try spraying a VERY SHORT burst of starting fluid into the back side of the carb, if it '' hits '' off this ?, then its a fuel issue. if it does not '' hit '' this way ?, then its a timing issue or compression issue.
I have tried that. I think I found the problem.but.I didn't do the test right.I bought a compression tester and tested it today but I didn't hold the throttle wide open like I should have and maybe I should have put a little oil down inside the cylinder before I tested it.what do you think It only showed 30 pounds of pressure
