Engine is not starting. Just battery turning engine . Is this twin cylinder engine? Do you have spark to the spark plugs? Remove spark plugs and with one grounded to the metal of engine, see if you have spark when cranking. If you do, put a teaspoon of fuel direct into the cylinder or cylinders, and re-install spark plugs. See if it will fire for a few seconds, If it does not, the engine may be out of time, if this is the twin engine. It has a timing belt that may have slipped or broken
