  1. No it hasn't been taken apart. He did nothing to it. He told me it was getting spark and wouldn't hit off starting fluid. He said he was just riding across a field and it died on him. That does sound like timing issue to me. I verified all the things he said and then I checked timing and it was off twoteeth and the tensioner was no good so I ordered them. Installed then And it's doing sane thing. I'm gonna find a way to see if it's sparking on time.
  2. It's not out of time. How would I use a timing light to see if it's sparking at the correct time? Or how would I go about checking it?
  3. But would the valves hit if it was 180 out of time?
  4. You know what.. I think it is 180 out of time lol. I was thinking I was checking it on compression stroke but I bet it was on the power stroke bc now that you say something, I did have to turn it a little too far after it blew out air.. And I didn't check to make sure I was at tdc when I put it in time. But if the mark is right on the crank the piston is up.. Hmm. Thevalves weren't in the right position then.. I had it set right before I started taking it apart but I was turning it without thinking during their process. Thanks I'll check it out.
  5. I couldn't get a .003 under it now I've adjusted it and it's correct on intake side.
  6. Could they be too tight? And don't take guys word about it quitting on him into account he could've been lying.
  7. Hi all. I have a timberwolf 250 2nd that will not start.. I thought it was out of time bc the guy I got it from said it just quit on him. The tensioner had a nut welded to it and it was like2 teeth off. I installed new tensioner and chain and it still will not start. It has fire and it will not hit off brake cleaner. It has compression. Haven't put a gauge but I'm sure it will crank and run with what it has. I double checked my work and it's still in time. Spot on. Both valves move. I'm about to put a feeler gauge on them and I'll cone back but other than that any ideas?
