Maybe it's completely flooded now?

Take all the plugs out, disconnect the fuel and turn it over a few times, leave for a while, turn over a few more times, drain the carbs down completely.

Then start again

Still nothing!

Don't get this!
Did you pump enough fuel through that it's got fresh fuel all the way up the fuel line?

The bulb was rock hard and the carbs filled up again. When I took out the plugs to check for sparks they were wet with petrol.

Swithering between thinking the fuel pump isn't working one minute and that I'm flooding it the next!

Seriously thinking of getting one of those boats with the big stick in the middle with the flappy thing on it!

Open the middle floatbowl drain up and start pumping fuel through with the primer bulb 'til you smell fresh fuel.

Take the plugs out and dry them by holding them in a flame (well away from the engine as it'll probably stink of fuel by now) and turn the engine over for 10 seconds with the killcord off and the plugs out.

Try to restart it without any choke or fast idle for a while.

Choke is not working, would be my guess.

i know i will be qrusified by the purists out there, but put clean/fresh plugs in and give it a dap of starter ether.
If it rumbles a bit, focus your attention on fuel system, if it doesent, its ignition.

You might try with start spray? If ignition works it will fire/start for a while, sometimes this also is enoght to get the carbs workin. Dont know how good/bad this stuf is for the engine but guess not too bad if not using often. Can be tricky to spray in to 3 carbs simulaneysly though.

DON'T use easystart EVER on a 2 stroke.

The plugs are wet and it's got sparks. You should only need to get fresh fuel through the system. If the plugs are wet with fuel the choke is probably working.It sounds flooded with stale fuel.
