Let's do this stuff outside, with a fire extinguisher handy!
Got fuel, or is it water? (Happened to me a couple of months ago!). Doesn't even try to act like it's gonna kick off?
Pour 3 Soft Drink capfuls of 100% fuel, from a fuel can into the carb. Try it, does it try, even a little better than before? If so, maybe it's water in your system!
Continue like this:
Check to see if you have spark
Pull a plug wire, off of a plug
insert a nail or paper clip or any conductive item, in beside the metal connector within the "Boot"
Hold the plug wire/ nail about a 1/4 inch away from the engine (metal). Have someone crank it over several times
Do you have a snapping/ popping spark jumping from the nail to the metal of the engine?
If no, we have an ignition issue, not a fuel issue
Insure you perform your tests correctly, a buddy's assistance is a real plus!
Want your results. Leave no detail out!
This will steer us the right direction
Are you "Capable" with a voltmeter?
Got mechanic type tools?
Your knowledge with your engine components?
Did my link make any sense at all, to you?
Your Turn. Raz, you dropped me back in on this DZ!
