Possibly Washed The Rings Running With No Oil Mix. If Compression Is Less Than 80 P.S.I. It Will Not Run. The Mix Should Be 24 To 1.( 3.5 Ounces Of Oil To 1 Gal. Of Fuel). Hope Its Not Too Late .

maybe wrong kind of sparkplugs...check which one you have in there, probably the "cold"ones...change them out for the higher temp ones.
