what is your response to above?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 10 months ago.

Can you remove the spark plug and see if you have spark when cranking? If it has spark, put a teaspoon of fuel direct into the cylinder, re-install park plug and see if it will start for a few seconds. If it does, no fuel is getting to the cylinder. Remove the fuel line at the carburetor and see if you have fuel flowing from the fule pump and tank.
