I just changed my head gasket on my 1991 Honda XR250L. Now that I have it rebuild, the bike wont start. I have made sure the piston is at TDC, the cam shaft is placed right. I dont know what is wrong. any...

Their are 2 different top dead centers/TDC ,one is TDC of Exhaust stroke and the other is TDC compression stroke . You must have the TDC compression stroke . At this point -both valvesare closed.  If it is TDC Exhaust stroke You will be @ a point where the Exhaust valve is just closed and the Intake valve is just opening.After you have established the proper relation of the crankshaft and Camshaft ,you must do ignition timing.

How do i tell a victa 2 stroke from a 4 stroke?

two stroke mowers will have a picture of a oil can on the fuel cap,if it doesn't it is most likely a four stroke.
four stroke mowers will have a fuel cap and a oil cap as well.

Oil in spark plugs

Four stroke motor = a sign that your rings are allowing oil to pass into the combustion chamber.

Two stroke motor = normal

Does my *** 49cc need 2 stroke oil i can only seem to find the engine oil.

Your bike has a four stroke motor, it does not use 2 stroke oil at all. Just use standard 10w40 motor oil in the gearbox. DO NOT use any synthetic oils or oils with "special" additives.

Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer?

How much engine oil does a 94 HONDA CR 250 2 stroke hold?

nearly evey bike has oil capacity on clutch cover near the oil filler, should say 1500cc or whatever. with a two stroke it's only gearbox oil so not much in yours probably a couple of pints, four strokes hols a lot more, always check level are filling and running for a few seconds, some oil galleries won't fill just by pouring in at the filler. you should have a dip stick or an oil level screw in the casing.
