Anyway now the bike does not have any power. It starts fine idles fine but I cant even ride it up my driveway without having it pined in 1<sup>st</sup> and walking besides it when before I could get up my driveway in second no problem also, it sometimes cuts out. Iíve checked spark and fuel and itís ok. The only think I can think of is the ignition, but Iím not to familiar with points ignitions. Anybody have any suggestions? Thanks

This isn't a dig at your mechanical skills, BUT, when that kind of thing happens to me I go back and revisit everything that I have touched or was even close to.

Bumping wires, pinching hoses, not reconnecting cables correctly....I have done all of those. The bike on the other hand has never broken all by itself during the time I was 'fixing' it.

New float? The float level is prolly too low... Just a guess from way out here.

Captain Yesterday ... is it smoking? did you pull the plug and look/sniff it? if you touched the carb then why would you think ignition? how does modifying the float affect timing or spark? based on what you've shared I'd go back and revisit the float.
