do you have spark with the motor wired in the frame?
are the plugs getting wet or dry after it doesnt start?
is the choke working. is it an old carb with a butterfly style choke?

are the needles roughly adjusted and not closed?

you need air,fuel, spark and compression for a motor to run. what dont you have?

Pour some gas down each cylinder. About a capful. If it doesnt start on that then its a spark problem. Maybe a broken wire somewhere.

Well, I found it incredibly difficult to read that. I stopped after the second line. Having been a professional mechanic a long time ago, in a place far-far away, I could have had some suggestions.

well thanks for your help,but all I did was I took the original carb and cleaned it,when I was doing that i found an old bug in the carb gasket's so after I got that out I finished it up got it all back together pulled 1 time a whole bunch of gas was shot right up in the fuel filter 3 rd pull it fired right up and ran great,when the carb was on it before i cleaned it it wouldnt suck gas threw everything so that i cleaned it helped a lot[:D]
