The first thing I need you to do is remove the plug and wire and perform a spark test while cranking to see if your getting good blue spark which can jump up to 1/2 inch. Next remove the air filter and use a fuel source to see if the engine will start briefly on alternate fuel. Check these and report back.

You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle or equipment. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. I normally log in at 3pm and work late. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.

Thanks Chris
