Hello everyone. I've acquired an older Cole's Hit and Miss model engine. While I've gotten it to fire a few times (It actually ran for about 3 seconds once!) I am at a loss as to why I can't get it running. It's certainly capable of running but it looks like I need some help. For all I know about small engines, I'm thinking it's the mixture as everything else is consistent. Exhaust valve timing looks right and I'm getting a good spark at about TDC. Compression seems low but not low enough to keep it from running at times. Any suggestions?
