Default Re: thought id start small...

Welcome brandon- I don't know your background so I'll be thorough,Turn the needle in until it seats gently, The range of adjustability should be 1 1/8 turns to 1 3/4 turns SO---Turn the needle out 1-1/4 turns, pull the aircleaner off and see that the choke flap is working, pull the plug and check for spark by lying it against the head while rotating engine, the spark should be blue, if the spark is orange ,it may not fire under compression,and replacing it may or may not cure the weak spark, If you have good spark, reinstall the plug, make sure the gas is on, if it doesn't flow down the tube there may be, depending on the carb a little silver button with a spring under it on the left side top of the carb, press the button down repeatedly till you see at least 1/4 of the fuel line filled, Then try to start it, I'll check back on ya UncleSalty
