Default 1986 cr250 won't start

     

God do I need some help. Installed new hpi ignition system. Gets great spark now. Won't start, plug wet. Installed new float seat & set new float. No start. Has great compression from tester. Ordered new pwk carb. Can you guys think of anything else. This is driving me nuts.

Are you sure the timing is correct?

I agree with pawpaw.
You can check the timing without the engine running. Remove the spark plug, connect the timing light, spin the engine over with a drill connected to the flywheel with a socket, make sure the plug is grounded, check timing with timing light.

I've set it according to HPI instructions. Guess i'll buy a timing light.
