I'm not going to make a call unless I know what exactly what we are doing here. I don't want to spend 1/2 an hour on the phone with you only to tell you that you have to take it to a dealer, and you refund my fee. What is it you are looking to do here? How can I be of help to you?

This is what I see from you

engine crank ok, it will not start. It seems like it no getting the spark. Where is the air intake. It is 30hp four stroke.

Is your only question where the air intake is, or did you have other questions on top of that?
