Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially and if have not been tried; inspect the battery & ground lines and/or check/clean the battery cables + terminals, connectors and wiring as a preliminary consideration. Have the battery externally charged and then LOAD TESTed (even if new and just for the purpose of eliminating it as a suspect).

Proposed secondary tries (if have not been done):

  • • carefully remove the sparkplug;
  • • check the burn color of the ceramic at the tip end;
  • • results would indicate:
  • - if black/sooty, then rich and/or vacuum leak issue;
  • - if oily, then an internal engine problem;
  • - if very light brown to whitish, then lean and/or an air leak concern;
  • • check if the tip is wet with fuel; and then
  • • cautiously perform a spark test;
  • • results would indicate:
  • - if not wet or overly wet, then fuel delivery issue;
  • - if no/weak spark then electrical/ignition concern;
  • • consider replacing the sparkplug(s) (even if new and just for purposes of eliminating as suspect(s).

The fuel pump does not prime..not working ..the whining I get i can hear in the carbs ..have an idea why the whining
Expert:  Louie replied 1 year ago.

To my recollection, this model has a tip-over sensor that if engaged would halt the fuel pump operation through the fuel pump relay. If the pump is not working/priming, has this been checked together with the relay and pump itself? ...IGN+12V present?
