Look for the ign mark on the flywheel and if its a clockwise rotation d then viewed from the flywheel side measure approx 2 inches to the right of the mark and scribe a pencil line, now adjust the points to just be opening at that point and all should be working fine, if its flooding and getting wet check the float ahsnt punctured also by taking out straight away and shaking and listening for a sloshing sound inside, cheers jon
