Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Does the engine turn, just does not start? There is a solenoid in the base of the carburetor, it has to open the main jet in the carburetor. Do you hear it click open when you turn on the key?

Yes the motor turns over and no there isn't a click when I turn the key on

There is electric fuel solenoid in the base of the carburetor, it has to click open as soon as key is turned on, it has to have 12 volts to operate. It plugs the main jet in the carburetor, if it does not click open, no fuel to the engine.

So I need a carb solenoid ?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.
Maybe, do you hear the solenoid click when you turn on the key? No click, no fuel. Does it have voltage to it?
