Hi, thanks for your response.
The engine does turn over and wants to start, but just doesn't quite make it. I'm not quite sure what you meant here, "open tap, tinckle the knob on the carb-bowl to make sure
no airlock is in the gas line."
but I did check that the fuel line was open. I got a new spark plug. Still not working!!!

do you hear/feel the motor rotating while tring to start?
(remove sparkplug if not sure to see movement inside)
btw model is MAXI or equal. (other wise you had kick start )
try this sequence. open tap, tinckle the knob on the carb-bowl to make sure
no airlock is in the gas line.
peddle or run untill motor picks up (gets in movement) [if needed use
de-compressor to get it rotating]
if all is working right it will start.
If not check sparkplug condition and report please

| ||Hi, I just purchased an '85 Puch (not sure which model), and I'm having|
some trouble getting it started. I thought it might be user error, as I
have no moped experience, but now I'm not sure.
Here's what I do:
1. Pull up choke.
2. Push primer button 4-5 times.
3. Put fuel petcock in on position.
4. While bike is on kickstand (or while I'm pedaling), I pedal and hold
clutch in and give it gas.
5. Nothing happens.
Any advice on how I might get this thing running would be greatly
appreciated. The guy I purchased from assured me it "starts right up"
and he ran it last week. I have added fuel, with a 50:1 mixture of two
