I hope you had a good nights rest I know it’s stressful sometimes can you set the points gap again and take a video again showing the points heal opening and closing. You said on post 64 you had set the gap

IT RUNS!!!

www.youtube.com/shorts/tBu1aKmtvyQ

I don't know what exactly was wrong, took everything off, put it all back together and the timing was much more in spec, then adjusted it to near perfect timing opening right at 1.8mm BTDC. squirted some fuel down the carb and it runs! Very smoky though. I did a 32:1 mix.
I hooked up the carb and its obvious I need to do some tuning on it but it still ran, still very smoky.
Won't hook the oil tank up for a while so should I go 40:1 or 50:1??? don't feel like starting an oil mixture debate, just was very smoky, or are these engines just smokebombs when cold? 

Thank you everyone for all the advice and help! Time to tune it in and get it running reallllll nice

That's AWESOME! Very happy for you that you got it sorted out! As for the smoke, did you oil up the top end too much when you put it together maybe.

I'd leave it on 32-1 but that'll kick off the debate haha. I used to use 40-1 castrol mssr in my KX125 "86 back in "86 & "87 but not relevant when comparing to an old trail bike. Actually no--mssr was when i ran methanol, so think it was castrol TTs back in "86, or something fancy anyway.

It won't stop smoking untill its had a good work out & even then the exhaust could be lined with oily deposit so will smoke untill the cows come home unless you heat the pipe hot enough to burn it off. Go by how the plug looks after a 'good' ride--not exhaust smoke.

CONGRATS!!!  Yea 32 to 1 is fine you can get some smokeless oil to premix and run down the highway. If you haven’t changed the brake shoes do before you ride it 50 yr old shoes can and have become delaminated and you could go flying over your handlebars

I think I oiled the hell out of everything just out of caution, didn't even think of that. Most likely will be that. I'll let yall know if it clears up or not.

Thanks for all the kind words! I'll keep 32:1 until I can test the oil pump and see if it works and how to calibrate it... visually looks to be in almost brand-new condition so I might get lucky.

I tore the front and rear brakes apart, cleaned everything out. Working on old landcruisers my whole life I'm used to front and rear drums yet have never heard of them delaminating? I'm assuming they would look funky or off. My shoes looked fine, felt fine. Cleaned them up and put them back together.

Today I will focus on tuning it in. The fuel petcock was pissing fuel everywhere when I first filled it up. Ordered a rebuild kit for it but that'll arrive in a week and I didn't want to wait that long so I just took it all apart and RTV'd the living hell out of it. Doesn't leak at all now! Whenever the kit gets here I'll clean the hell out of the RTV mess. I think my carb is leaking a tiny bit of fuel now aswell, don't know if its the gasket at the bowl or if my fuel line is too big... Will dig into it and find out! Finished my last college exam yesterday so now I got all the time to spend on this until I head home for Christmas

When I got my CT1C several years ago it would run but I decided to check everything out before I rode it took the rear wheel off guess what the shoes fell out they were delaminated I’m sure other members probably have some horror stories too just be safe
