Any near this guy wanna lend a hand? Sounds like a carb adjustment problem to me. He is a little far for me. I know we have members closer than can help.

The engine turns over. He cant get it to fire off. He told me he is getting a spark at the plug and the carb is over flowing. I told him to clean the plug and kick it over a few times and recheck the plug for gas.

He has limited knowledge with bikes. I told him a generous MH'er in his area could probable give him a hand. I have visited several locations to lend a hand. I know they are plenty like me here.

if the float was stuck at some point, the crankcase will be full of gas. look for gas/oil seeping from the very start of the exhaust pipe (front side of the cylinder). that would be an indicator. Remember, it's two stroke. If you had problems at one point where it would NOT kick over, or felt as if it was hydro-locked, then again that would be the sign of a crankcase full of gas. It is possible to remedy this without tearing the whole thing apart, but it takes time, knowledge, and creativity. Whatever you do, don't check spark without a spark plug in the cylinder head - gas residue or fumes can make for a really bad ending. there are several other things that could be affecting the running of the engine as well, how much compression did it have?
