I can't get the Honda GX200 engine on my DeWalt power washer

Customer Question

I can't get the Honda GX200 engine on my DeWalt power washer started. It sat out in the rain last weekend, so I drained out the old gas, replaced the old spark with a new one with a gap set at .028 " and have tried cranking it several times after checking to see if choke was closed, fuel line open, and throttle setting 1/3 open. It has always started on the first or second pull before with nothing but a pull or two on the starting rope. Any ideas?
