It sounds like it wants to start but it won't turn over, getting plenty of fuel and fire

Do you
have the same problem?

Yes I did push the pedal down. Also replace the distributor cap on it. Went to start it this morning after leaving the battery unhooked and it sounded like is was going to roll over twice but didn't
