Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, proposed preliminary tries (if have not been done):

  • • carefully remove the spark plug;
  • • check the burn color of the ceramic to the tip;
  • • cautiously perform a spark test;
  • • crank and note if fuel enters the combustion chamber.;
  • • try/run with the regulator temporarily disconnected.
