NO SPARK after rebuild

The bike was a basket case but ran untill it was hydro-locked and bent the crank. I do have a used flywheel and stator from e-bay. It's been a 5 month project and I'm so clo.....se:banghead: Thanks

I YZ timed it when reassembling so I'll double check the timing is correct. Would I get even a putter if the timing was off a tooth? I am not even getting a cough.

My guess it that it should run even if 1 tooth off. But you should be real close if the valves are not hitting the piston when you kick it over.
I would try a little shot of gas in the carb, but that's just me.

I pulled the timing cover off to double check the timing and At some point the timing ended up completely backwards. At TDC my cams were facing in toward one another. Double:bonk:.
I will reinstall tomorrow and try again. Please tell me I didn't do any irrepairable damage... please. Would the piston hit the valves if the open at TDC?

Wait a second - did you know that the crank goes around twice for every time the cams go over? Your cam timing should still be ok. I don't know what triggers the spark - it could be out of time.

I need to dial in the carb a bit but it is not too far off. Also need to put on my new sneakers, got a set of MX51s. I can't wait to get it out and really ride.
Thanks all of you for the helpful advise and guidence. I'm sure I'll need some more soon.
