Re: carb problem

First what you got to do is to check if there is a good spark, if the sparkblug is wet, then dry it out, if the sparkplug gives a good spark and you cleaned out the plug and it still wont start! Then you got to make sure the hose line that carries the gas into the carb lets the gas come in, if everything is fine in the hose you will have to clean out the carb again because if you have rust in the tank it will get dirty again and again... There is one way you can check if the cyl and piston is ok just take out the sparkplug and spray little bit of gas inside the cylinder. If the cyl is ok it will fire up right away.
