Can you see fuel getting into the carb when you're pulling on the starter? It sounds like it's not getting fuel. For the first start, pull the air filter off and put a finger/thumb over the carb then give it a few pulls on the starter. Once you can see fuel flowing in put the ignitor on and try firing it up again.
Thanks for the reply.
I can see fuel at least getting to the carb. I pulled the air filter off while I was attempting to start. I'll visually check to see if fuels getting into the carb.
To eliminate more unknowns, I will buy a quart of new fuel, and a new D cell for the igniter.
Will post results tonight.
