Hi Chester, Thank you for your response. My apologies for not making it clear that there is no gas getting to the engine and there is also no spark. Although the primer kit sounds like it will help the past problems with cold start, there appear to be other problems that have not been present in the past. As I mentioned, I have put gas in the cylinders numerous times and spun the engine over for extended periods of time resulting in no sign of the engine firing at all. I have had an ignition problem in the past (no spark) but not in the last 10 years. It has been remedied by opening the gray electrical box in front and to the left of the engine and leaving it open for a day or two to dry out? This has not helped now. However, we have had very high humidity for the last several days.
This is a lot of information. I am very open to discussing this on the phone.
There is no corrosion in the electrical box. Everything is clean. The starter spins the engine over freely as it normally has.
