I will test by spraying a combustible into intake, just haven't yet. I have a hunch that it will fire due to the sputtering mentioned earlier. Later in the afternoon, I tried cranking it over. The engine cranked normally but no fire, like no more residual fuel available. I did go out and rent a fuel pressure gauge but it was too late (dark) to run a test. I will do so in the AM and report back here with the results. Thanks for the reply, talk to you soon.
Ran a fuel pressure test and it showed 0 PSI with the key in the ON position. Tried to spray carb cleaner/ crank motor by myself with no results. I will try and find an assistant for another attempt tomorrow.
