Hey everyone. Last post was too long. 79 vespa P200e sat for about 3 years. Have replaced everything electrical, removed, cleaned, & rebuilt carb, & it has compression (I think). not sure how much it needs. Can't get it to start (not even a pop). Totally lost. can you help me, please. I am pulling my hair out.

I would bet money it is probably your motor's seals that have gone bad from sitting over time. The good news is the seal kit is relatively inexpensive. But if you drop the motor, replace the seals, gaskets, cross, oil conveyor rib, bearings, and inspect your gears for wear.
