greasemonkey2386 :

how does the spark plug itself look? it sounds like its either flooded or getting flooded by a stuck needle in the carb....i would start by replacing the plugs and taking a propane torch or something and putting the flame in the open spark plug hole to burn off any gas that is in there....start with that, if it still wont run we can address it further from there

JACUSTOMER-lq6r5fij- : The spark plug or good if I shut the gas off it will fire for a min
JACUSTOMER-lq6r5fij- : spark plugs are brand new if I shut off the gas it will fire up for about a minute then it'll die I turn the gas back on and nothing then I'll shut it off that it will fire
