That's a crummy brand.

I put it on my back of my bike. I just happen to ha e a bike that had
a braket that worked to put it on ther. Welk after i had it all set
up realized that its upsidedown.. And it was firing and a few times
acted lke it was going to start... But never did... Now it is on the
left side mounted on the bike..i spun the carburetor on it thinking
it would work that way... But still failed to start... Thus is the
firstbone i have made.. So any ideas on what i need to do... I tried
everything.. Cleaned everything... Still has spark..tried spraying
gas in the carburetor.... Anyone have ideas... Please let me lnow

Get an Echo.

There is no such thing as "upside down" for a 2 stroker. Just the
carb (if it is a float type)

If you have compression, fuel and air in the right ratio, and spark it
will run.

The only issue with "plug down" installation is it is easy to
wet-foul the plug
