1988 B2200 Cranks but won't start. Looks like I'll need to start troubleshooting tomorrow, using aerosol starting fluid or gasoline to determine whether issue is fuel-related or spark-related.

This has happened like twice in last 3 months but each time when I went to troubleshoot, it started right up, hampering my ability to diagnose !!!! D'oh !!!!

Started up fine several times Thursday.
A couple months ago, I leaned out the idle mixture on the Weber to help increase gas mileage like 2 mpg. I also adjusted the choke heater to make a little richer at cold start and the fast idle screw a tad.

So yesterday I moved the choke heater back to where it was, cleaned the spark plugs, checked inside of distributor, re-attached loose valve cover vent hose (to air cleaner).
Started up fine several times Friday.

So I still need to catch it non-starting to troubleshoot more....
