I havnt don't a compression test since I don't have the tools. I havnt done a valve job since I havnt done one before and I don't wanna f it up. Don't even know wtf dwell is. The points are set at .016" I supose the timing could be off but I don't think it could be that bad.

The carb looks a little cheeseball so maybe I just need to rebuild it or get a new one

All the basics need to be checked / adjusted before adjusting the carb. It's the same with all engine manufacturers.
