The first thing that you must do is take the carburetor off and clean and rebuild the carburetor with a complete carburetor repair kit. When and engine sits for a period of time, the gas tends to turn to gum and varnish in the carburetor and restricts the small passages in the carburetor. This does not allow the fuel to get to the engine. This is almost always the cause of a no start on engines that sit.Please give me a good rating as this is the only way that this site pays me for my time.Feel free to contact me again if you need more information.
