So it won't start, just spins over. Will it start for few seconds if you put gas in the spark plug hole? Is this the two cycle engine or the later 4cycle engine.

Did you try putting gas in the spark plug hole to see if it would start for few seconds? If it does start by putting fuel in the spark plug hole, the carburetor needs to be cleaned.

THAT DID NOT WORK WHEN YOU PUSH DOWN ON THE GAS IT IS RUNNING BUT IT NEVER GO FASTER.
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
ITS RUNNING BUT IT NEVER PICKS UP WHEN YOU GIVE IT GAS.
Technician: Curtis B., Technician replied 8 years ago
It is not starting, all you have is just the starter turning the engine. If you have spark , it has to be a timing or a gas problem. It should not be out of time, so I would examine the carburetor.
