POINTS OR ELECTRONIC IGNITION?

RECENT HISTORY, SYMPTOMS BEFORE IT DIED OR WOULD'NT START?

!HAVE A FIRE EXTINGUISHER CLOSE, DO THIS PROCEDURE OUTSIDE >>NOT INSIDE!<<
POUR ABOUT EQUIVALENT OF 4---TWO LITER PLASTIC SODA BOTTLE CAP FULLS OF GAS DOWN THE CARB---REPLACE BREATHER TOP (IN CASE IT BACKFIRES AND FLAMES OUT)CRANK ENGINE, DOES IT TRY TO START? OR DOES IT START AND RUN FOR SECONDS. OR JUST SAME OLE DRY CRANKING, OVER AND OVER?

IF NOT, DO THIS: PULL A PLUG, GROUND THE PLUGS BODY TO ENGINE, TURN ENGINE OVER, DO YOU HAVE A GOOD SPARK?

WE ARE TRYING TO DETERMINE IF IT IS AN IGNITION PROBLEM OR A FUEL PROBLEM

PLEASE GIVE RESULTS AND WE WILL TAKE IT FROM THERE
