Default Older thread, ideas on its not starting.

Hi Folks,
Read through this tread today.
Kinda mystery on the rear cylinder throwing flames.
Maybe miss timed, but then the front cylinder seems to run normal.
If the carb was messed up, the front cylinder would not run correctly.
My first guess is the rear cylinder cams problem.
Maybe the gears were miss marked for install?
