Hey thanks alot Yama, Got it all together and started it.. seems to be running a bit ruff wont stay running with out giving it some throttle and i think its only running on 2 of the 3 cylinders right now. I have fuel but no spark and Compression is 120-125 in all 3 cylinders, So i have to test the coils tomorrow an buy 3 new spark plugs and figure out why my clutch isnt engaging..

well today i went out to take another look and now its firing on the center cylinder but not the 2 out side ones.. Last night it was the clutch side cylinder not firing but the center and the right hand cylinder was firing... I have spark on all cylinders, so i dont know. any thoughts??

thought timing or to much gas? spark plugs are wet from gas..

Well if you have spark on all three they are all firing. Maybe some carb work? Flooding out the cylinder?

best case hope for saturated plugs or cylinders. you may let the cylinders air out a bit before using the new plugs. if your in a hurry, torch the fuel out.

although rare, its not uncommon for some cranks to go out of phase. not brand specific at all but more the nature of the 2 stroke design.

quick way you can check yours to rule out a timing or crank phasing issue is to simply use a wooden dowel, welding rod, or anything thats straight and rigid.

using the clutch side cylinder as a guide line, roll the engine over slowly until this piston comes to tdc. with this piston at the top, the center and mag pistons should be equal in depth from the top of the spark plug hole within .5mm of each other, +or - either direction.

anything beyond that may require some more accurate measuring or it could indicate a problem. dont sweat yet, other underlying problems can create the issue your describing. before chasing your tail, measure the crank.
