how do you check if you have spark? also my spark plug (plug itself or the high voltage lead?) doesnt feel very secure (doesn't feel like it on very tight). i can easily pull it off.
Replace plug and wire and try to start. If it doesn't start, spray a short burst of throttle body cleaner/starting fluid in the throat of the carburetor and attempt to start. If the engine starts, weather it remains running or not, this will eliminate looking for a electrical problem.
