If it really won't turn over it may be flooded and that may be a lot of your problem. Take the plug out and kick it and see if gas gushes out of the head.

no gas comes out of the head at all. i've had the plug in and out so many times to check and see if its even wet. when i kick it, no gas at all.

i can't understand it!

haha.

checked float height. as per the info online i could muster. 5/8 inch -3/4 inch, and that's where it lies. the bowl has fuel, and the plug has spark. i had the sucker running a week or two ago.

i was told the air screw to be turned out 1 and a 1/4
and to unscrew the slide screw quite a ways out. its almost as if, now, the plug isn't getting fuel. all jets are clear.

that's what i'm thinking.

i have a rough idea as to how to set timing.

any pointers?

could it be related to my points position?

Your points position is the timing but first set the points gap and then the timing. And if it's a '76 isn't it a TS instead of a DS? It probably doesn't matter about the points, probable the same anyway.

well aren't you a load of factual fact.

just found out tonight from the seller, that the bike is a '78... i could not find the serial number for the life of me... save for a frame number.

at any rate, all i would have to do is rotate the points plate? to adjust the timing?

because i've already gapped them

If the gap is correct the points should just open when the timing marks line up. You can use something like a .0015 feeler gage or the plastic off a pack of smokes to put between the points and when it slips in them it's close. There is a mark somewhere that lines up just before the points cam opens the points.

i had this thing running a month ago, and now, nothing.

i kicked it over, and it revved out like it was rich after about 2 seconds.

i then push started it down a hill, and it was turning over, maybe even burning some fuel, but revved very lightly.

i have spark, i have measured float bowl height, bowl has fuel.

could it just be carb screws? i have an '80 yamaha with a very similar carb and i tweaked that just fine.

god bless, any ideas folks?

have you checked the compression? also could be crank seals leaking so that the bottom end isnt making the compression it needs to get the mix to the top end....

things to check...

More than just the jets must be clean in the carb, all the passages must be clear. Carb cleaner and blowing everything out with air helps. I had a '71 TS250 I couldn't get to run right for anything, somebody changed the needle out for who knows what, put in the correct one and ran like a top.
