Just a word of advice from a non-expert based on my experience. When I re-assembled my bike after an engine re-build by Tim Sharp, I set up the points and kicked it over – a single backfire only. Kicking would just not get it going. The first check was to remove a plug and check for a spark – a very big fat one. Put it back and a few more kicks and still no effect. I then got the idea to switch over the HT leads – it fired up first time!!!
It sounds as if you have a bit to do before you get to this stage,
All the very best,
