Take your glow plug out & check it to see if it will glow ,new ones are sometimes bad. Take your fuel line off tank ,put some tubing on filler , plug the vent & blow in the tube on the filler & see if fuel comes out . Put a piece of tubing on needle valve ,blow in it & listen in venturi for hissing noise .If you don't hear any open needle valve until you hear it . Carb may have junk in it & need cleaning . If you have fuel , compression & glow it should run .Good luck , MAX H. :D
