my 1984 b2 wont crank, i just replaced the button, cap, wires, plugs, and coil. but when i turn the key it wont fire, it turns over and i have a spark ( i know this because i shocked the crap out of myself) but i wont start. then after a few seconds of trying smoke starts coming out of the carb. can anyone tell me what im doing wrong or how i can fix it? thanks
