Mariner Help Please

Guys

My friend has just bought a Engine from Ebay.

On arrival he unpacked it, and tried to start it.

We made sure it was in Neutral, On start mode, fuel on.

Nothing, still after 25 Pulls.

What could this be? Its was shown working on Ebay.

It has been transported on its correct side.

I am bamboozzleed????????

Take the spark plug out and clean it-it's likely some crud has got on them if it's been bounced around. Might be crud stuck in a mainjet as well.

If it's in start position and the choke is on, it might be flooded.

Also whilst you have the plugs out check for a spark.

My arm feels like its gonna fall off.

Will try the plugs first.

Would a service at a dealer be recommended?

How much are they?

The plugs should be wet with fuel after all that pulling, if not suspect a fueling issue, if wet dry out check for a spark, replace, it should start.
