Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...Initially, a little more background info please:• has it been in storage for a length of time;• is this a sudden recent issue;• or slowly developing while in use;• any recent work, repairs or mods done.Still, the description of "...wont start. It turns over but wont fire..." could possibly be a fuel delivery issue and/or ignition related. Proposed preliminary tries (if have not been done):• test for presence and consistency of spark;• determine burn color of spark plug tip;• drain and replace fuel;• determine if fuel enters the combustion chamber;• check/clean the fuel path;• ensure vacuum integrity at the intake manifold.All other tests particularly for ignition would require the use of a volt/multi-meter.
