She runs!!!! smoothly i might add and goes in to gear beautifully. i feel like a real numbskull with all the great help here and on the facebook page. after going back and forth between is it a carb issue or ignition issue and fighting with equipment that i figured was cheap and didnt work or i was just using it wrong. But this morning I put the spark tester back on and tested it again,i got bright spark on the top but nothing on the bottom, so i took the flywheel off AGAIN and checked over everything, removed the lower cyl coil and snipped a little off the end of the wire and stuck some dielectric on the coil end put the coil and wire back together. Rechecked the point gap and cleaned the contacts, reassembled and whola a bright blue spark on the bottom cylinder. Just tested in the barrel and runs great.
