What do think of when after you remove the spark plug; pull the engine over and you get no spark. I don't see the piston moving either. I put a screw driver in the plug hole, resting atop the piston and pull it over and the screwdriver doesn't move. I do get an occasional amount of pressure if I put my thumb over the spark plug hole and pull the engine over... it's confusing but I was told this Tecumseh 5hp Model HSSK50 motor ran when they put it away last fall. It's on a Yard machine MTD 31A-611D129 model, 22" snowblower.
