To check the starter: key off, transmission in park or neutral, brake set. Pull off the small wire to starter solenoid. Then use a small jumper wire from battery cable post on the starter to the solenoid terminal (can also use a small screwdriver to bridge those terminals). Starter motor should engage the flywheel and spin the engine. If nothing, starter motor or solenoid is bad. If starter works, check for power on the small solenoid wire, with key held in crank. Wire should have power, if not, check start circuit from ignition switch to solenoid-the neutral safety switch is in that circuit.
Stand on a milk crate and undo the wires from the solenoid from the top. Also the nut at the front of the starter. The wire on the inside of the solenoid can be taken off when you drop the starter down. Hope this helps.
Nic, If the carburetor was dumping gas, remove the engine oil dip stick and see if it smells like gasoline. If it does you will need to change the oil.
Second, go back over your spark plug wires and verify they are on the correct spark plug. Start with the #1 plug wire, the firing order is 1,8,22.214.171.124.7.2...
Let me know how it turns out and we can go from there.
Sounds to me that the carb. is bad, most likely its a Qjet, best thing to do here is to have it rebuilt, but better yet get a replacement, unless you know someone that will rebuild it for you witch i dought, they don't call them Qjunk for nothing.
First thing unhook positive battery cable, unhook main cable on starter selanoid and small wire on selanoid (there may be 2 small wires) There may be a bracket on front of starter that has to be removed, and then the 2 main bolts that hold it to engine block and it should come out.
