#1-CHECK COMPRESSION!!!!, if #'s are atleast in the 90's , and within 10% of each other, THEN move forward checking spark and fuel.
if it has been sitting, need to tear down the carbs and clean them.

the easiest way is to pull the plug wires off, put a 16p nail in the cap, hold it real tight in there, and have someone spin the motor over. :0
