did you put the plug wires in the right order on the dizzy cap? you can move your dizzy back and forth to mess with the timing also.

we got it to start, but it wont stay running, it boggs down alot when u give it a lil bit of gas. and backfires a lil bit

we fixed the timing, but now it wont start, or if it does it only stays on for a sec. u can smell that it gets gas but i guess it doesnt get spark, were cahnging the spark plugs and wires today, but i will need instructions on how to use a timing gun, and i need to kno how to hook te wires into the dizzy to make sure, thanks
