Good morning Trev, sorry for delay, my name is ***** ***** you for asking your question, I will try and help you out.

I just need to be clear on this,, does the engine turn over and not start,,, or no crank and just the fuel pump turning on with key on?

Do you have a test light or volt/ohm meter?

Please hold off rating until we get er done.

Motor cranks over well

Thanks for info.

First you need to pull plug wire off and install a old or new plug and set on engine block for ground,,crank over and see if you have spark,,if spark is okay crank over and then spray some carb clean in air filter and see if it will run on cleaner,,that will tell us if you are loosing spark or not getting fuel.

Remove line off after fuel pump and crank over to see if its getting fuel.

If fuel filter has not been changed lately it would be a good time to replace.

I'm getting off for today so I will need to know what the results are for this testing and we can go from there.

Please hold rating until we get er done.
