I rebuilt the carb as you advised. It took me a long time to get a kit because no one had one around here. I have new gas, new plug and still no go. I removed the plug and it was dry, so I put alittle gas in the plug hole and tried again, no go. What do you suggest I do now? Thanks Lee
ANSWER : Check to see if you have spark. This is done by removing the spark plug, connecting the wire to it placing it plug against the metal on the motor and pulling the starter cord. It is best to do this where the light is not bright because what you will be looking for is a spark on the spark plug. If there is a strong spark then that is good and will start it if the fuel/air ration is right. I hope this helps.
