Hello Norman. My name is***** will be happy to assist you. Are you familiar with the procedure used for checking for spark?
Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.
If you have some carburetor cleaner, in a can, spray a small burst directly into your carburetor. Let's see if your engine will start up, and run briefly. If it does, this will confirm that you are getting a spark to your spark plug. If your engine does not start, your ignition coil, or kill wire, may be at fault.
