    New Points. Brand New Carb. New Coil. New Fuel. New Fuel Filter. New Spark Plug. Spark plug & points gaped correctly. Compressions 100+. Timing Is Correct.

    Yet it only sputters every once in a while, with choke.

    How does this make sense?

    I dont know. I have the same question.

    Any replies would be greatly appreciated, kinda stuck in a rut.

    Actually yes a lot of people use it.

    Have you checked to see if your pumping gas to the carb? Have you tried a little gas in the carb to see if it runs?

    Ok, so now i jhave discovered that i have put the negative to the positive and positive to negative, my fault i guess, but the wire was red and i put that to the positive, only reason i found out was because i was looking around in the manual. could this have fried the coil or condeser?
