So my son picked this up from a neighbor who rarely used it. The primer bulb was shot so I replaced it hoping that would solve the issue of not starting. No luck. Next replaced the spark plug and then performed a through cleaning of the carburetor. Still no luck. Finally replaced the carburetor ( yeah it was a cheapie off of e-Bay) and fuel filter along with the fuel line but still it won't start, doesn't even sound like it wants to kick over. Used a spark tester to ensure power between the spark plug wire and the plug itself and it appears that I'm getting power to the plug. Whether it's sufficient enough is another question. The electric starter is shot which I hope to replace if in fact I can get this thing running. By the way, I did pull the plug again to ensure there was fuel getting to the cylinder which there was. I've exhausted everything I can think of and found no other tips on-line so if anyone has any other suggestions I'm open to trying just about anything.
