out clutch while still pedaling, and keeps pedaling till it starts

    sometimes the choke helps, sometimes not

    pull the plug, connect it to the spark plug wire, hold it against the head fins, and turn over the engine to check for spark.
    do this inside the garage or at night time because the spark is weak.
