    Are you getting fuel to the engine at least? You say its not leaking but are you getting fuel to the carb? If you aren't getting fuel to come up the lines then there is a leak someplace. Did you try and prime the engine, does the fuel come up the lines. How is the idle set, if its set to far shut it won't start, and even by the factory setting it might be closed to much so open the idle just alittle more. Did you mess with the low speed needle? The reason I ask this alot of people don't know about that and they might have messed with it.

    How about the glow plug warmer, is that good to go is it heating the glow plug? Is it a pull start or the EZ start>?

    its a ez start, the blue wire is shot so im using a workin ignitor
  11. That would probably be the problem

    ok was the blue wire the problem or did you already know about it? Also many the EZ start is not cranking the engine over fast enough.
