i think i have part of the problem figured out.

RE: timing
this is what one manual says: (and the spec i used)

"At this moment the piston should be 1,2 to1,5 mm
(7/64") before TDC"

another manual says

"ignition point 2.7 (7/64in) to 3mm (1/8in) before top dead centre"

soooo...... the only consistency is 7/64 which is 2.7mm - which is way more normal...

i was kinda wondering that .047" (1.2mm) btdc seemed way weird to me. 90% of 2 strokes i've done are timed .090" - .110" or so..
