Ok, I'm still trying to get the thing started (new build). I have checked the firing order, it is on the dizzy CCW. I'm setting it on the compression stroke 10 BTDC. I'm getting a back fire through the carb. I have checked twice to make sure I'm not 180 out. I pulled the valve cover and when I'm on #1, both valves are closed (compression stroke). I'm getting kinda frustrated.

Any ideas?

again i think you need more adv on your dizzy, make sure your battery is well charged so you dont load it up on any more petrol. dosnt sound to seriouse yet so i wouldnt stress!
