When trying to crank my trunk it wont turn over. I checked the fuel lines, the fuel pump, and the fuel filter, they are all operational. I replaced the spark plugs. Its a new carburetor and the choke settings are right. If an ignitor is sprayed into the carburetor the engine will start but not stay running. It bogs down and stops.

Hi there,

Remove the fuel line into the carby and place a length of rubber hose over it and place open end into a jar, crank engine. If fuel pumping you will have a faulty needle and seat valve in the carby, if no fuel either the pump is not working, the pick up line is damaged or the tank is empty. Check all these things carefully.
