Sounds like my firestorm. I put a rotostart on it and it started for a second and hoped on my tailgate.

if you try to move the fly wheel and it moves a little rough then i would say it is probably the oneway bearing. i would check that anyway.

How dirty is the air filter? Clean it with break cleaner and re-oil it with air filter oil. Replace the glow plug Make sure all of the the bolts are tight. Not Superman tight, just tight.

You may be flooding the engine. You can get to much fuel in it and it will be real hard for the engine to turn over.
