Its easy to time it, remove the side cover to see the megneto there you will find the timing marks T and F aligne it to T and thn remove the spark pulg to feel the piston if its on TDC (top dead center),
remove also the point plate and the rotor assy you will come to the camshaft sprocket ..there too you will see marks on the camshaft gear which should be to its mark on the head.If they align tht means the timing is ok i.e the valve timming , now u will have to set the igintion timming , by refitting the point plate and adjusting it clockwise or anti clockwise, set theengine to be on the firing stroke and get the plug out thn turn the engine keeping the igntion 'on' you should see sparks at the spark plug as the piston is going downwards.
Hope this helps!

hi mate you will see a screw pocking out the carb screw it in 1/4 of a turn and start it this is the idle screw which should bring the revs up a little good luck

Turn the adjusting screw all the way in until it LIGHTLY seats. Now back it out one and one half turns. Do the same adjustment for the throttle screw on the right side of the carb. You are now back to the stock factory settings.
Could you take a moment and rate my answer? Thanks!

Were the jets the same size? Just because the numbers were the same does not assure you that someone has not used a jet drill to enlarge them. Pull the low speed jets and compare them with the old ones, using a wire gauge or set of number drills.

Double check the float needle seat. Often a piece of debris will lodge itself under the needle. Check your fuel tank/fuel valve for debris or damage to the strainer screen on the fuel valve.
