Have you checked the compression?
I am not so sure that you have lost all your compression. You mentioned that it seems like it has no compression. That's why I asked. Have you tried starting it with starting fluid?
That engine is a fairly low compression engine in the first place, so it may sound like it has no compression when it cranks and cranks but won't start.
I am not sure what "large" is, but it will inject fuel while you are cranking, yes. It doesnt sound like your problem is a lack of fuel if your seeing it injecting fuel. Does the engine even act like it wants to start? How have you determined that you have spark?
Did you check for spark between the cap and the plugs using an inline spark tester?
Also, inspect the cap and rotor for cracks and moisture.
Ok. harbor freight sells an inline spark tester for pretty cheap. You plug it between the plug wire and the spark plug. Verify that you have spark at your plugs and inspect your cap and rotor.
Has it been raining where your at?
I am curious, have you tried starting it after letting it sit for a while?
I am going to opt out since my experience with that engine is rather limited. Hopefully somebody here has more experience with that engine and can send you off tomorrow with some better advice as to what to check for or what the issue at hand may be.
Hi, my name is ***** ***** should be no fuel entering the carb that high, unless you are pumping the throttle, have you pulled the plugs and seen if it is wet with fuel?
