Unhappy 1934 Stover CT2, 575rpm, 2HP!

Just got my first 1934 Stover CT-2 Hit n Miss. It is "red", and looks like factory paint. All the holes in the flywheels are round not tear dropped. New to Hit n Miss but have collected old chainsaws for 25+ years! Time for a change. I cannot get it to run more than just Hit and thats it.... need help! I have ordered new plug, Manuals, Vent Seal, Rocker Arm Spring, Crank Handle from HitnMiss. Mag has good blue spark but I'm not sure the timing is correct. I'm waiting on the manuals to check the adjustments on the exhaust valve and spark. Should I open it up and check the governor? Engine has good compression as it will wear you out after about 6 or 7 attempts to start! Also the choke plate has no hole in it and I have noticed most of these do...hum. Engine floods like crazy! The person I bought it from said her husband used it as a show piece and to make Ice Cream, hasn't been run in about two years. Is there any help?

I had a throttler Stover. As far as flooding. I'd usually close it. Turn it one or two times over. Open all the way. She'd pop and start off and I'd regulate choke to keep her running....... Timing may be off like you say......

Were you able to get this running? Post some pictures of it if you can as I'd like to see what you have.
