Ya. It gave me a good jolt. Especially when I spun it a bit faster. I'll get a new plug and plug wire. And see what i get. The plug wire on this looks original. It's pretty old..

I've never done an engine like this. I'm pretty new to this. I have built many quick 2 strokes like west bends and power products engines. I've never had anything close to this old. And even then, I've never really had to mess with the electrical stuff too much. I usually start with engines that are pretty clean and I make em faster.

Thanks for all the help. Valves will be next. They are pretty nasty. But it has compression.... Exhaust valve was open when sitting for years.
