Hello Mark. Thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you. Did you drip gas on your spark plug, or into your spark plug hole?

just on the spark plug
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I dripped gas on the spark plug but not in the hole
Technician: Donald, Small Engine Technician replied 2 years ago

Thanks for your reply. Let's try something. Remove your spark plug, and put about a teaspoon of gas directly into your spark plug hole. Re-insert your spark plug, and try starting your engine again. Let's see if your engine will start up, and run briefly.
