    I just completely rebuilt the top end of my '72 CB350 engine and
    replaced the wiring harness. It ran before, but had a nasty oil leak
    and some electrical gremlins with the orignal harness. The new
    harness was unmolested and now everything electrical checks out fine,
    I have good spark, compression, and set the breaker points, and set
    the timing, but justcant get it to fire.

    Can anybody help?

  2. Re-check the ignition timing. Remember you have a 180 degree crank on
    the 350 and it is easy to get the points 180 degrees out of phase.

    Check that fuel is getting through.

    If you have correct timing and fuel and a spark, then I'd investigate
    whether you got the cam timing incorrect when you rebuilt the top end.
