i have a 6 pin cdi box and i noticed a red wire had been ripped out of the connector would this be my problem, also would pick-up gap or something be a contributing factor?

hey i reconnected the wire and im getting spark but im not sure how to actually get the wire back into the connector, its just touching.

Are you getting spark at the end of the spark plug?

ya im getting spark from the plug i got it to run for about 5 seconds today i had a brain blast and poured some oil down the manifold sense it started to sound like low compression yet its a new engine? so poured the oil and the sprayed some gas in after i cranked it with the oil and it ran for a few seconds off the gas i put in, so now im wondering if the valve clearances are too tight or may something else be wrong? maybe a topic for the engine forum?

i put the carb on and it runs but now i need to find the kill wire the key and the kill switch have no effect and it may be because one of the wires in the cdi is loose?
