Another interesting thing its doing is when I go from the middle key position to the off position it kinda makes a weird noise and then is silent. Kinda like little clank. I can try to get it on video, anyone elses do that?

I tested kickstart without plugs in and it's a very smooth kick so I'm assuming it's just the compression I'm dealing with?

I'm going to ditch the newtronics for now and go back to points and try to get this electric start going

Guy (or anyone haha)

When i kick it over slowly i can hear air escaping, is that just my compression going through the valves or should i be worried about something else?

Im going to see if my head bolts need further tightening to see if that helps but not sure what else it could be.

That should be the compression releasing through the valves when they open

I know I can get a little fuel on my hand if i cover the carb intake while running it.  How bad is the fuel spray?

It just kind of misting out if you will, it seems wierd that it would go out the back of the carb and not into the engine? Could i have set valves or something wrong?

I think you are fine.  I know one thing I screwed up when putting my motor together was putting the time plate in 180 degrees out.
