If you remove spark plug and ground it, do you have spark when cranking?

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.

If you have spark, put finger over spark plug hole and see if it has enough compression to move your finger.

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.

If it has spark and compression, put a teaspoon of fuel direct into the cylinder, re-install the spark plug and see if it will start.

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.

If it does, check the fuel to the carburetor.

The xg-sf2000e is in a plastic case so that would be difficult given all the wires

Can you get to the spark plug?

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.

If not, you will have to remove the covers!
