I've just completed a complete restoration of a 69' Barracuda Egg Motor but am having trouble getting the ignition timing set so it will start. I have spark, the points ae gapped properly and it appears the points are opening at he appropriate time (at the A on the Magneto) Does anyone have any suggestions?
I don’t like starting fluid- but perhaps a squirt down the carb to assure you are getting fuel?
Is the spark nice and ‘hot’?
It should at least start even with the Timing off a bit.
When I first picked up my latest ‘egg’, the then current owner couldn’t start it. Nothing. But I tried the old ‘full throttle’ and three kicks later it was running. Just holding the throttle fully open when kicking sometimes will work.
