leg day..... was blown away with how dirty the inner's were, 1L of kero and a can of brakekleen later.... forks have only taken 120ml each and were weird to do as the spring dosent separate from the chrome inner tube so you have to fill the inner with the spring in it then put the outer on upside down to screw them with the 8mm Allen key, they are like upside down/standard fork hybrid weird italianness

took it for a brap up the road, very quick! until the fuel bowl empty... habe to suck on the vaccum line to get it to fill as the new carb dosent have a pick up to suit, will need to get a new petcock then I can start tuning very promising so far though

got it idling nicely and had a little go up the road, scoot wouldn't get to full throttle sounded like it was getting to much air like when you pull an air box off a standard scoot, did the old fingers over the carb yo see and nope needs more fuel air... changed the needle position and got about 3/4 throttle. ran around breaking it in for a 20 mins..... then held my fingers over the carb mouth to kill it and now it doesn't want to start.. fark 

left it over night and still nothing. has spark has fuel seems to have compression when I hold my finger over the sparkplug hole. pulled the head, gasket looks fine as does the piston and rings, pulled the reed valve and it looks like my crank is flooded... 

put it back together after cranking with no plug or reeds to empty it? still nothing so I'm stuck

do you have a compressor to blow into the crankcase if you think its super flooded?

nah I don't, will swing over to the neighbours and give it a shot.. the crank case seals are probably shot

strangest thing.. I pulled the plug again and kicked it over to test spark, nothing... I had been using another plug to test spark...it turns out my new spark plug died, so banged in the old one and fired straight away
