my truck will not start.
so hears whats happened, last weekend it died at the sheep sat there 4 a wile. the carb was burping like i got gunk in there. which is understandable cuz awile back i got mud sand water and everything in my tank. so i got my truk from the sheep it started up no prollem. drove it home than drove it to a buddy's to replace fuel line fuel filters and carb gaskets. got that done and started it up it was runnig fine for a few minutes than just died. so we got to messin with the carb than realised all of a sudden we had no spark.....
so repladed coils coil mod's and still nothin. but every periodically we will get a tiny little spark.
a buddy of mine thinks the carbs fucked and if i put a rebuild on it it will solve my problems.?.?
any input would be GREATLY appreciated

how does junk in the carb stop spark?
may want to check the cap and rotor for carbon tracking.

i had a simialar problem with my cheap truck. I took the cap off and the rotor was all bent and mangled so i would only get faint spark.

messing with the carb is not going to fix your lack of spark. Are those things points ignition? If so could be the condensor, get that a lot on bikes, condensor goes, weak or no spark.

I dunno either, if it's points and condensor, change em out, they're cheap. Do those motors have a regulator/rectifier? When they are faulty you will get a spark that fades away as you crank it.

Did ya hook up your electric idle control? Not that it will affect your spark issue, but it should fix the carb issue. bypass the plug and run it straight off the battery and see if she runs, spark permitting.
