'80 gl-100 no spark

it runs if you crank it enough when engine is cold, but don't like to do that.prior owner had a elec fuel pump and a 2 to1 carb installed on it.

You are saying no spark but then it runs if you crank it long enough. What makes you think no spark? Sounds like the choke isn't working.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

It came with a choke. Check the spark with a spark plug or something else you can put in the plug connector and hold close to a ground point.

One lever on each side of what? There is the petcock on the left side of the tank.

I see. Looks like it has a single carb conversion. And who knows what that valve is about?
