Engine in and running, however cannot get it to idle, also seems to have constant misfire, gonna get a compression test done today if i can find my tester!



You are over thinking things again.


If it ran OK in the P100 why will it have dropped compression because you swapped the engine over ?? It can only be the carb or the timing.


Even though the old carb isn't what you want, for now put it back on, removing one potential problem.


Get the timing set either buy beg or borrow a strobe.

I did the original flare on the copper pipe myself (so could easily be the problem) but I have chopped off the end and done it again.

Are you sure you put the correct flare on the pipe, solid, copper pipe , to the flex needs a double flare making a concave shape to the pipe. a single flare leaves a convex shape.
