What motor is it? 2 or 4 stroke.i presume its a 2 stroke .I'm on the wirral so could be of help! Have you got a compression tester? once you've got compression 145psi roughly, i'd be looking for a spark . Remove the plug. put it in the HT lead and lean it against the metal cylinder case. As you pull the start cord there will be no compression so its easy to pull. you should see regular sparks.What does the plug look like? Black? Wet? brown? Dry?. I need to know a few more details. Where on the wirral are you? Me w.kirby. Getback to me for help.NIK
