I tried to start the Amphi this evening. It's geting fire, it is
getting fuel. It kinda tries to start, but farts through the carb and
refuses to come to life. Any ideas?

It is probably something simple...

2 deg last night, 65 tomorrow! I love Colo!

Check to see if the correct spark plug wire is going to the correct
spark plug. Amhicars don't like to start if its wires are crossed. I
just had the same problem. Put new plugs in mine & crossed two wires.
It did not like that & it let me know it. Ray

Did you take out the distributer? I do not know if I remember right, but I
have in mind the distributer shaft can be installed 180 degrees wrong in the
engine. No problem, but you have to change wiring then. Just an idea.
Ren?
