I bought a model M back in sept. runs like a damn aslong as you have the choke on and a piece of tape covering 90% of the air hole. I painted it made it all nice and shiny looks great. Now i cant even get it to fire. I have tons of gas if i really want to i can make gas poor out the exhaust pipe.. ive made the gap bigger on the plug it makes a nice whiteish/blue spark. Has great compression after turning it over for ten min your arms are ready to fall off.. I even hooked a 1.5hp electric motor let it turn for 20min not a whisp of smoke once in a while it will make a whisp of white fog when you give it alot of gas and thats it.... Any ideas???? I guess i should have left it rusty and trusty now its shiny and whiny

A GOOD SPARK OUT OF THE HEAD CAN BECOME A WEAK OR NO SPARK UNDER COMPRESSION, CLEAN ALL CARBON AND FUEL/OIL RESIDUE FROM PORCELAIN AND CONTACTS OR CHANGE PLUG AND CHECK TIMING

Turn the fuel completely off and crank it a few times. If you have that much gas coming out the exhaust it is flooded.

Is the mag firing? Did you paint the holes in the head where the spark plug screws in? Have any parts off it when you painted it? Is the mag case ground to the engine good?
