    Did you follow any of Norms tips prior to running you motor? I read up on the forum here, to look for common problems with these little motors- my biggest issue with my early builds were air leaks, intake manifold gasket gave me trouble- leaking Head gasket can make "em hard to start...... These are some places to start-do you have any leaks at the head, look for seepage above the intake all the way round the head.

    any more details on what kind of problem?

    Care to tell us what engine you have? We could be of a lot more help if we knew what we were dealing with. 2 stroke, 4 stroke,? Engine brand? Give us something to work with here.
