Customer Question

D100 does not catch. Motor turns over with key but will not start. Seems to be no gas to start. Just filled tank from about a 1/4 full. The amount of gas in the gas filter seems low not sure what the right amount should be.

# ***** in the above link is the fuel solenoid, does it click open as soon as the key is turned on? It plugs the main jet in the carburetor. and has to have 12 volts to open and stay open.

Will engine run for a few seconds, if you remove the spark plug and put a teaspoon of fuel direct into the cylinder?
