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.
Ok, I didn't follow your instructions to the letter.
Just moments ago, I realized the turnigy AA glow lighter tool wasn't lighting because the end cap wasnt twisted on tight enough. The last few twists bring the metal on metal contact that closes the circuit.
Another problem was fuel wasnt getting to the motor, so the thumb over the carb intake definately was the key to it all. I quickly flooded the motor, and knew shortly I'd have it started. I was right. Unfortunately I can't break it in yet as it's noisy, and people are sleeping.

Thank-you to everyone!

Do I need to put my thumb over the intake to start everytime? I don't remember having to do this with my AE MMGT.

At average of 5C temperatures should I be running a warm or hot glow plug?
